Ok, I admit I learned about this on another forum. But no harm in sharing it with another audience.

Looks like there's a job vacancy as a steam locomotive mechanic with the US National Parks at Promontory, UT.

I've never been to Promontory before, but according their website the steam loco there, 119, "is a fully operational replica of the Union Pacific’s locomotive that was present during the driving of the golden spike on May 10, 1869."

Sounds like a fun job for the right person. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
