Work & Bad Order Cards

I've been cleaning up and organizing the RR and the RR rooms.  It occurred to me that you might be interested in the cards that I use to keep track of work problems on the RR and issues with rolling stock.  While I have only used these for my own use, I plan to place them around the layout for operator use.

I use Work and Bad Order Cards.  There are three types.
1. MOW Work Order Form - This is for issues with track, electrical, turnouts, signals, etc.
2. Locomotive Bad Order Form - This is obviously for issues with locomotives
3. Rolling Stock Bad Order Form - This is for all other rolling stock issues

I made these out of 8x11.5 yellow card stock, thick, but not too thick it will hang-up in the printer.  I print them sideways and can get three to a page from top to bottom. They are yellow so they stand out from other documents.  I have a hanger that I hang them on at the workbench.

Here are a couple photos.  The first shows the front and back of one Form.  The second photo shows the front of the other two forms, the back of all  three are the same and I use the back for notes, dates, etc.  I either hang on to the card in case the issue is not resolved, or if something happens again in the near future.  Or, I can just throw it away.  You can file them too if you want.  I'm working on getting as paperless as I can, so I'll probably figure out someway to file these in my Evernote files.

Here are the photos.  Have fun!
