This is a short story about a single trip during my eight year railroading career. This trip occured during my locomotive engineer training and was the trip that would determine whether or not I would be promoted to locomotive engineer. The story gives some insight as to what it is like working as a locomotive engineer and taking a train down Sand patch grade.
I worked for CSX railroad for almost eight years; first as a conductor and then as a locomotive engineer.
