Friday 1 June 2012

Not much happening though there does seem to be a lot of trains breaking down at the moment. On Tuesday I went to LIS with a Train Tech and a TOSM to take one with suspension problems out of the sidings and round to HAI depot via GRH, a long journey when you are limited to 32kph with the EB stacking up behind you. We had delays yesterday but that was mostly down to passengers being taken ill, pulling down handles and having altercations with each other; must be the weather.

Although both TOp unions have agreed a deal for the Olympics there is still a great deal of confusion over what the situation is about working the longer and later shifts. Word going round the depot is that discussions between union and management continue in an attempt to sort out the mess. I will keep you informed as and when I hear anything definite.

Two days off and then I’m back on Sunday for the Jubilee weekend; should be a giggle.
