“Doors are closed, we are good to go!”
When I was a kid, I wished to be a train machinist.
One of the reasons is because train is so cool!
Now? Not so much.
Not because I now think train machinist is a boring job, or train is not so cool anymore.
I still think highly of them.
It’s because I don’t believe I have enough attention-span to run that massive thing.
It’s hard work and requires full attention and super focus. Don’t forget that the passengers’ lives are in your hand. People’s lives may be at stake if you lack of focus for just a split of second.
I admire those who have the ability to become good train machinist.
