The 19th post in the Stump the Social Media Guy series is for locomotive engineers.
A couple of years ago, one of the national rail companies was on a hiring drive, and they had several local positions open. I was tempted to apply, but then I remembered that I’d be away from my family for days (if not weeks) at a time. If I had been single, I probably would have done it.
Anyhow, you don’t see many popular social media accounts for locomotive engineers, which is kind of sad because I think content they would post would be popular. If you’re a locomotive engineer, post photos of the vistas you see. People love scenic photos. That’s a given.
To bump it up a notch, however, also consider posting time-lapse videos of trips you take. Not everyone can take a train (let alone in the areas of the country you travel), so this could be the next best thing to being there.
