Yeah that sounds like a plan.  Wouldn't mind finding an outdoor market or car boot sale.

I haven't been since 1998 but even then the Eiffel Tower was a nightmare to go up because there is only 4 lifts and they don't hold many people. The people were rude, river stank and there was dog shit everywhere.

Other than that, it's a wonderful place. Smile

Can't wait  Big Grin Sounds like a cross between the bbs and Selhurst. 

So far I can report the weather is about 20 times better than in Scotland recently, and the trains are a lot newer and faster, and run on time.  If I can find a bar to watch the final tonight I'll be happy enough with it.

Have to say I found Paris a great place, with friendly people and very little dog shit. The only problem was the million little handbag shops we had to stop at. The food was great and the weather fucking hot all weekend. I would definitely go back and would apply to drive the eurostars if I could speak better French. Ah well, back to the land of rain.

If I'd stayed in london in 1992 instead of moving to scotchland I would be driving the eurostars for 80 grand a year instead of the pittance we get at scotchrail. Plus I would have been sent to Belgium to live with a family for 6 months to learn the lingo

They would have sent you back  Wink

I don't think they even drive both ways in a day do they?

It wouldn't surprise me if in the near future they change drivers at at Ashford so Eurostar drivers are just glorified shuttle drivers between St Pancreas and Ashford.

I remember when the station opened at Waterloo, those twats walked around like they were airline pilots. It was particularly annoying when former colleagues poached used to ignore us like we were lower than them.

We used to give them the finger when we passed them between International Junction and Waterloo because they had to go so slow. For some reason the Windsor Reversible had a lower speed than the Windsor Up.

But I'm not bitter... Smile

I applied to them once, it was on the rail uk forums that they were looking.  Got rejected straight away.  In hindsight I should have put a bit more effort into my application.  Can you see a pattern forming?  Smile

Like the giving of the finger.  I do that to Aberdeen drivers.  Move-refusing c*nts.

It's a railway club mate.  We have a moan about your work thread  Smile I want to moan that after a 9hr 45 minute turn today, I've had to drive to Edinburgh airport to pick my boy up at half bloody one in the morning.

Whenever anyone moans about their kids I always say the same thing. I bet you wish she'd have swallowed instead. Big Grin
