      I've felt that way for a while TBH. As someone said to me, work is the curse of the modelling classes!

      Always did my best to keep the "snooker" reference to a minimum when I was on...(got to get a red before any other colour!)

      Thank you both, as the politicians say "I'm retiring to spend more time with my family er..hobbies"

  5. Well, after 39 years in the signalling grades, I've triggered my own article 50. Hoping for a smooth B.R.Exit in the next few weeks!

      Thanks all! More time to build signals (and restore buses) but not play signalman! Yes, seen some good times but it's been a long time since the best times. I did have a "wobble" about it a few weeks ago CK, but I'm now sure I won't regret it. Time to move on to new stuff!

      Oh yes indeed. Probably with one of those silly posh forky-knifey things. And with a cup of coffee too.

  9. 11.46 LLJ to HHD not loco-hauled. Disappointing.

  10. Extra portion of Whitworths stuffing anyone?

  11. Some say that the best way of learning is making mistakes. By that argument I should know everything after almost three score years and ten so why do I keep making them?

      because the one thing you learn from experience is that you learn **** all from experience (Fred Cotterell SVR loco driver 1985!)

  17. Rainy out, incoming work delayed, any suggestions to avoid doing the hoovering?

  18. Well, just sent off for my PCV license forms. Got to give it a go!

    1. Jon Fitness

      As far as I understand it, I can carry up to 8 passengers as long as it's not for hire or reward and the vehicle can be a maximum 7.5 tons. I think 122 is somewhat more than 8 tons and has 74 seats. The museums I am involved with organise vintage running days where they give free rides on the old buses but they insist all drivers be PCV qualified even if they don't need to be. It's probably for the best just in case of any incidents. I don't think any driver CPCs are required...

  20. Facebook? Wastebook more like. Resisted the temptation to join for years then stupidly gave in 4 days ago. 4 days later and I've got my password wrong and I'm locked out and they want my life story emailed to them to log back in. Not happening. I should have stayed away from it!

      so many things seem to default to a facebook page nowadays. 4 days in, loads of people from my past have said hello etc, and it all started to get complicated and before I learnt my way round it, it all went T/U. Life's too short methinks!

      I thought it better to spell the first word correctly rather than run the risk of arrest by the spelling police!
