is anyone here a train driver?
Jobs for the boys ?
No. A mate got one of these jobs:
Basically they wanted folk who understand safety and take instruction. He was ex-Electricity Board on cables/power-lines etc.
Took about 7 days of time off to go through all the interviews/processes.Posted 4 years agobruneepSubscriberFirestarter wrote:
Ive an interview coming up early stages yet but it means leaving the fire service and my 17 years worth of pension and being very very poor for a year if I manage to get a start.
Or stay in FS and be poor for the rest of your career, who knows what will happen to the Rail industry now Bob has gone.Posted 4 years ago

Is it stress free enough to sleep on the job?
Sleeping on the job? Does that happen to train driver? 😯
Surely you can’t have an entire rail system built on sleepers?
I doubt there is enough passenger for sleepers unless the traveling time is more than 8 hrs. No?
The last sleepers I used was in Thailand … bloody hell talking about slow … but fun though.
p/s: just saw the “boom-tish!” above … 😆 Okay okay … I get it. Bloody train joke.Posted 4 years ago
Br I would be trying to transfer the funds out as I wouldn’t trust the gov to leave it alone. They have already destroyed my army pension
Tell me I’m wrong, but I understood that the Train Drivers pension was a Govt backed one too?
And tbh you should never amalgamate pensions – eggs and baskets…Posted 4 years ago

You might want to run that idea past any drivers that have had suicides (or accidents).
Accidents? Yes, there is a danger working in all transportation job.
Suicide has nothing to do with the job but rather the individuals themselves. i.e. their mental health.Posted 4 years ago
