In another sign the economy is improving, Norfolk Southern Railway says it needs to hire more conductors in Pennsylvania.
The company says it plans to hold recruiting sessions Tuesday, March 20, in Harrisburg, Pa., and Thursday, March 22, in the Allentown, Pa., area to seek candidates for train conductor positions.
Those selected will join NS as conductor trainees, who operate switches, couple rail cars, and work on trains in yards or over the road.
NS says it has hired more than 600 people since January and expects to add another 2,000 workers in 2012.
