VOLUNTEERS WANTED

Post by philipy » Thu Nov 25, 2021 12:42 pm

I think I'm right in saying that the Inspector only has one more Aussie line to visit before he moves on.
We therefore need new volunteers to be inspected! It doesn't matter where in the world you are, he has of course done the UK and has been to Russia and Australia. He is fully vaccinated and complies with all known Covid entry requirements, worldwide. So come on folks, sign up :lol: :lol:

Another excellent report, very entertaining, well done Jake! Some lovely photos too, I particularly like the ones of the inspector poking around the yard.

I think he's got the wrong end of the stick in the final photos though - he's not shrunk, that's just a MASSIVE loco. It looks very nice, by the way, do you have a picture of the rest of it?

All the best,

Andrew.

I wonder if any of our quieter members who don't normally post would like to take this as a fun opportunity to introduce themselves? Come on folks, we'd love to see pictures of your railways - and The Inspector isn't too scary, he hasn't actually shut any of us down, yet...

Aye, another very enjoyable report!
As an aside, I think that shot with "Pozieres" been the Inspector's first brush with a "Giant" loco?

Perhaps if the Inspector's current travels are indeed coming to an end, he might make some new rounds in a few years time?
Circumstance may have conspired against Mr. Spectre's intended visit to the Queensland canefields next year, :oops: But Scum Class Works (only an hour North of Potters Orchid!) would be very happy to meet his travel costs from the UK, once we can finally provide him a functioning line to properly inspect.

Well put, Andrew and Phil!
Regards,
Aaron - Scum Class Works

I love that railmotor. I just wonder what the other two (or maybe more) look like .... :)

Thanks for another entertaining report - Australia has proved to be a very fertile source for inspections!
And just to add to Andrew and Philip's comments - if you have never had an inspection, it really isn't as bad as it sounds, and gives a perfect opportunity to show off your pride and joy. And as has been mentioned, no line has ever been closed due to an inspector's visit. He's a very reasonable man. :lol:
