Well I think a lot of it would probably depend on what area of the country you are considering moving to.

Amtrak is the national railroad, so they hire people from all over the country. A freight line like CSX also has a pretty large reach, but I think they are mostly confined to the east coast.

The commuter rails that exist in the USA are locally run.

In the New York City area there are three major commuter lines. The one for New Jersey is NJ Transit. The one for Long Island is the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and the one for Conneticut and Westchester county is Metro North.

Are you qualified to run a subway? The New York Subway system is always looking for qualified people. You might want to look into that.

The best thing to do is email all the rail companies to find out. Unless somebody here works for them, there is no definate answer we can give you. The only problem i see is people understanding your brummie accent :P
