Hello there Paul, it would indeed - I had a semi-consistent phase of photo updates and the like, but perhaps as the Metrolink upgrades have gathered pace I've struggled to keep up. I don't post so much anymore (since there's always someone else first to grab a scoop!), but still observe the goings-on. I imagine my time here will be similarly spent, with the odd accidental sighting, impulsive photographic haul or tentatively-tabled opinion. And every now and then, I may actually dare to post about them!
Considering just how comprehensive this site is (and no doubt helped by your stewardship), I couldn't resist signing up. Despite having neither the lineage nor the career path befitting a forum regular, I like to follow the day-to-day railway picture. And may the following continue.

Thanks, (and sorry for the late reply!). I don't remember seeing many but then again until recently there wasn't a lot for us to add to the conversation as obviously this was a fairly bottom of the pile conversation before the Dawlish incident.
