Well done John and he's helpers. This forum has been very valuable for information and help. It's good to know that there are a lot of people with signalling interest too out there. DING DING...DING :)

May I echo the sentiments above.

I'm not a massive contributor but I do find it a very Interesting read when I do pop in.

The depth of knowledge so many of you chaps possess is staggering.

Well done Mr Hinson, your efforts (and your helpers) are appreciated.

What he said.


As an enthusiast with no professional experience of signalling I find the forum a very useful source of information on a fascinating subject.

I really must get on with organising a Forum Meet at some point - I've mentioned it several times to JH.

How about something in January to beat off the post 'Festival of the Merchants' blues? If there's sufficient take-up, I'll start a new thread.

I know of a few good pubs in that there London - probably around the KXStP area, but not exclusively so.
ND: Why is there a door handle on the inside of my airing cupboard?
MF: Because it's the fire exit from Narnia.

I like David Lynch films. I don't consider incomprehension to be a barrier to enjoyment.

Pity this idea wasn't suggested earlier - we could have made it part of our signalling gala last month.
