This would depend on position. If you have an in-office position, then most of the times, it is within normal business hours, M-F. If it is a field position, the average shift can be 10 -14 hours, which can include weekends and/or holidays - depending on the project worked.

I work from 6:30 to 5:30 now
Contrary to the uneducated "average hours" comment, you work long hours. When running certain types of track protection you work at least two hours longer than the crews you are protecting. An average day is 12 hours long. Many times the you are working 15 hours a day six to seven days a week. You are always subject to audit by RR, FRA, and over burdened managers strapped by arrogant executives who move you around like pawns on a chess board. There is a lot riding on you being mentally ready and capable of handling extreme pressure. If you lack the concern and alertness people can die or your mistake will be on the CNN national news.
