I'm a locomotive engineer for a fairly large railroad. I get to play with the trains that everyone loves to hate. The problem is that I hate 'em too. I'm away from home far too often... usually 3 to 5 days a week, often only home for about 6 or 7 hrs at a time. It pays well, the benefits can't be beat, and there is an excellent retirement after another 24 yrs.
this is what I look at all day everyday
(minus the little kink in the rail that is not s'posed to be there)
I thought I had some locomotive pics too, but I guess they've been deleted.
