New profile posts

I'm starting to lose a lot of interest in trains, to be honest.

Probably because I haven't been on them for so long, and hardly any of the new ones actually interest me anyway.

It wouldn't really be a pub quiz without, would it :p

I might have been the designated driver! If I had an actual pub to go to, and a car to get there in.
Including the Q&G section I've got 16,538 posts, apparently.

How did you find out the Q&G post count since the new style XenForo system came recently on line? There used to be a profile page heading called "Areas" which showed the exact numbers of postings that you had made in every section forum of the website, but like many other items, that has vanished during the last website upgrade.

I did it manually; hovering over the icon for each thread I'd posted in, which revealed my post count for that thread, and added them up.
Does anyone remember the pub days?
Great days...

My name was supposed to be ''Tetsudo Boy''. IDK why i did that typo but i guess it's understandable.

Hey Matty,

Just saw your post about the interview - stay positive i'm sure you did great!

If you don't mind me asking, roughly how many questions were asked? I'm just trying to plan approx how much time i will have to answer per question. Thank you! :)
Hi Amanda,
I hope you and your family are safe.
My brother's been shortlisted for Train Manager at St Pancras.
The EMR website is very sketchy on info regarding the interview process and the different stages. I've looked over your previous posts but was hoping for more on your experience going through the interview processes.
The best of luck to all your upcoming interview and hoping you stay safe.

Hi there, it's good to hear from someone else starting in Rugby. I'm looking forward to getting started too, hoping training won't be delayed too long. Do you live in the Rugby area already?

I live in northants, about 25 minute drive from the SCC, i work at Westwood in Coventry, my office is next door to a signalling training room. There is a lady there training to deliver the IST, we got talking and it looks like she will be delivering our training when she is qualified... at least that was the plan, things within NR training are changing by the day...

Yes with everything going on at the moment it's all a bit up in the air just now. Paul said there may be a course running in June but he'll be in touch if/when confirmed.

Carrie let me know if you hear further news about the trainee driver talent pool and i will also let you know if i hear anything. probably a long wait for us now. they mentioned to me they hadn't taken on trainee drivers since 1994 so are expecting a lot of retirees soon and that its a ageing pool of drivers at plymouth and they wanted a younger work force.
