I.E a bright green GWR staff member should be very visible in crowd of passengers anyway!

I didn't realise that GWR staff are now bright green in colour.  This must make recruitment very difficult.  I assume they are now placing recruitment adverts only on mars, where as we all know little green men (and presumably women) are know to originate.    Shocked Tongue

If only they wore 'bright' green! The current iniform means they can't be seen over 10 yards in a crowd!

Pink - the new Orange

I understand that henceforth, Orange hi-vis tabards will be used to identify rail staff, with a new colour being introduced for community volunteers. Proud to wear the new colour for the first time yesterday



As yet, pink hivis tabards are not the easiest things to source when you realise at short notice that you should have them.  But worth the effort and they made us - err - highly visible - in the Melksham Carnival Parade.

Exactly the linkage I anticipated. I have a pride in what we've achieved in Melksham with the train service (though I am more than a little p**sed off this morning with zero trains running because they're short staffed!).  And I am delighted that three out of four of our team took that same mature pride in being rail volunteers and wore them right through the parade.
