For the next few weeks, I’ll be away on vacation with my family. During my time away, we’re digging into the archives and sharing some of our most popular episodes. This week, we bring you our conversation with BNSF Railway Company Train Conductor Mark Mohr.
TCH Encore Presentation – Train Conductor Mark Mohr
Maybe it’s a guy thing, but I find trains fascinating. Whether it’s a freight train making its way through the Rockies or a passenger train transporting travelers at speeds in excess of 100 mph across the Channel Tunnel in Europe, trains are impressive machines.
When my colleague shared that her husband worked for BNSF Railway Company, I made it my mission to figure out a way to visit with him about his experiences as a certified train conductor.
Mark Mohr grew up in W. St. Paul Minnesota. In 1972 he graduated from Henry Sibley High School, where an interest and aptitude test predicted a railroading career. For several years, he was sidetracked (pun intended) by jobs in banking and insurance.
However, he has finally made his high school guidance counselor proud and proven the validity of standardized tests.
Mark is an avid sports fan, a voracious reader and active in his faith life. It might be an understatement to say that Mark is a diehard Gopher fan, considering his wedding ring is maroon and gold. When Mark is not riding the rails, he lives with his wife, Pat, in Sartell, Minnesota.
