A recruitment campaign aims to attract more women to the male-dominated world of driving trains.
Eva Brodie started her training with First ScotRail in 2002
First ScotRail is proactively encouraging women to apply to be train drivers and earn more than £30,000 after training and probation.
The firm has 900 drivers of which 879 are male. It said it was keen to make its workforce as diverse as possible.
Geography graduate and train driver Eva Brodie, 27, from Ayr, said: "There's a real buzz to it."
First ScotRail said the role of a train driver was "highly-skilled and intellectually challenging".
Ms Brodie said she had no regrets about her career choice.
She added: "It was a wise choice.
"I particularly like the flexibility it offers.
"There's no doubt the role is very much open to women, which I welcome and recommend."
The recruitment campaign, which has union backing, will also target ethnic minorities.
