Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

If you go to the toilets on the path between duel and FV and look over the fence you will see the daisy themed train on the floor with some doors open and one of the driver cab windows missing.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I wonder if lack of info e.g ride line up, 2016 map, F&B outlets. is down to internal politics / meeting on who want what open/closed etc.

Re: X Sector Refurbishment

Just a quick thought.. The van theming element in X sector. Couldn't it be the ambulance used in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLcFwxTIhC0&list=UUWr05Cjj6w-EmLVdyCdlVvA&index=12 ??? I mean it seems a bit of a waste for Alton towers to buy an ambulance and only use it for one d...

Re: Liverpool Duckmarine Sinks!

Yes it is real, I was talking to the maritime VHF radio trainer at work today. He used to own a DUKW, and had an educated guess at the fault that caused it.

Re: Has anyone ever attempted to write a novel?

I have thought about writing a novel but have not, due to the struggle I have with writing and my dyslexia.  The closest I have got is writing a autobiographical type blog about my time with a step daughter with Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). I did start adapting it into a book, got suck and to...

Re: Going to be working during 2013 season? Come say Hi.

you will have to let us know what ride you will be working on and supply us with a photo so we can recognize you.

I like the idea of a vulcan salute from TT members, as it a little less noticeable by other guests than a full Rimmer salute :D
