Happy New Year. I wish you all all the best. (And yes, that does make sense grammatically ;))

I'll be old enough to start driving lessons in 9 months - now there's a scary thought for you!

Happy new year everyone.

Happy new year everyone!

What was the best meet of 2006 then? As with 2005, it's a very tough choice, but I guess it has to be one of the trips to Fort William, although I really don't know which one I'd pick.

It has been a very sad year in a way, with the demise of the Rhmney 37s, West Coast 87s, Fort William 37s, etc. But at least we made the most of it, and in many ways it was a good year for rail enthusiasts, with the return of Class 50s on regular schedules services for the first time since the early/mid 1990s.

I think in 2007 I will probably go on more railtours, and maybe more preserved lines. Hopefully it will be just as good as 2006!

That's my resolution (if you can call it that!) - to make the most of it. Since the middle of last year I have gone from going on most meets to very few meets!

Happy new year everyone! I've got some resolutions too, try and do more railtours with classic traction and goto more events at preserved lines. NVR event in March sounds good enough for me, 3 class 56s! BRING IT ON!

Well my start of the New year sums up the rest in style.

Unknown of what happened on the night, woke up in Gemma's bed next to her and Ellie, wide awake. Then not long got home. :D

EDIT: My Resolution will be probably never miss a chance.

Ah cummon though, it's not even been a day! You really think you can get more than 100? I don't. I'm way more of a pimp than you though, seriously.

Guess I'd better start putting my ad back up in telephone boxes... :p (Please don't take that seriously anyone :))

Febuary: [half term]
March:
April:Fflint[1]
May:Abingdon[depends]
June:Kemble[depends]
July: Fairford[at least 2]
Haven't planned any further.

Hummm knock off a zero then, so 10,20, so on...

Happy New Year everyone! <D
Well, I may be about 15 hours late for it, but "better late than never" I guess! 8-)
(Or if BR was still going: "Better never than late!" :toothy10:)

I have a few new years resolutions/aims as well:
  • Restore my Spirit to what it was a couple of years ago.
    (Anyone who knew me in 2002 would know what I'm talking about! <()
  • Untangle my life and get it moving in the right direction.
    (Preferably North along the WCML at 500mph or more! <D)
  • Short term: Get off of my fat a$$ and the D.o.S.S benefits, and get a job - Preferably with a local TOC.
  • Mid term: Pass my driving test (No, my railway one! :grin:) and get a position driving 159s from Waterloo to Exeter in the space of an hour! 8-)
  • Long term: Bring about a revival of the APT - Proving that not only is it faster than a Pendodildo and can take corners quicker, but unlike the Pendodildo (And other Alstom rolling stock that has a nasty habit of falling apart an hour after manufacture!) doesn't require a £20 billion upgrade to the WCML to allow it to run at it's optimum 300mph! <D

Farewell, and happy new year 2007CR! <D
