- The New Mexico Rail Runner employed lots of retired Chicago train people (commuter train) when it first opened. For most ofthem it was their retirement job. They liked the weather in NM. !!Susan HershbergerPhone number 1-480-823-8046"All I want is to travel the world, read books that take my breath away, and occasionally write something meaningful."

I only have experience as a patron and also working just a bit with Amtrak conductors in Norman, OK. I would say being a conductor can be a thankless job or a great experience depending upon where you land. The hours are odd. However, if you are a people person and would be seeking to keep passengers safe and happy it might be your cup of tea.
I don't know about the engineer side.

Subject: [fred_harvey] Amtrak applicationsI decided to try something totally crazy and apply for some jobs with Amtrak: Passenger Conductor Trainee and passenger Engineer Trainee positions.
Anybody have any experience with this?
Probably a long shot, but thought it worth a try -- you only live once...
