BATUS WHAT A POOR WINTER REPAIR

#1
Winter repair this year, dont belive all you read. It was poor quicker, better and higher standard? easy after only three MM and nearly 50% work done before Bn arrived. Wonder what the Bn PVR rate was after that stint.

Poor most the kit inspectd a week after WRP failed the eci, poor that the day before dday the BG were still track bashing.poor that a lot of the stuff signed off as fit was vor a/s. next Bn to have a go wont have to try too hard to make an improvement

Do you think next year the BATUS Wksps might be a bit more cooperative to 6Bn?

Resistance to change is normal so don’t feel too bad about it!!!!

I did WRP some year’s back and at the end of the program there was still over 1000 hours of work outstanding on the B line. Is the standard significantly worse than last year?

ECI is more a test of systems than anything else!

Who conducted the ECI?
WRP never did include "Track Bashing", this was always done by the driver mechs.

Who signed the VOR kit off as fit? Surely the person would be traceable?

I take it PTE_BOZZ is on the Batus Perm staff Nom roll and was made to work for a living instead of playing ice hockey? :lol:

May I remind PTE_BOZZ that this is the first winter repair to actually meet its targets in 30(ish) years.

And it wasnt even a full strength Bn that was "giving you a hand" 8O

No im not on the PS. Bn never brought/trawled for pers to do dvrs task despite being advised to. i know it wasnt a full strentgh Bn, so whydid they bring whole top corridor co, rsm* etc and a whole plie of non productive on a jolly. what was needed was for bn to provide the manpower to fit in to the setup that already exists, not take over the whole thing.

*RSM was a top bloke though covvies on and graffting.

Driver Mechs were trawled, did you visit A line?

The Bn brought everyone that they could. Rear party was minimal.

Just because they are "top corridor" doesn't make them non productive (Track Bashing etc)

The plan never was to "fit in to the setup" as it had not been working, the plan was to change it so it did work.
A success I think.

surely you must be top corridor to make assumptions that the systems were not working in the past personally a veteran of two winter repairs two deactivations and numerous med mans i and a team of similar minded people managed to get all the challies out three weeks early i think your just looking for that slap on the back you tiffy or wannabe
 
#14
Nope, not "top corridor" myself, the problem was never with Chally line, it was B line that had never been completed in the past (according to the stats)

I am a Medman, WRP, activation and deactivation vet so know only too well how much the lads graft to meet targets.
I wasnt looking for a pat on the back Sleeper, I can take no credit as I am not the ideas man behind it, I am one of the black hand guys at shop floor level but I can see when something isn't working or needs changing.

fair one b-line stopped us getting our unofficial week off at the end of winter repair the q man did not want to see us farmed out more polotics than westminster im afraid just ashame that there wont be many trawls that will get me out of this pish posting, gone for good are the days of six months of work hard play hard in canada. :twisted:

Having also experience of 2 WRP'S and variuos MM, activation, deactivation etc etc. Having started this topic im glad that i did get some responses. Some of the ideas the Bn brought to the party were fine 8T lean line for example, but poor quality. The B line this year did meet the intended target in numbers because it did benefit from more manpower than it normaly gets in a trawl winter repair, but the overall quality was poor and discovered after the Bn had left. It should also be noted that the qualityof life for both the P.S and Bn pers was lacking with 14 hour days and little downtime. The only true way that this Bn winter repair idea will be fully tested is either side of a full season of MM's if we ever get to that stage again. As for you sleeper there are still some chances to come over on summer T.S.

Bozz mate, you had EVERY weekend off, early knock off fridays and you were left alone for a whole 10 hours a day, not to mention the "wild card" and no duties........how much easier do you want it? LOL :lol: :lol:

I do agree though that only a full season of MM would thoroughly test the kit, unfortunately that won't happen for quite some time.

Batus is no longer included in my PP form :(

You may be dissapointed in Med Hat, no more "whitby kippers" in the bars downtown. Lethbridge is the closest now, not that I condone that kind of activity I might add. 8O :twisted:
