As a reminder, if you have PL days remaining they need to be DENIED or used by DEC 31. Once they are denied, tell CMS you want to carry them over to next year. Once they are carried over, you then have until May 1, 2014 to use them. Conductors get PL days every year. Engineers must have 180 starts in the current year to receive PL days for next year. If you are a setback engineer promoted to engineer, your starts you had as a conductor will count for next years calculation of PL days.
