This year I hope to take a couple trips to Europe and I am looking for mechanical people to talk shop with. I am a mechanical instructor for a class 1 railroad in the usa; I develop and provide training to our trainers and directly to the Carmen. I worked as a Carmen for 17 years before I got this position.
I am interested in learning how the railroads in Europe do things, and would love to find a few people doing the same job, instructors or Carmen. It would be even better if I could arrange a visit while in Europe, of course I would love to have them visit me in Chicago. Does anyone know of people interested in this sort of thing?
