Prayers for new job

Hey guys,

I just got word from a friend of mine on the railroad that he thinks he has a spot for me working a few days a week on their steam locomotives and passenger car fleet.

This would be a huge deal for me as its been extremely hard to find a railroad job ever since I got laid off in 2011. As many of you know I've been working crap jobs up here in jerk water country to get by the last few years.

Been doing a lot of praying and would really appreciate your prayers as well. Fingers crossed, this may be my chance to get the foot back in the door and kickstart the old RR Retirement.

    What happened to the car restoration gig? That sounded like tons of fun.

    Thanks for all the well wishes fellas; it's looking good! I talked to my friend a good hour last night. Right now they're looking at giving me 2 days a week on the steamie and other projects in their passenger fleet. That's definitely a step in the right direction.

    @webmost Still planning to do that - we're waiting on the business license to go through now. This gig would only be a few days a week tops for the forseable future, although I'd go full time in a heartbeat if asked. At the end of the day trains come before cars.

    @Markwell, Wishing you the best man! That RR retirement is crazy with the benefits and all, know an older lady who is an engineer with BNSF and she's straight setup for life!
    If you quote me do the @TX98Z28 in your text or I won't be notified of your quote, Thanks.
