I have also loved to be a train driver.  How do you start a career like this?

Hi Eddy, suggest you keep an eye on the Careers pages of the Freight Train company websites to see if they are recruiting trainee drivers. Currently Freightliner is only recruiting qualified drivers but the situation could change so worth keeping a look out.
