In just over one year Israel might have her first female "train driver."
Way back when I was a kid in Chicago we used to say engineer or locomotive engineer (we're talking coal-burning steam engines!).
Israel Railways launched a TV advertising campaign to attract female and male candidates for a new and streamlined one-year training course for passenger train drivers.
See their one-minute video!
Hundreds of men and about 20 women applied for the 36 places.
It sounds like fun. Would you like to try?
I have lots of posts about our trains.
And this post shows the interior of the Tel Aviv-to-Jerusalem train.
