      Hi dk

      I managed 53 years before I retired. Started my railway career at Norwich S&T in 1964, spent a lot of time around that area but I've not been back there for a few years so my knowledge of what's been done is not too good.
      One of my jobs years ago was to re-balance the tablets in the two tablet machines at Reedham and Breydon Junctions.

        Hello mate

        Breydon is a particular favourite of mine as moved to the Suspension Tavern pub opp Vauxhall Stn in 76 & remember it up to its abolition in Nov 77. Was slowly falling backwards.

      Hi dk - do you have any idea what a freight on Fridays (around lunchtime) on the Norwich-Ely line (heading west) might be? My mother saw it on her way to the supermarket on the 27th March, describing the wagons as off-white and without logos. From her description of the shape, I suspect they're short wheelbased covhops of some type. She didn't see the loco (she was checking her rear view mirror as she was braking and missed it), so I don't know the livery.

      Cheers.

      Hi dk1
      I am 24 of years of age and looking for a trainee train position hopefully somewhere in the east. I am located in around Cambridge. I believe my CV is almost complete however I am currently doing a Health and safety course to add to the CV, I understand TOC'S are very hot on safety so hopefully this works in my favour. I am already a HGV driver.
      I see your already quite an accomplished Train Driver and I would really like to know if you could offer any good sound advice which possibly may help my CV be pushed to the front of the queue in terms of selection. I currently dont work for a train company so my application would be external. I have attended the course on How to become a train driver and they offered good advice but it was mainly on the application process and the interview etc. Currently right now I am just constantly checking TOC'S for vacancies for trainee train drivers, I do welcome any advice you could possibly pass on.
