For some time now I have not been happy in my present job. Truthfully, it bores me to tears. I've been checking the papers and our local job center frequently trying to find something else but pickings have been slim. The best job I've come up with so far is almost $2.00 less an hour than I make now and would have me right back into the same line of work. So now I'm starting to wonder about finding something in the railroad industry. I'd really like to see what it's like to be a conductor but I have no idea how to go about it. Where would I start? Do I need special schooling for this or wold I be trained by the railroad? Also, is 38 a bit too late to be considering a career in railraoding? Your input on this would be appreciated.
