Also would risk derailing or something, possibly killing people. It's like saying a train could run around a 40mph limited curve at 80mph because it would get there earlier...WSXFan said:Then he'll be a good few minutes early, and will have plenty of slack if he gets held at a signal!
And those trains/workers around you too, espeically with a whole line of wagons and containers behind you!James 66526 said:The first priority is safety. No driver would compromise that just to "get there a bit early". Not worth it at all and you would lose your job. It's a highly responsible job, being in charge ofthe lives of 100s of people on your train.
A sense of humour is essential for a good personality, as I'm sure you'll agree WSXFan. People with no sense of humour are very dull in my opinion (I'm not singling anyone out...). I have one (got it from eBay ) and often make my mates laugh.WSXFan said:Another instance of people thinking something different to what I was. I never suggested any driver would drive too fast to save a couple of minutes, far from it. Indeed, I was suggesting humour in my post, but never mind. 'Get a sense of humour'. Tried that, people shoot me down for it...:roll:
