Nothing to do with me.I don't work for Southern.(doh)

That's also your problem like many others.Just ridicule something of which you have no understanding of the complexities of it's working.

Not ridiculing anything.

Thought you'd said previously you worked for Southern. Are you on one of the main lines East/West Coast? Always thought they'd be the best to work on

SD - Who does ESI drive for?

ESI - Punctuality is the main thing - BUT communication is vital to. I'm a big fan of the drivers who will let you know what's going on instead of just having you sit there for ages. Although I suppose that might be the guards job on your train.

Yes. If all this disruption is down to staff going 'sick' won't it just lead to a strict absence management policy when it's all over? If they don't already have one, of course.

A few years ago, in lieu of strike action our cabin crew went 'sick' and a draconian absence policy was brought in which more or less for a people to come in sick as they are scared of disciplinary action as a consequence of staying at home.

I can say very little about the workings on the railway and railway politics but I must say I'm quite worried about what's going on.Luckily for me I have six to eight years minimum left but even that may be too long.

I kid you not but BBC4 have a programme this week called 'Trainspotting Live'. It's a bit like Spring Watch but with Class 55 'Sheds' instead of fox Cubs. The even give you a check list with what equipment you need to go out to 'spot' trains.

I saw that advertised.It's gonna be great. ;)

DOCUMENTARY: Trainspotting Live
On: BBC 4 (107)
Date: Tuesday 12th July 2016 (starting in 3 hours and 43 minutes)
Time: 20:00 to 21:00 (1 hour long)

Peter Snow and Dr Hannah Fry present live from Didcot Railway Centre. Peter is joined by Bob Gwynne, curator at the National Railway Museum, to apply his incredible knowledge of the British rail system to the live images coming in. Hannah is out and about at Didcot, working out the equations that meant that the move from steam to diesel power was inevitable. She also meets Sir Kenneth Grange, the man responsible for many design classics including the famous Intercity 125 which is this episode's focus for the spotters up and down the country. d!ck Strawbridge is on the hunt for a very special example of that train in Swindon, and also meets the group trying to buy and preserve the original prototype. Tim Dunn has moved south to Carlisle to spot one of the trainspotters' favourite locomotives, the Class 37. All of this, plus a man that has collected thousands of locomotive number plates and a short film about the 'flying banana'.
