A day as a WCE Engineer

Post by bastian440 » Fri May 05, 2017 5:57 pm


I have been wondering for some time, how a day as an engineer for West Coast Express in the Vancouver Area looks like.
This commuter rail service runs only in the peak time. In the morning, all trains run from Mission to Vancouver Waterfront and in the evening back to Mission.
That means, engineers drive the trains to Vancouver and only after several hours back to Mission. What do they do in the meantime?

Thank you in advance.
