Cheers Guys,

Karl, the Routes can vary depending on the time booked on and off, you usually know what sort of job it is after a few weeks on the rosters apart from Ballast turns when you can be booked on anytime. Again traction can vary but im signed for both Tug and Shed...(mostly shed! )

Dave, To be honest there are signs of some sort of recovery as a few Steel flows have returned but it was nothing like it was back a year ago!

Here's a few pics of around the depot taken yesterday.

Margam TMD, a bit empty dont you think?

60026,60021 and 60062 all in "Warm store" inside the depot and to cover the pits for H&S reasons...

60062...

08770 'Benny',37669 and 08xxx stored on the battery road.

more to follow :wink:

Bet you prefer tugs to sheds, heard the seats in the sheds are pretty bad.

Out of interest do you sign to Dee Marsh?

The seats in the sheds are not too bad actually, they recline :wink: so if you got a 3 or 4 hour break inbetween a job then i usually tend to lay back and read a book.
No karl, thats too far North :lol: we would do a crew changeover at Hereford. I Think its Crewe Drivers who then would take over but i haven't learned the route yet.

Congrats on finishing the training! Hopefully the work will start to pick up and the situation becomes a bit better. Keep the good shots coming too,
