Please Take Note
Trains are amazing pieces of machinery and are a joy to operate and work on. However, they are hazardous places to be especially as you are dealing with steam, fire, coal, diesel and oils. All candidates are advised to wear stout/sturdy footwear, ideally safety shoes/boots, an old pair of jeans and a long-sleeved cotton shirt.
Training shoes, canvas shoes or open shoes are not permitted on the footplate.
