Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Locomotive Engineers, more experience in the field does not usually mean bigger paychecks. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $67K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $80K on average — a distinctly larger sum. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $83K. Locomotive Engineers with more than 20 years of experience report incomes that are no higher than those with 10 to 20 years on the job.
