As ever great photos that give us an insight to what you are doing. You have mentioned the meeting in London twice is it something special one wonders.

 

Keep up the great work.

Nothing spectacular, just a meeting to see how one of my existing competencies can be utilised

That is "S7" stock not a stock! Hope you had a good time in London.

my train on the left with 66720

C83ED21D-A34F-49CB-97DC-0151DC2D0537.jpg

 

and this morning at Hednesford Having had the empty wagons filled with spoil from the drainage work being done

23768165-E308-41B2-BAA8-286DD8E78BA2.jpg

 

and the train behind with building and drainage materials in, the work looks to involve installing pipe work in the 6ft, no tracks have been disturbed or lifted

back there tonight to take a train off site to crewe then take the 3 locos back to bescot light engine

 

busy week next week, should have been a week of rest days but have ended up with an MOD on Monday night then a week working out of hither green depot traction conducting on the class 37 and DBSO to Hastings, Eastbourne, Bognor, Brighton, Seaford etc as I did a few months back, should be an interesting week

And the 2nd bit, MOD to fenny Compton, they let me run early to minimise delays as it was diverted via nuneaton and Coventry, made it to fenny nearly 2 1/2 hours early!

Were those flats bringing up the rear empty?

 

Would this traffic have originated at Longtown or further afield?

 

Was Kineton able to receive you at that hour?

 

TIA

I'd love your Job Big Jim,,, how many years training did you do to get to where you are today bud...? and is there anymore training to be any higher in what you do...? without getting into management and coming away from Trains that is... Hmmm

 

Regards

Jamie

nice easy day tomorrow travelling down to lodge in Greenwich ready for the IM job along the south coast 

 

 

 

Are you please able to explain the south coast job? If it's west of Brighton we get little relief from 377's and 313's (and the couple of 700's) !  Thanks.

I’m only on board to conduct the traction but the route is as below if that’s of any use to work out where the heck I’m going!

tomorrow will be of more interest to you as we are west of Brighton

Had a day to myself today so went into the west end to see a matinee show, decided to have an adventure getting there though as I had plenty of time

Where I caught the DLR to bank

sat at the front so i could pretend to be a train driver

I then caught the Waterloo and city back over to waterloo

Then a bus to the west end, saw ‘everybody’s talking about Jamie’ which was brilliant, went back and had a kip and now off to higher green to get the train ready
