I did apply for the trainee conductor for Cardiff, Treherbert and Rhymney. Heard back a week later...someone else i know applied and had an update email a week later saying due to a high volume of applicants they are sifting through but they will let people know of the outcome. That was about 3 weeks ago.I've just applied for TFW trainee conductors role at Crewe.
Anyone got any info on number of positions, timescales or what the selection process is like?
Any info appreciated.
Did you get through mate?I did apply for the trainee conductor for Cardiff, Treherbert and Rhymney.

I work in the aviation industry which is safety critical on its own! Many more opportunities will crop up. I've applied for other roles at TfW...just haven't mentioned the railway because as i mentioned before it might not work in my favor.Sorry to hear that. Not sure you would get marked down for having safety Critical experience on a railway. I know plenty of heritage rail drivers who have then used that to secure a toc driving role with their only experience being heritage. Keep going mate, you will get there.
Last round my brother failed it. Took them about three weeksHello all - not entirely sure how this forum works at the mo! However...
I applied for a Trainee Conductor role TFW. I am through shortlisting and have completed online Scaat with a deadline of 4th June. Anyone know how long it may take to be advised if successful re progression to the next stage?
Thank you. I've applied for Crewe and not heard anything. I'll be patient and expect a wait.I applied in September for Chester, forgot all about it then got a response last month inviting me to do the online SCAAT. Email the following week advising I had passed and they'd be in touch in a few weeks.
Not heard anything since, but reading through other threads it seems there is a huge backlog of trainees in Chester, people who have been waiting for courses for the past year etc so I'm guessing it could be quite a wait!
Presumably if Crewe based staff are trained at Chester too you will also be in for a wait!
Was this just the Scaat test? Finding symbols?Hello all,
I have just attempted the TCT test linked to application for the post of Trainee Train Conductor. 10 mins for 40 questions. I realise (I hope!) this is impossible.. Manage to get to 21 before timed out and am wondering how other people may have got on.
