Is it me or do most of the users on this forum seem to be from the West Midlands. Than again most forms of railway media seems to have it's 'Birmingham mafia', I guarantee all you need to do is buy a random issue of Traction Magazine and there most definitely will be an article about the West Midlands in there somewhere. :lol:

Yes Dave (cyberdon) I did work with Helen, a little lady as I remember. I know what you mean about Drivers moving depots for seniority etc, caused headaches when trying to cover the jobs; either the driver booked didn't sign the route or traction. Wasn't sure whether to mention the "seagulls" word for fear of upsetting anyone!!

Mind you the former Saltley lads came in very useful when we got special workings as they could do virtually every route in the Birmingham area and more or less every sort of diesel traction.

...and we upset our old colleagues by doing to them what we'd all been doing for years at Saltley. They didn't like their own medicine but they were the ones that taught us to do it :lol:

Happy days

If I had a pound for every time somebody said that to me when I walked into new street cabin I'd have £56.30 lol

Any truth in the rumour that the deep fat fryer from the canteen was handed to the National Railway museum , It was the hardest working thing in that place , Everything and I mean everything was cooked in that .... though they made a mean Bacon sarnie . First port of call when road learning , back for lunch then learn the route back home :lol:

You always knew when somebody had been road learning at Bescot as they was a stone heavier at the end of the week :lol:

Perhaps us former Birmingham men should ask Marky and the moderators for a special "Birmingham Mafia" section on this site. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't think anybody's had the courage to move it cos they're not sure what's floating around in it :lol: It's no wonder so many railwaymen die as soon as they retire :lol: :lol:

(Mods I think we could do with moving this thread to somewhere a bit more general. Looks like my bugs are here for a while longer anyway, or at least until T:ANE :lol: )
