I spent a number of years on an industrial railroad as relief switchman and engineer before going to management. Dealt with BN mostly.
BTW I still have a 1995 BN calendar with all the historic company dates marked. (Not bad for a Canadian).

Missed this one first time round, does the UK count?

If so, I am a Signaller (nearest equivalent in the States would probably be a dispatcher).
