As of (07-10-12) I am no longer employed by the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. I had a meeting with Ken Matzick the interim GM and he explained to me that since so much of my old job is now being handled by others that HRM no longer needs me as a employee.

I was not given a job description and was not trained for The Retail Sales Manager job which was then given to me.

I would of posted this when it happened but I was waiting for a signed termination letter which I have asked for but as of today I still don't have one but I wanted to post this before a bunch of rumors get started.

Bottom Line: I have been fired and that is OK. IMHO the management company is doing what they believe is best for the railroad.

I was offered another part time, seasonal position with the railroad which I turned down. The compensation offered was probably all the railroad could afford, but well below reasonable for the job.

IMHO: Nothing else needs to be said and I am still a 100% supporter of the railroad and I plan on remaining a 100% supporter of the railroad. I will make myself available to the railroad on a contract basis if they want me to do something for them.

IMHO: It was a fun ride and I have no regrets and I wish HRM and the Cumbres & Toltec the best of luck in everything they do.
