Dream Job, they paid me to talk about trains by Scott Hurd.
My 36-year career with Amtrak was in my blood from my Grandpa Rooks that worked 50 years as a conductor on the Great Northern and my father Jim Hurd that worked 36 years as a conductor on the Southern Pacific. Growing up and working 30 years at Union Station with the former Portland Terminal Railroad guys. Working 6 years in Amtrak Sales & Marketing in San Francisco and Indianapolis. It’s been quite a ride.

Meetings of the membership are held every month, usually on the third Friday. Visitors are warmly welcomed! Typically, we first address the general business of the Chapter. This can be a great time to learn about not only what the PNWC is doing, but also what other rail-related groups are doing in the region and around the world. We then break for refreshments, and after the break we have the program. Monthly programs are always interesting and often feature guest speakers, multimedia presentations or videos selected from our extensive library.
