Seems a little strange at first, seeing trains pass through York that you have nothing to do with, or perhaps signalling a train on Sheffields patch and an hour later it reappears in York. Bit strang just not been able to see Sheffield any more, and whats going on locally there.

Im not busy personally, didn't know about it till you posted that. Dronfield is a hot-spot (for want of a better word) for such things. Fast bit of track, and drivers don't get much visibility because of the corner.

Hi Andy: I will be a Relief Signaller working Nairn - Forres - Elgin (assuming Signalling School goes OK of course).

I'm an old bu**er - 55 next January - ex Forces Aircrew/Merchant Navy Navigator.

Left Forces because of Defence Cuts in 2012; left Merchant Navy for Signalling to help out at home with my elderly mum - sadly too late but I will crack on with Signalling. Seem a good bunch...so far! :D

Sorry to hear about your mum. Seems like a good group so far on the course I'm sure we will all pass. I'm looking forward to a decent career again not just a job

I'm travelling Monday :( would have preferred Sunday because otherwise I'm getting in at 8.48 and have to lug my case around and then store it somewhere until I can check in after lessons

They have a luggage room at the training centre you can leave your case in.

Are either or you getting any revision done, or has the football distracted you? (I'm completely distracted currently watching dirty Wales play hehe)

I had a weeks induction got to pull some levers and send some bells. Lots of bells to learn. I'm quite excited now can't wait to start. I probably won't be saying that tommorow after 2 hours on the train and all day in class lol
