    Trainee Train Drivers - Manchester & York (21/09/21)

    Nope! I'm either 5ft0 or 5ft1 and I'm a trainee for GTR. My trainer said there's other female drivers shorter then me and they carry a foldaway step ladder (e.g incase they need to isolate the doors and reaching the top bit)

    Trainee train driver training

    Great advice. I'm currently in week 4 (was supposed to be on week 7 but due to a trainer not being available we was side tracked for 3 weeks). All the trainers are fantastic and it is a lot to learn. Got week 5 exam next week followed by 3 weeks of front ending and seeing everything I've learnt...

    Tips for earlies

    I've done shift work for about 5 years now. To be fair, when I'm on earlies I'm quite restless throughout the night as I'm always worried about not waking up thus waking up every hour or so lol. I've never struggled to wake up. I usually end up having a nap in the afternoon. But like what others...

    Will GCSE grades be checked?

    Lol, not like u put a instead of e. I'd probably leave it. None of my railway jobs have asked me for GCSE except gtr but that's because it's an apprenticeship.
