By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Did you ever have a model train? When you set it up, did you dream about driving the train? Did you ever watch a train go through a railroad crossing? Did you wave at the engineer? Lots of children dream about being an engineer.
 
2     Locomotive engineers are very skilled. They have years of experience. They operate large trains that carry cargo and passengers. They travel between stations in big cities and tiny towns.
