Default Railroaders?

Who here is a railroad employee? What railroad, area, and craft?

I'm an Engineer for the Union Pacific in Oregon.

I was a conductor/switchman for Respondek RR Corp. until being furloughed in October, now I am currently working for Batteries Plus, and pursuing an education in Graphic Design.

Scratch that. I now work for Utterly Pathetic (Union Pacific).

Switchman, Engineer, for an industrial site before supervising the operation.

I'm in a totally different occupation now.
