No shortage of experience


I was bemused by the article about Railtrack's quest for engineers (NCE 24 January).

I joined BR's civil engineering department after graduating from Imperial College in 1969, eventually taking redundancy in 1995, but subsequently working full - then part-time on an agency basis for Railtrack.

The Railtrack project on which I was last working was completed last year and since August I have sent CVs to several relevant departments within Railtrack southern zone, without the pleasure of a single reply.
