    Has anyone one here completed a university degree then decided afterwards to become a train driver instead of pursuing a career related to their degree? I am 21 and in my second year of uni, I'm definitely going to finish my degree first but I'm considering applying for a trainee train driver position after I graduate. I like the sound of the potential salary along with the job description since I prefer working in solitude most of the time, I can maintain focus for long periods of time, I don't drink alcohol at all or use illegal drugs, I can handle shift work, I have decent customer service skills from jobs I have worked in the past, I have a lot of patience and can remain calm in stressful situations, my reactions are pretty quick and I have good hand eye co-ordination from years of doing martial arts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
