Locomotive Engineers

Employment for locomotive engineers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Many openings will arise from the need to replace the large number of workers who are expected to retire in the next decade. Other factors fueling employment growth include increasing demand for passenger freight transportation in the United States and recent federal legislation that has raised the number of hours engineers must rest between work shifts (which has created a need for more workers to cover shifts).
