My highlighting:

I'm Mark from Weston-super-Mare

Don't work in the rail industry but have been commuting between Weston and Temple Meads for over 25 years now.
Spend all my spare time either following Bristol City or helping out at my local social club.

With the football connection I am a moderator on two of their fans forum websites. One with over 17,000 members and the other with a few hundred - so can fully appreciate all the time and effort that goes into this site, but assume you don't get all the problems we get over there with language and rants from angry fans

At my local social club I look after all the entertainment bookings, the advertising (web, facebook, radio, local paper) and the clubs websites.

My grand dad did work at Weston station many many years ago, so that is where my liking of the railway started. Will always remember the days in trainspotting at WSM station and the driver of a class 37 let me ride the cab when the engine shunted from one end of the train to the other via the other line

Highlighted bit noted by our moderator team Grin Grin , and with life changing for so many of us at the present time, we felt our team or moderator can usefully be strengthened.  I am delighted to welcome Mark as an additional moderator on the Coffee Shop.   Mark, I doubt you'll see the same rants as you see here from the footie fans, but we have been know to have strong discussions as to whether class 33 or 50 was best!

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.

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 ...
