About this submission
'Loco' is a human story exploring the world of a train driver. When there is an incident on the tracks, a suicide, the train driver is often the last person to be thought of, they are the forgotten victim. The noise of impact, the horrific sight, literally seeing a person in their last second of life. Such is the trauma that most train drivers will endure, and yet their voice is not heard. In my research I came across shocking stories of PTSD suffered by these drivers, and the unfortunate news that support funding was set to be cut.
