Don't Pull So Hard

For anyone serving as a conductor on CA&E cars, either wood or steel: don't yank the buzzer cord so hard! The cord is connected to an electrical switch that turns the buzzers on and off, and pulling it harder doesn't do any good. A gentle pull is all that's needed. Last week we had a cord get pulled out of the hook, and sooner or later something will break. I guess everybody's used to yanking the cords on North Shore cars to ring the gong at the other end of the car, but these cars are different. Thanks!
