I transferred to Picton in 1994 following the closure of Westrail's District Engineers office in Narrogin.
My current role as Signal Maintainer sees me working as part of a two person work team maintaining level crossing infrastructure, point machines, track circuits and associated signalling across the South West and Great Southern on a daily basis, then on 24 hour call for a week every month.
As a hands on, outdoor, pragmatic person I feel suited to the task and genuinely enjoy more days than the ones I don't.
Arc Infrastructure has, in my opinion, undoubtedly been the best operators of the network and has a genuine care for the network and its people. With my 30 years rail career entering the "twilight" stage of my life, I am excited for the change to Arc Infrastructure, and very impressed with our progressive management style. I feel sure that my wife and I will continue to reach our personal goals and ambitions.
