What does it involve?
Train Drivers drive passenger and freight trains. They know operating codes and signals, understanding rules and regulations for safe operation, understand radio protocols and shunting (pushing and pulling wagons or carriages using a locomotive).
Typically, train drivers work shifts but may have a 10-hour day. Train drivers drive trains to destinations according to a schedule, identify faults, read route updates and comply with safety rules in emergency or breakdowns.
