Default Open door = reject?

So now does a open door on the front of the locomotive mean a reject? Myself and someone else have had this problem.

In Canada, the doors are usually always open to allow a breeze to run through. Both CN & CP do this, as does the company I work for Canac. Not sure how the US operates but when I am there I never find a open door.

So why; "The open door is VERY distracting."

Thank you...

If its a noes door its a shot killer. The one thing i don't like about CN's wide noes cabs, No AC.

Sometimes an open door tells a part of the story

I cannot really blame train crews for wanting to have the door open if itís over 80 degrees outside and theyíre working without air conditioning. Keep shooting the photos and if they arenít what youíre looking for wait and shoot it another day, because its not thereís only one CN Dash 9 out there.

Its the wide noes doors with the logos on them that they don't want open. Not the standard cabs doors.
