You can do my Stud Farm Quarry to Willesden job tomorrow night if you like and I'll stay at home! I'll even throw in a copy of the ASLEF Journal so you can use it to mop up the rainwater as it seeps in through the window rubbers at the bottom of the screen...!Class 66. Longest Freightliner route.
Thank Christ 14X are banned on the Main Line South of Crewe...I'd love to drive a 142 and turn up at somewhere like Leighton Buzzard or Tring with it in the morning peak. Might make one or two people look up from their phones.
It'll never happen but I'd like to have had a go at the APT and see the differences with my current traction.
