The railroad paid $5 an hour, the 1974 equivalent of about $23 an hour ($48,000 a year) today. It came with health benefits he didn't even think about for years and a pension that will let him retire at age 60 with health insurance for life. After a few years, Greg had worked his way up to an engineer's position, driving trains on round trips of several hundred miles on a brutally unpredictable schedule. The Sherrys' children, firstborn Allison and John, grew up knowing their father could be called onto the rails with two hours' notice, day or night.
