If only it was that easy
2 friends that drive for TFL - it is....
Tfl is underground, its not driving overground trains.
Lots of similarities but still different jobs.
If its that easy why are you not doing it then?

You wanna see the sh!t rolling stock in the south west, hand me downs from other parts of the country, overcrowded (I know we're not unique in that).
