I'm sitting on an Empire Service Amtrak train, headed from Penn to upstate where one of my oldest friends will collect me for a weekend of skiing and shenanigans. I know the conductors for NJ Transit are only out during the day/night and work in shifts like normal people. I couldn't help but ask the Amtrak conductor if they had layovers. And they do. So whilst the airlines might not be hiring, you can gain a similar experience collecting the tickets on the train around the country. I guess it's kind of like working for a regional carrier, only there's more room in the cabin!!!
