Seems a bit excessive. Surely they could just select a subsection of them

I’m sure you’d be among the first to complain when a train is cancelled
because all of the trained drivers are either being used or unavailable,
while drivers not trained on 710s are available.

Thats just down to rostering. Do you think every pilot in every airline is
trained on every single type of plane they fly?

Quite why different trains require in depth training anyway is a mystery to me.
They only go forwards and backwards. And afternoon to learn the controls and
where the fuses are, done.
