Did you get blown off by your lookout man?
No but the signalman got in trouble for w4nking at passing trains, when asked what he thought he was doing he replied "I got told to keep pulling off for trains...." I'll get me coat.

Are we talking 79 (regs) or 275 ?

Ive been with 275 for 3 years and dont recall Gary. Mr T has been the gaffer all the time Ive been there.

Polar,
Have you got one of those tweed jackets with leather elbow patches, and a very old tartan flask. Don't write anymore I'm not ready to slip into a coma yet!

Regards
The very interesting, informative and not least handsome Mr Bruce Willis

Cheers for that - he was a watchkeeper in the BLMF in '96 before giving up infantry life and joining Network Rail and the train sqdn/troop thingy.

Watching that video reminds me that it was actually quite dry during the first week. It would have been a different matter entirely if they'd done it during the second week when it pissed it down with rain everyday and the drops got stuck at the bottom of the hill!
