Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading
One of our members recently applied for work at one of the big railroad companies and you all pitched in with practical advise about how to go about it.
I'm likewise soliciting advice, although my goals are somewhat more modest. My office here in LA is downsizing and I'll be cut free in a few months so its time to start looking for new work.
If possible here in LA, would there be the means of finding railroad work with a smaller operation, a short line perhaps, or the port which has its own railroad.
I'm 46, in good health, single, and without any family issues that would prevent me from putting in the hours that starting out requires. I'm used to working long hours and so forth, so I think that I have the practical outlook that would give me an advantage, despite no experience in the business.
