Richard had no inclination of working for the railroad. Midway through his corporate career, he was musing about the general state of the railroad industry. The same week, by uncanny coincidence, one of his coworkers shared a train conductor recruiting ad in the newspaper (one of those paper publications as nostalgic as trains). He signed up, jumped the corporate ship, started riding the rails and never looked back...except when he needed to examine a hot axle on the 145th car (that's part of his job).
