Trevor> Sorry to burst your bubble son, I am 17, and wanna work for CSX. However, most if not all of the ex-D&H equipment, except the Baldwin Sharks (Privately Owned), and a few PA's are either gone, or in a Booster capacity.... sorry.

Yesterday I got an email from Metro-North offering me the chance to take the test for Assistant Conductor. :P :wink:
I've been submitting applications and resumes since I turned 18 over 3 years ago

Most railroads hire you as a conductor. The days of starting as a brakeman and working your way up is gone, except for some railroads.

The brakeman assists the conductor on the ground. Particularly helpful in switching.
As evidenced by increasing dwell times, remotes are no replacement for a three man crew.

I took the assistant conductors test and passed! They told us it'd take 3 weeks to hear back, I heard back in 2 days! Now I'm just waiting to hear back from them again
