It would be helpful to list location and the actual name of your organization- not everyone knows the abbreviations. I would guess it isn't the European Truck Racing Championship, which is what you get with ETRC in google.

Fair enough. East Tennessee Rail Car Services, Inc. is ETRC. If you look at the first line under "General" you'll note that we did mention where we were located. I trust that most folks would reach the same conclusion you did and suspect that the European Truck Racing Championship is not likely to be advertising for Passenger Car Mechanics on RYPN.

I apologize, I missed the Oak Ridge, TN. If I had seen that I could have probably been able to find you guys. That's on me.
