Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen – Div 253 – Portage, WI

Who we are...

Welcome to the new and improved BLET Division 253 Website. A useful resource for communicating important and accurate information to our members and prospective members. This is a work in progress so after reviewing what we have so far, feel free to offer ideas that will help make it more useful. As you can see, our members are access to the log in to the Crew Information page. There is a forum to ask Brother Vesely questions on issues that come up. We have put together a little FAQ section to help answer questions on common issues, we also have vacation schedule info.
