I dig your video, DJ. I'm not sure where you work, but I can tell you don't work for BNSF or UP. Just for some perspective, here's my take on your terms from a BNSF piglet's point of view:
I know its not railroad related, but that reminds me of a time when I was driving my '68 Barracuda 340-S through Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, and stopped at a traffic light. An elderly gentleman was at a gas station close by, filling up the tank of his new Land Rover. He called out to me, "Owncha bur sum rub op dum tar." I was a few miles down the road before I figured out he was saying, "Why don't you burn some rubber off those tires."Here's my version of his car counts:
"Foe. Chree ubbum. Toomuh. Laaaah twun. Stoppem owna chree oh sem."
"Four. Three of them. Two more. Last one. Stop 'em on the 307."
He's a hell of a switchman but I got nervous unless it was on hand signals.
