Goods transport by train will become increasingly more important in the future. It is far less detrimental to the environment and mobility than road transport. Furthermore, it is often safer and more efficient.

Lineas is one of the largest European private enterprises in the area of goods transport by rail.
We therefore believe that it is our responsibility to convince companies to opt for the modal shift away from the road towards more goods by rail.

We carry out that ambitious task with the best products, innovative services, a large fleet and a great deal of passion and input for our customers. We want to grow and make a real difference on an international scale.


Why are we looking for train drivers?
Because we are expanding. Not just a little expansion either. We are working for more and more customers, on more and more routes and with trains that are becoming longer all the time. Motivated and technically-minded train drivers are crucial to keep our business running.

What does that mean in practice?
You drive your train. That starts with inspecting the locomotive and carrying out tests and braking trials. And it ends with courteous, friendly communication with the customer. Furthermore, when you are on the move, you are responsible for everything that happens with the train. From the locomotive down to the final wagon.

Do you have what it takes for for this job?
In this job, you need a sense of responsibility and autonomy. It is also important to be able to withstand stress to take the right decisions at important times (together with your colleagues in the control room, of course). Technical know-how is also important.

  • VBO / VMBO (initial professional education / lower secondary professional education) diploma​•    Train driver’s proficiency certificate for goods transport (European licence B2)
  • Car driving licence B
  • Knowledge of the Dutch rail network 
  • Knowledge of German or French (level B1, enough to cope at stations)
  • You like the idea of working with automated systems and computers
  • Willingness to undergo a psychological and medical examination


Our offer?
We make sure that you have what you need for the job. Modern safety clothing, modern locomotives, competent colleagues in the control room ... Which means you can concentrate on what you are good at: driving our trains safely from A to B.
You will receive an employee contract, earn a good salary with bonuses, and enjoy quite a few attractive fringe benefits:

  • Smartphone and tablet
  • Car with fuel agency card
  • Bonuses
  • Membership of the Railways Pension Fund
