I Am now getting back into it and am purchasing Newtown Ststion Travel on the current owners retirement at the end of March. It has Retail Agents Licesnse from ATW. This started off when Peter said to be last November I'm retiring next year do you want to buy the business?
Was running a shop with my wife which was not doing well. Chatting to a friend in the cafe one day and he told me there was a signaller's post going and suggested I apply. Thought I was too old 53, but filled the forms in, went for all the tests in London 2 weeks later, had my interview with the LOM the next day, started work 2 weeks later and was at Leeds signalling school the week after that.
All done and dusted in just 5 weeks!
Unfortunately medically dismissed at the New Year due to a wrist injury.
Good to hear, Gareth!!
Can it be broadcast?
How long were you a qualified signaller for?
Certainly its public knowledge important thing is that it's continuing trading on Peters retirement a lot of folk have been worried about it closing down at the end of March. He's 70 would you believe!
Plus Ive given up a "cushy public sector job with a gold plated pension" as some would have it.
