If I were younger, I'd be tempted to go try to get on with one of the Class 1's. Don't think they'd be too interested in a 52 year old though. Doubt my shortline and tourist rr experience would mean much to them, either.
Chad: Are you a conductor trainee or an engineer trainee? Or are you finished schooling? You've been out of touch for some time... so I haven't a clue what your job is.

GO FOR IT!! I've appiled twice to UP and last time I tried I asked about a manatory retirement age and they said nope they've even got a 70+ Electrician working for them. Also at that hiring session was a 60yr old trying out for the position. IMHO I think there eyes would lit up at your experience.

“Don't think they'd be too interested in a 52 year old though.”
The last couple of classes I taught (conductor training) had at least one or two people around your age. If you are interested they will hire you. Depending on where you are living I can probable get you in touch with a recruiter. Just remember it can be a miserable life style. I have seen first hand how new hires have no clue as to what they are getting them selves into.

'As for Andre getting back into the business, my first reaction was "go for it", but then I remembered that if he did that we would probable lose out on some great future routes as he would just be too busy to do anymore. I do know how much you like railroading in the real world Andre, but we really need you here. But whatever you decide to do you have my full support and hope you have made the right decision for you and your family.
Again Erik, nice work and keep it up. Keep us posted on what you are doing from time to time, and get us some more great pics!
