The person we in the States refer to as an "engineer" is generally described as an "engine driver" elsewhere around the globe. But I suspect that a U.S. engineer would feel right at home on the seatbox of New Zealand aB608.
The trim little 3'6" gauge Pacific is seen here hurrying northward towards Palmerston North on an excursion in April 2017.
It's interesting that even though the New Zealand railways operate left-hand, the driver is located on the right side of the cab as is the case here in the U.S. Or perhaps a better way to put it is that even though our railroads are right-hand, the engineer sits on the right hand side, the opposite of the position in our autos and trucks.
