I note that Craig Dewick outlined the current arrangements being followed. 
What mightn't have been clear is that "you have to be in it to win it" ie if 
they take anybody, the first choice is from existing employees. This probably 
means station staff etc., so if you seriously want a driving job you probably 
need to seek any railway job first.
