      that's ironic. Thats the one I'm least pleased with as I ended up having to rely on quite a few donations from others. Years ago when I didn't have acess to a scanner I lent a friend a photo album that had a lot of photos taken in South Western England in including Swindon, Chippenham, etc and he lost it.

    Can you please advise how you post a picture? I'm working abroad and next to a busy station. Just thought I'd post one to see if anyone can guess the location!

    Hi Gus,
    Guardian’s Libby Brooks seems to have missed her train in Elgin. She lives in Glasgow & is now asking
    “Where’s good for a coffee and a heat-up in Elgin? Missed my train and can’t get back to glasgow for another few hours. Yours, an ordinary voter”
    @libby_brooks on twitter.
    Never thought I would be using it in this way.
    Can you help her out?
    Cheers,
    —-Peter.

      Oops, just picked this up - she has probably caught another train by now!

    Hi George,
    After the assessment day you’ll have an email to say whether you have got a final interview or not. If successful at interview you are offered employment as long as you pass the medical.
    Hope this helps!

      Hi KLL94 and thankyou for the reply, do you know what the interview consists of?
      With the medical, normal things like drugs, alcohol blood pressure etc?

    Hi just to answer your question I applied for a conductor Manchester position at the end of July had my interview on the 24th September which I passed and then I’ve just been given a medical on the 29th October. After speaking to the conductor manager he said that they are looking to get people on courses starting in January so I’m assuming I’ll be on one of those. I hope that helps you.

    Hello,

    I hope you don't mine me messaging you. I saw your post about taking sertraline and having a medical. May i ask if it was an issue? I have a history of taking sertraline (Not on it now), but worried it will impact my medical having a history of depression.

    Thank you
