  • These old school mentors of mine (and yours) taught me all about dignity and respect a long time before any contrived course decided that this would be part of the conditions of my employment.

    All the best for the future lads.


  • The railways will be the poorer to the tune of probably 150 years of total service when these four fellow workers retire – I hope they will not be strangers to us and after their retirement will keep in touch – the camaraderie of fellow workers is very important in an industry like ours despite so many attempts by governments of all political persuasions to circumvent it by importing management from overseas. Best wishes to all of them and their families in retirement.
