Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's far closer to a long distance bus driver, although if you multiply people travelling by likelihood of an accident, the bus driver has more responsibility and a more exacting job. Not that he gets paid as much or retires at 50...

Surely figuring in likelyhood of an accident is dubious at best, if not interlectually dishonest. If a train driver is better trained or more skilled and so has less accidents then surely he deserves to be better paid, rather than it be decided that he is worth less.

As for deciding the bus driver has more responsibility, I've yet to see the Bus that carries 2 to 3 hundred pssengers. plus if one driver runs slowly, he can wreck the timetables of the whole network.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
