Louisville and Nashville has a training program for communications men. Most new men joining the communications department start with crews maintaining pole lines. L&N constructed a pole line for training. During the training period of about one month, the men play catch with a basketball while strapped to the poles. Such practice develop confidence and dexterity at heights. Train operations and safety are also reviewed for the men. They are encouraged to enroll for electronics correspondence courses.
