Railroad Business Is Up

They just keep on chuggin' along.

Business is up for railroads.

Now companies are training and recruiting more people to work on the trains.

Thousands of retiring baby boomers mean companies like Union Pacific are hiring just as business is surging.

The companies are hoping Iraq war veterans and laid off factory workers will join the railroads.

Hours are not always good, but a rookie can make up to 40,000 dollars a year.
