Dear Mr. Hendrickson:

My five years of experience with the Transportation Corps of the United States Army has prepared me for the job you've advertised on JobBankUSA.com for a locomotive engineer. I have been a 'train man' since childhood and have dreamed about such a career.

I'm aware of the responsibility and opportunities available to qualified locomotive engineers today. I'm trained to run either a diesel-electric or electrically-powered locomotive. I would welcome the chance to be employed by your railroad company.

May I meet you in person to talk more about this job requirement for S & L Railroad and to expand on my background? I'm available at your convenience any weekday except Thursday. Please phone me at 345-678-9999 to arrange a get-together that works for your schedule. Thank you for considering my cover letter.
