There are two types of drives which specialize in operating engines, buses and other vehicles.
Engine Drivers[edit | edit source]
The engine drivers (generally known as engineers in the US narration) drive and maintain the engines, and along with the firemen, keep the engine in control and provide a voice of reason when an engine is being difficult.
Uniform[edit | edit source]
A North Western Railway steam engine driver's uniform consists of dark blue trousers, a black tie, a white shirt with a blue jacket with light blue accents over it and a blue peaked cap. This dress code is the same for drivers on the Arlesdale Railway.
Diesel engine drivers wear a similar, though less formal, uniform, with theVicarstown Dieselworks logo on the jacket and a brown cap.
The drivers on the Skarloey Railway wear the same outfits, but in grey instead of blue.
