Well, I have an interview on Monday for a train conductor job with BNSF. Pays 41K+ the first year and once you upgrade to engineer (think FO = conductor, captain = engineer) pay goes from 75K to 175K a year. I don't think it's a long term plan as it doesn't require quite as much thought as flying, but it would get me back on my feet after 3 years of CFI pay. Has anyone made this switch before. Does anyone enjoy it?
