Eric Hadder has loved trains since he was two years old.

Pursing that passion brought him to the UA, where he received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering in 1995. Hadder explains his pathway to chief mechanical officer at the Grand Canyon Railway in an interview with the New York Times.
