    He's around answering questions for a short while longer.

    Some of you may be interested in what he says! :D

    EDIT- he's gone now but if you look back between 1130-1230 you'll see his responses etc marked with '^CG'.

    Maybe showing my ignorance here, but where did he end up after Virgin XC? I'll be surprised if he didn't get taken on by another TOC as he did a fantastic job with Virgin.

    What fantastic job would that be then ?
    My over riding memory on him was having him standing on the platform at New Street on the last day of Virgin XC operations meeting all the XC trains arriving and approaching the train crew with a big tin of Quality Street thanking us for our hard work and dedication and offering us a sweet. Needless to say not all saw this as an appropriate gesture

    Got a lot of time for Chris Gibb, I worked under him back in the 1990s on Wales & West. Whenever he got on a train he would make a point of announcing himself and walking through the train to speak to passengers.

    A man who talks the talk but also walks the walk.

    I've got more time for CG than most modern TOC senior management.

    Chris is never the bloke /manager to take his name badge off and hide from problems.

    Out there , backing the staff and talking to the customers -at all times , good and bad.
