Someone needs to bar me from this forum when I've got assignments due. I open my laptop to type essays and instead spend the time reading Traction & Rolling Stock :D
How to turn someone who's pro nationalised health services into someone who wants them all privatised:

twatter employees not actually being inclusive and making disparaging remarks about the disabled? Colour me suprised...
I can only assume that the UK is only getting so many Eurovision points because they want us to pay for it next year.

Amused to see a man in a National Rail arrows logo hoodie filling his car at Cardiff big Tesco. Someone’s excited for GBR ahaha

Would you mind confirming which TOCs are free travel, and if it’s 75% off with everyone else?

Hello, it’s probably worth noting that @Steve. hasn’t logged onto the forum since 2016. They’re unlikely to see your question, you may find the Careers section of the forum helpful if you haven’t already seen this.

Had the pleasure of visiting the Széchenyi Thermal Pools in Budapest today. 38° Water temperature outside!! Hotter than a bath, blissful. Would highly recommend.

The 47s in particular, even compared to the Peaks, seemed to throw out copious amounts of clag.

Because they are utter beasts, of course ;)

(I would have a 47 as my profile pic, but I struggled to find one that worked.)

Depends on who you're asking ofc. ;)

And the latter depends on what kind of 47 pic you wanna use (livery, era, clag or no clag, type of train being hauled etc). A few mid-70s pics here, though they may be too large to use for profile pics lol
I noticed you locked the thread but my query was about announcements - so perhaps if anyone has any information the thread should be unlocked. Thanks

Hi there, although I have now retired, the attached is a commonly used 12 hour roster for a 24/7 position (This was in a PSB), but gives an idea, and it is quite liked by those that work it.
But HR don't like it as there a 4 nights, they would rather there was only 2 then a rest day, or 2 rest days, then days.

Deeply distressing to see the Government have gone back on their promise to ban LGBTQ+ conversion therapy.

Then again, i’m not surprised.

While it is good to see they have made another u-turn, the exclusion of trans people is deeply concerning.

But like you I cannot say I am surprised.
Ukraine deserve all our sacrificies we can make. I changed my picture in a bid to soulte them for their bravery.
Hi mate, just saw your post regarding your first few weeks with Northern. I start tomorrow with the 2 day induction. Any tips/ advice you can share from your first few weeks?
I’ve got a real good impression of the company so far and your post also reassured me. Seem to be really good to work for and employees are well looked after.

Hi mate,

Apologies I have only just seen this. I’m 6 weeks in tomorrow and honestly so far everything has been excellent. But be prepared to do an awful lot of study. The amount you need to learn may seem a bit overwhelming so put the hours in and you will be fine. Most evenings I tend to do some revision and this also includes weekends. It will be worth it in the end I promise.
