Found the example.

On the subject, why is grey so popular? Transrail, EWS, Railfreight, EPS and Freighliner (at least) all have grey locos!

Cos BR had them painted like that AFAIK. They just never repainted the majority of them into their own colours!!

The two tone grey was the standard colour scheme for sectorisation of frieght, with different logos for each sector.

Hence:

Coal


Construction

etc etc

I use cos as it's a habit, though it's perfectly understandable as well. It's basically the only "text" word thing I use (other than PMSL/ROFL etc, which on forums such as this is relatively uncommon) so I will politely ask, where's the problem?

Now please.. back on topic.. :roll:

This thread will not turn into a flaming thread, so settle your dispute via PM, MSN or whatever please.

Some of you really need a hobby, you must have a lot of time on your hands to have an argument over the use of the word "cos". It's SO SAD it's totally unbelievable. Why are you so touchy? It's atrocious to be honest. Some of you can pick a fight over the tiniest of things, which is stupid. GET A LIFE!

TBH, if we're not bothered, don't complain. "cos" is fine, it is normal when we speak, short version of "because"!
