Adelaide Metro remembers the life of Mr Rob Dale, a well-respected train driver who provided 31 years of service to the SA public sector. He sadly passed away on Friday at the young age of 49.Adelaide Metro is committed to the wellbeing of its staff and will support a large number of train drivers to attend today’s funeral service and remember the life of their much-loved colleague.
