Pros And Cons

Railing Pros/Cons


-Beats working in a factory or office all day, each trip is different even if you’re going over the same miles of rails time and time again.
-The money isn`t so bad for just needing a high school diploma/GED as the minimum education requirement.
-You get to travel a lot depending on the road you work for.
-working for a short line you may only see the same stretch of tracks each night, unless there are multiple jobs out of your home terminal.
– The sunset and sunrise are very beautiful and you can see a lot of “ scenery “ during the summer if you catch my drift.
-Good to great pay (depending on what type of job one may be marked up—on a long overdue pay raise just went in effect)

-Working in all kinds of weather at all times of the year. -Missing out of a lot of family and personal functions due to having to work.

– Schedule sucks
– Crew callers get in the way of resting on days off.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    That is the right weblog for anyone who needs to search out out about this topic. You understand a lot its virtually laborious to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You positively put a brand new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just great!
