Ask Mr. Satoguchi, a former driver

What are your concerns about riding the train?
I'm curious about the driver's behavior and the equipment on the cab.

I'm curious about the driver's seat, but I only glance at it so as not to put strange pressure on the driver.When you get on the train, please check what is done for "safety".

What is your most memorable experience as a driver?
I remember how I dealt with problems when they arose.

I was impressed by the scene of an irregular situation, such as when I saw a person left behind at a railroad crossing and sent out a protective radio to prevent an accident.When driving, I always try to put safety first.

What is your favorite train line?
This is the Chikuho Main Line in Fukuoka, where I was born.

The Chikuho Main Line was used to transport coal in the past, and when you board the train, you can reminisce about the past from the spacious station premises and the remains of the branch line.The ekiben "Kashiwameshi" at Orio Station is also excellent!Some sections are operated by electric storage battery trains (commonly known as electric trains).

What kind of classes do you have in mind?
Based on my experience at a railway company, I will guide you so that you can become an immediate force.

Based on my experience, I teach not only railway knowledge but also etiquette and mental attitude unique to the industry in an easy-to-understand manner so that they can be immediately ready to work after employment.Let's do our best together at TORAJAL, aiming to be a respectable railroad worker!
