If I wave at all it's definitely the "General acknowledgment wave"
The General Acknowledgment Wave is that act referred to as GAWking ?

You can thank Mitch for bringing that video to my attention. All three parts of the vid are on youtube as well. After I started watching, I couldn't pull myself away from seeing the Skipper and Professor in a railroad show.

And Chris, your wave is cool.

I realize that you have to size up the situation as you encounter them. Remember the rules are made to protect the railroads, should there be an incident the company is protected not the employee.
--------------- I stand corrected!! Lol

I stand corrected on the "Go work and you'll know part" however, as I mentioned before, you can tell the difference between a desperate and panic wave vs. a friendly wave.

Pardon my sarcasm, it was my way of not only agreeing with you but attempting to add some dry wit to it. Seriously though, society has changed since 911, as has the litigation in the courts and as such you on the front line, must follow the rules, common sense and safety. Any variation may cost you your job. Times change eh?
