Hi guys, completely new to this so forgive my ignorance. I’m really interested in getting into a career on the railway and currently being furloughed has only given me the time to start to investigate further. The dream role would be as a driver but after reading some of these threads I like the sound of a career in signalling. I currently work as a research specialist in the field of autonomous and connected vehicles/advanced driver assistance systems. Basically I have 2 questions:
1. Is looking at a career in signalling a wise move at the age of 25?
2. Would a role in signalling help me if I wanted to apply as trainee driver in the future?
Any high level insight into the role would be great and very much appreciated. Thanks.
I was about to give you a reply of 25 is ideal to apply for the job, but then read question 2....way to Alienate yourself (with respect).
