NBRU leaflet casts train drivers in a bad light 

Fr Michael Commane - The Way I See It It's a relief that the rail stoppages have been suspended. I can remember when Tom Darby set up the National Busmen's Union in 1963, which later expanded to include rail workers and is now the National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU). Over the years I have got to know a number of locomotive drivers. There is a long and proud history in Ireland of the men, and now women, who drive our trains. In the days of steam they did tough and dirty jobs.
