Re: RR Watches?

Time pieces are so accurate now days, that certified watches are no longer required. And since most railroads no longer run trains based on timetable clearance, it's not critical to know the exact time anyway. Even with foreman's orders, we generally call them up to an hour before they go on duty, just to make sure. We used to have to call and verify our watch every time we went on duty, but I'm not sure the railroad even has a time phone number anymore. Does the phone company still have one even??
