Antwerpen Calling

So, Professional Matt and I had a little road trip in the T Vend van last weekend to Antwerp, Belgium and Wuppertal, Germany….. It was a very nerdy trip to see Trams and the Hanging train (again) in the hope that the new trains were running. They were not, which means any other excuse to go later in the year.

Most of these night time pictures are blurry because Matthew and I decided after numerous drinks to go for a walk outside the hotel at 1am…

Another Quick update

another quick update from me.

As I’ve posted many times on here before, I’ve thought about seperating my blog into two seperate blogs, One for buses and one for personal stuff.  Each time I’ve  thought about it it’s kind of gone to the back of my mind as soon as I begin to realise what a pain in the arse its going to be to do….

So I’ve now decided not to seperate it, But leave it with you the reader to decide on what you see.

At the top of the screen in the green bar, You can now choose to just see bus related posts, or no buses at all 🙂

If you are not fussed or like reading both types then just come here as normal 🙂

 

Training progresses at LM with me now doing my on the train training, Currently working through my route knowledge which I’m finding tough in places but plenty of revising at home seems to be doing the trick!

 

On the bus side, News reaches me of plans for a N5 night bus in MK from mid July, Once I have more details I’ll post here.

 

Not much else been going on, Sold my Macbook Air as I just could get on with it for £750 on ebay and used the money to buy me a nice new windows Laptop, some decent headphones, iPhone dock and still have some money left over!

Quick update from me

Another quick update,
Still in training at London midland, going well and it is very interesting… I just wanna get out there and do it now! Hopefully should be only a couple more weeks and I’ll be able to put all the classroom work into practice….

I’m thinking about buying one of these now.. (yes I know it’s sad!)

We are currently at the ticket machine training stage, So many ticket types and condition codes to remember!

The other day we took a walk along to the sidings to have a look at a train… Don’t realise how big they are when you are stood on the platform!

That’s pretty much it for now, looking forward to a weekend away in Great Yarmouth next weekend.

Bus related news, MK solo 2440 has lost its registration MK02 BUS…. I wonder where it’s gone…;-)

Let’s make this a two way conversation, let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments 🙂


Quick post

Just a quick update to say I’m still alive.

Have so far passed my personal track safety test, and am currently working towards my ‘rules and regulations’ test in a couple of weeks….. Then I might actually go near a train!!

Have to say I’m finding it fascinating at the moment, the way the signalling works is brilliant! (I’m turning into a train geek!)
