Looked at UP's job postings for operations staff. It's not a bad gig if you're okay with working year-round outside, can do some moderately physical labor, and have the proper mindset to work around heavy equipment. Starting base pay for train crew is $55k, which seems to be mostly yard work and the site says is a direct path to conductor or locomotive engineer, which is $88k base. Probably gobs of overtime right now, too. Plus it has a proper pension.

If I weren't already living out most little boys' dream in my current job, I'd head West and drive a train to live out another one.

You'll never get a weekend off for 20 years.  Or a holiday. Or any important event that may occur in your life.
