ENGINEERING

Think of the immense responsibility of making sure that: mainline and other trackage was properly constructed and maintained so that locomotives and rolling stock could be operated safely; signals were installed and maintained consistent to standards; bridges and other structures were constructed and maintained to support the weight of trains; and buildings were appropriately constructed and maintained for occupancy by Southern Pacific's personnel.
