    The forms you have to fill in now are standard from the RRB or whatever. They've replaced whatever atoc forms used to be. European licence has to go on any safety of the line that's recorded on your file needs to be filled in and it says have you ever been removed from driving due to illness or something like that. Then your manager has to confirm it. A friend of mine got on at vtwc a few yrs ago and didn't declare a missed station or a tpws as they were over 5yrs old. But now you've got to declare everything

    Unfortunately they do. Anything you report to the signaller and their report to your Control. It's goes on record and recored. You be Exonerated of course but still remains. I would advise any drive to get a copy of your records from your file. Section 9 normally (operating incident) I always ask my DM for an up-to-date copy.

    No word from them. Would be nice to say they received your application at least.

    If you log in on their website and select submitted applications it states there that the job has been applied for.

    I’ve not heard anything either. Best thing to do is email

    No matter what time of day you call- no one picks up and you have to leave a message....

    I’d be taking a significant drop in pay so it’s all about conditions for me if I were successful.

    I thought virgin's conditions were pretty poor which is what puts me off, they are on good money for a reason. You can't usually have both.
    As a pay cut goes I assume you're talking about the starting rate ?

    Baseline is only just above my TOC but with extras I get it would still be a drop, however I would prefer making 14 stops a day compared to my current 114
    That is better conditions in my eyes!

    I called the recruitment line today. No answer but a recorded message saying it takes 4-6 weeks to get an email reply. I submitted 5 weeks ago so will give it another couple of weeks.

    Thanks for your reply.

    No one ever answers that number! I need to check when I applied, I thin it was also around 5 weeks ago.

    What is considered missing a station? Stopping too far from the platform or just completely driving it pass the station at line speed? Feel bad for your mate, I do feel VT is probably one of the most difficult TOC’s to become a driver for.
