This paper investigates the career paths of railroad operating employees (trainmen) from pre-employment to employment, to post-employment (retirement). Its purpose is to determine how a person comes initially to the operating craft; once working, to see how a person's career develops over his period employment (normally more than 30 years); and to consider his retirement. Using a modified version of Schein's career development model, the career of railroad employees is analyzed. A framework is provided within which to analyze forces that are acting to modify and change the current career development procedures.
