What Yorkie said - I've seen my trains listed in trip reports, which I always enjoy reading in any case.How do you know who they are, if they don't know you, so presumably you haven't met socially previously?
Been alternating between TM and Parkway for the last 6 months as its same distance really to where Im going but traffic dependant in Bristol.I haven't been working many Paddington - Bristol Temple Meads trains lately. Just the way the rosters work.
I've been on a few Paddington to Newport trains lately. I'm going up again next Thursday - I'll try to make the RailUK badge that's pinned to the back of my backpack obvious. But don't expect a carnation!I haven't been working many Paddington - Bristol Temple Meads trains lately. Just the way the rosters work.
Uh! I knew that was you! I'm slightly surprised you remember that too, it was in July 2015! I would have said hello but decided not to because I wasn't sure if that would interfere with what you reference in the second part of your post.What Yorkie said - I've seen my trains listed in trip reports, which I always enjoy reading in any case.
Another way is Facebook - I am friends with a few members of the forum so when they post pictures up of meets and such they sometimes include user names etc - for example I know I saw Starmill's ticket on a Crewe - Derby train some time ago when he was doing some kind of rover as his previous identity gave his name away somewhat, not to mention rovers being comparatively uncommon so they make me pay slightly more attention! I've also gripped Haydn before as he's something of a regular on our depot's trains so it basically makes it inevitable that we will cross paths from time to time. I have no idea how obvious I am though!
I've also been lurking around rather longer than my register date might suggest so I remember an era when people posted pictures up of each other rather more than they do now.
