1/2 term doesn't exist for me, but plans exist along the lines of going to Minehead this weekend (Friday to Monday to be precise). And before anyone asks, no, I am not going to Pizza Hut. Unless my axe fits into my bag...:lol:

Other than that, no plans. Might do some bus bashing when I'm down there, will see what happens. Hoping for some new Voyager bashes and my last photos of Wessex Trains units in their current colours before Barbie-ised.

I plan to get wasted as long as I'm not working more dammed overtime.

I also aim not to loose either of my sets of keys this time either. Or to end up being caught by the old bill sat in a crane cab (don't ask
)

I'll be going to the East lancs in the half term, as there are mid-week running timetables from April to October. :)

Im going to try to get to the ELR if I can. And possibly (if i got enough cash after the Metrolink fare to Bury that is) go up to newcastle for a day on the Metro.
At least my ICT coursework should be kinda out the way, leaving room for that wonderful AS level revision!!

Oh, half term ain't here yet? Must be a s**t load of truants around the country yesterday and today then, the amount I saw around. Filling up all of the trains, the HST on Friday was packed full in SC, the Voyager up yesterday was full and had us standing in 60703 of 220003 (on a Plymouth/Penzance to Glasgow Central via the WCML service, DREADFUL fleet utilisation!) from 1251 (booked time of departure from Taunton) to 1327 (when we eventually landed in BTM), 36 minutes! All of SC saw people standing up on that Voyager, which is insanely annoying!

Plans for half-term here now will involve completely nothing interesting, except perhaps finding out times of freight in Hereford so I know when to go for it, rather than the hit and miss way I do it now, although scoring 66552 on Monday was an excellent way to end the trip, nice and unexpected bonus! Hoping the new job offer I got turns out positively for me, otherwise I daresay I'll simply be on the forums and looking for new jobs still. It's three months on Saturday since I last worked, 2 if you count the ballast shovelling at Coventry!

Lots of schools were closed today due to industrial action. Only the beancounters and labtechs walked out here though :(.

joea1, that means I have to wait until shops near here actually sell Freightmaster and more so the current one, which is near impossible to find around here! I'd do the online one, but that's prohibitively expensive for me. Plus it's not too useful having an online Freightmaster subscription when you're at the lineside or otherwise out and about and you need to check the times or other details of a freight movement.

Nah, I'll find some other way to get freight times for Hereford.

Get a nice Nokia mobile and you can check online while you're on the move! Also, online is updated regularly. I don't think FM is sold in shops :(

P.S You get a lot of 60s don't you ;)
