How Much Does a Railroad Engineer Make Per Year? Average Railroad Engineer Salary?

The salaries of railroad engineers vary depending on the number of years of service they have put in. On average, a railroad engineer earns $60,000 annually. Railroad engineers or locomotive engineers operate trains that carry passengers or freight to various destinations. Yard engineers operate automated systems that move passengers and freight cars into place in rail yards. They check the trains for any mechanical problems after every run and if any error is traced, they take necessary steps to rectify them immediately or before the train depart next. Those who aspire to become railroad engineers mostly begin their career as yard laborers and attain the position of a railroad engineer over a period of time.
