    In my early days of wokring, so many jobs, loved it, never out of work, great life experience gained.
    I worked for the railway southern rail, ended up rlfrailman/shunter interesting job
    A driver let me drive a train once, from the sidings to platform great experience, i dare say he could have be sacked for it
    it was electric not steam, I'm not that old
    I look back could have been a great career, destined for great heights then,

    Chuffed about driving it!
