Spod.


Well now, I had a right old week of it and it felt the longest in ages. I started out on Monday passing through London on the way to HQ in Bedfordshire. I had a course there for three days and then high tailed it to Cumbria on Thursday night to see a store that has just been refurbished. The store is a barn conversion from 1841 and it sits just on the Cumbria/Lancs border.

The train up north was quite entertaining and had only two stops, Preston and Glasgow. Unfortunately we stopped at Staffordshire as some hooligan types had stolen signalling cabling (according to Ken, our Train Manager) . Anyhow, I made my conenction and spent the evening and next day in Cumbria before finally returning to BS5 (somewhat tired) on Friday night.

I was at the old Fast Train Vid' station on Monday and it hammered it down with rain - although I got a bit wet, I did have the delight of trains rocketing through full of lightning as the rain bounced off the wires. Total Spod Action.....

Here's one from earlier.

D'ang: trust this is blogger adrenaline that suits?

Sorry Alaina... Trains are for boys only. You're a girl, so you're not allowed to play.

Now D'ang, that's not very nice is it? Alaina is a girl with a shiny Mac book and I suspect she appreciates a train just as much as we chaps...

Yeah that wasn't nice D'ang! Good thing the only thing better than trains and geeky stuff are men who aren't afraid to hurt someone's feelings! :-)
