Transportation: Train Crew


Our Transportation team of approximately 18,500 employees gets things moving, literally.

This team, our largest, is made up of the train crews – a locomotive engineer and conductor — that collectively operate about 1,600 trains a day, moving them from point to point across the BNSF railway network. The transportation team also includes crews who work within our rail yards to switch, or reassign, freight cars to build trains or pick up and deliver freight to customer locations. Union agreements require that only promoted BNSF conductors can become locomotive engineers. Dispatchers, who have an assigned territory over which they direct multiple trains, are also part of transportation. Additionally, more than 1,400 supervisors oversee the entire transportation system, which operates in 28 states and two Canadian provinces.

The over-the-road crews are those based from a “home” location and are oncall 24/7. Yard crews are assigned to a specific terminal/yard and work a set schedule. The dispatchers also work a set schedule, from one of four dispatching operations centers. All work together to make sure our customers’ freight arrives on time, damage-free and, above all, safely.

Freight trains operate around the clock, as do the people in Transportation. Employees work nights, weekends, holidays and on call. Employees work both indoors and outdoors in all weather conditions. Work may require travel and time away from home. The majority of employees in Transportation are scheduled (union-represented).
