Trains And Careers

There are still a few train trips I plan to take at some point this year, which I could try and do during the coming TAFE holidays. I plan to travel up the Upfield line and visit Macaulay station, which is, correct me if I'm wrong, an underground station. I also plan to visit Box Hill for the same reason, and travel down the Alamein and Glen Waverly lines on the same day. I also plan to travel up to Shepparton via a diesel train.

 

I'm also considering getting a job at V/Line, the company in charge of diesel trains and buses (called coaches) outside Melbourne's Metropolitan area. I don't know where, but hopefully I can find out where I might fit.

Sounds like you have some good plans for the year! I really like trains. Even though I'm almost 21, I still haven't gotten a driver's license, and since my last college was about eight hours from where I live anyway, it was usually convenient during breaks to take the train either all the way to where my parents could pick me up to take me home or to stay with relatives in geographically closer areas in New England.

 

Last Spring I did a lot of train travel over Spring Break. Since I live in Virginia, I stayed home over break, but every morning for about a week I would take the commuter train to Washington, D.C. and then take the D.C. Metro to various museums and other attractions there. It was a very fun vacation, and a fairly inexpensive one at that!

 

Hope you can find a job that really suits you!

Sounds like a lot of fun! :P

 

As you may have noticed from past entries as well as this one, I usually do train trips just to go on trains, or in some cases, to go down lines I've never been down before, just for a change. I live at the end of one of the longest lines on our railway, so train trips down my line tend to get boring faster than if I were to live closer to the city.
