Time to go do something else for a living. Guess I'm going to see what working for the RailRoad is like. :thumb:

Conductor for Union Pacific. Then maybe Engineer in a few years depending on how things go. I'll be based out of Pocatello but my runs will include Nampa with layovers.

Really looking forward to it. Sittting in a cub all day surfing Planet has just about killed me. :thumb:

One of my old roomates works for the AK Railroad, normally a brakeman/"yard monkey" but he had to be a conductor for a couple days.... and yeah he did have a hat like that. Also a 3 piece suit, polished up shoes, etc.

He said it was a PITA because he had to play tourist guide for the people.

No passengers on these trains, Just a few bums now and then.

Anytime you feel the need to get dirty....We ALWAYS have more than enough work for everyone to do!
Would that include hiring someone if they are planning to move out that way? Cause I'm looking for a job around Boise area. I have been also thinking about Nampa and MT. Home.
