Now I hope that this haven't been previously posted but if you guys currently follow the public transport in Canada like I do, you probably noticed that GO transit has new Bombardier crews for their equipment on The majority of their lines. What i would like to know if possible, how do you get hired by bombardier to become a train engineer? Because that's really something I wanna do. Here in Montreal we have AMT and i love AMT but you have to work with freight trains (which I don't mind) al tough I wanna eventually drive commuter trains but then again in CN or CP, you're not guaranteed to ever get a place on Commuter trains because it's a position for high seniority. Anyways if they don't get hired off as engineers first, what are they before that? Crews that participate in the construction of the trains? I really would like to know. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
