Definitely go for it, what do you have to lose?
Everybody makes mistakes but as long as you emphasise what you have learned from it then hopefully you’ll be ok.
Just be honest!
Good luck.

If it's an on-board cleaner role I should think you'd be fine as long as you declare it (though expect obvious questions like how are you going to get to work when public transport isn't running etc). If it's a cleaner role which requires you to go on depot/on track doing external train cleaning then, again it should be okay but depending on the exact nature of the role it might fall under the Drugs & Alcohol requirements for safety critical work and a drink or drug related conviction may result in some (all?) TOCs imposing a disqualification period from doing such work post-conviction.
