    Yep that is strange!

    Sounds like I may not get much else for now so may bite the bullet and submit my notice!

    If you’ve signed the contract you’ve got the job. I think I may even have given mine in when I received my formal offer, as that’s typically when they will start to approach referees.

    I’ll keep an eye out for you on the tracks at North Somerset Jn later. That’s what I did on my PTS course anyway.
