    GWR Trains & Tractions

    This now makes sense re the 800/802 trains. Thank you for the Clarity :) The 158s and 43s are both Diesel powered units I am assuming?

    GWR Trains & Tractions

    Hi. I'm fairly new to the forum however I'm looking for some up to date information on the types of trains running from GWR Plymouth. I was recently informed of the following and wondered how accurate this information is; East Tractions: 800 and 802 class (inter-city express trains) 165 and...

    MMI or DMI

    Hi. Just seen this post flag up and curious to know what TOC this is for and is it soon? It's potentially a good sign that Train Driver recruitment may start to progress in the near future :) Best of luck with your MMI

    GWR DMI Plymouth

    Not expecting anything anytime soon. My understanding of other roles advertising would surely show that TOCs are able to schedule some training again; in light of the pandemic numbers reducing. Just a common sense analogy. As I had stated - information from GWR has been brief and inconclusive...

    GWR DMI Plymouth

    I passed stage 2 + MMI in November 2019. This was via a talent pool application which seemed to be progressing steadily until Covid. I have contacted HR and they have just reiterated no plans to re-start recruitment until 2021. After this it depends which stations are allocated budgets first...

    Dan 2610 - thanks for your earlier update on how the talent pool works, it sounds more realistic & positive than some people have explained.

    GWR Train Driver talent pool 2019/20

    It really does seem that the GWR talent pools are a lottery as to how long you are kept waiting. Shame as clearly a lot of people very keen to start. Guess the important thing now is to be patient & prepared to sit it out. Can anyone offer any advice on the DMI and what I could be studying in...

    GWR Train Driver talent pool 2019/20

    Good to hear from someone in the same pool. I don't fully understand how many sit in a talent pool at any given time however I am realistic about time frames and additional waiting due to Covid. I'm not expecting to hear anything until after the new fincial year in 2021. Looking at it as a...

    Hi Guys & Girls... This is just a thread for those currently in the recruitment process for GWR Train Driver - Plymouth - awaiting a Driver Manager Interview. I'm aware that there are significant delays due to Covid with most TOC processes looking set for the new financial year of 2021. So...

    GWR Train manager recruitment

    Well done on passing, not an easy process by far! Appears we are in the same boat. I have only heard that Driver recruitment is being prioritised into 2020 and that recruitment don't have any time frames yet (this was in December and on a reply from the guards recruitment team). If I here...

    That's reassuring that you have been able to use the pass for an alternative TOC and bypass the earlier stages :) I'm sure you'll be fine. 10 days can feel like a long time but in the grand scheme of the entire process it's not long. Best of luck!
