Mr. Sean Porter
Hiring Manager
Billings Train Station
290 Miles Avenue
Billings, MT 27382

Dear Mr. Porter:

While researching railroad companies, I discovered an opening on your website for a train conductor. I would like to be considered for this position as I fit the bill for all the requirements that you have posted in the job description.

Specifically, my expertise lies in the following areas:

● Switching Functions
● Electronic Monitoring Devices
● Traffic Routing
● Route Scheduling
● Emergency Response
● Train and Equipment Inspection
● Crew Activities Supervision
● Freight / Cargo Handling 

I am long on effort and enthusiasm as far as working as a train conductor is concerned. Anticipating being credited with a big slice of success by performing beyond my best in this role, I invite you to review the accompanying resume. I can safely claim that you will not find an individual who possesses as much exposure to performing the signaling duties, combining and separating cars, inspecting cars periodically, examining freight cars for compliance with sealing procedures, and verifying the accuracy of timekeeping instruments as I do.

I will be in touch with your executive assistant after 5 days to determine a free time slot in your schedule so that we can meet in person. Until then, I am available at (333) 333-3333. 

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Jacob Hunt
