Dear Mr. Richards:

My experience as one of several railroad brake, signal, and switch operators with East-West Railway while living on the East Coast has prepared me for the job in this field, which you listed on JobBankUSA.com. I am now on the West Coast and am ready for employment as a railroad brake, signal, and switch operator with R & R, if you decide to hire me.

May we meet in person to discuss what I can bring to this job? I can start work immediately and am willing to take the evening or night shift if necessary, in order to get the position.

Please phone me at 777-777-7777 so we can arrange a date and time that suits your schedule. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have, as well. Thank you for taking a moment to read and consider my cover letter.
