Do not think I am that young anymore, feeling old, fed up, tired, having to move again, shelling out another 4,300 pounds on rent. Got to be gratefull, at least I am not in a cardboard box behind Asda.

Cardboard box behind Asda?

Luxury!

Speeding out of Trumpton with a cargo of cocaine.

I somehow doubt it ... but I expect we'll carry on with our familiar and re-assuring stability in most ways with just those few little "something different"s from time to time.

We'll probably know / decide more as we go through the next month or two ... but I doubt you'll see eggs at Easter

From my (admittedly limited) experience, contributors tend to wait until they have something interesting, informative or entertaining before posting.  That's what encouraged me to join and is one of the things that makes the forum stand out from others I've looked at.  Long may it continue!

Indeed (i.e. people post here in moderation).  I really doubt whether too many are down the pub!

For the absence of doubt, "Paul, Resignal Gloucester Now" is a new name for "Dispatch Box". The forum software does allow members to change their 'handles' and there are occasions when it's a good thing to do.   However, popping up with a new name, and without announcing that change, is disconcerting to the existing membership.

I noticed yesterday that Paul, or Dispatch Box, flagged up that he had triggered the posting ceiling; perhaps that should be taken as a request to keep posts to a level at which others feel comfortable and don't get upset.   The request / trigger is automated - the fact that only one member has hit it speaks volumes, I'm afraid.

This forum provides a valuable archive as well as an interactive resource.  Should the archive be being diluted by spray, or should it be being diluted because members are put off posting because of the spray, the admin and moderator team will step in. We are usually minimalist,and indeed I am asking here for people to think before they post - but we are not afraid to act if we need to.

Do you have something you would like to add to this thread, or would you like to raise a new question at the Coffee Shop? Please [register] (it is free) if you have not done so before, or login (at the top of this page) if you already have an account - we would love to read what you have to say!

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
