Many have often thought that they would have liked to work for a railroad. This volume (the third in a series) will take a prospective employee through the transition era (from steam locomotives to diesel) and right up through our modern era. The pros and cons of a job in the railroad industry are discussed and documented through the true accounts of former and current railroad employees in the format of over 80 short stories. This book, written in the style of O. Henry, is particularly relevant to historians, railfans, and anyone else considering making the railroad or transportation industry a career. A very entertaining little volume!
