I'm a researcher at a television company and we're looking into interviewing a self-identifying train enthusiast on camera for a new programme that we're developing. The idea is that the show investigates modern ways of living, and how to survive in a world where we're all tasked with demanding, ever-extending, working hours and growing demands on our time.
Our presenter has recently come to us and said that he thinks train enthusiasts can be sued as a great example of those with a hobby/lifestyle that is shunned by large sections of the public but that actually acts as an antidote to the modern chaos, and we'd love to have our presenter talk to a train enthusiast in person to demonstrate & explore this.
Do get in touch if you'd like to take part or know anybody who we could contact, and I'm always available to answer any questions you may have.
That would be a better idea, you know it makes sense
Yeah, bit of a random find. For me the most surprising thing was seeing that they fitted airline seats to the Mark 2s, honestly never knew that that happened. I presume they were only ones to do so (VXC was all tables/seats of 4), but still a bit different!
"I've only seen 3 Voyagers use the route through the station, and they were all on the same day (April 1st 2012), in about 6 visits to the station."
That probably kind of was an April Fool's joke

43186 leading the 9:4x Penzance - pad today, just seen departing Exeter at 12:50. Not sure when it comes back, if it comes back down to Devon it won't be on the train we plan to do (15:30 PAD -PLYD). Next stop Taunton at around 13:20. Just thought I'd let you know
Hi Temple Meads, thank you for completing the survey.
Is there any chance that you could email me (link provided in the questionnaire) if you'd like a copy of the summary report. Im planning to distribute this by email
