    Being a W.E. you're unlikely to get a high bunk light bill.

    It does indeed. Ask the question from your chair & then wait for the answer to appear in front of you.

    Apart from the WNCBC* aspects, you've cracked-it! :thumright:

    *WNCBC=Willy-Nilly Circuit Board Changes.

    When I was an OM and worked in the various WE departments we did various things from system checks, to hydraulic pipe changing, to circuit board making, to greasing, to cleaning, to sleeping, etc. Depending which section you work on depends on what type of engineering we did i.e electrical or mechanical if that makes sense.

    I am a CPOET(WE), started life as a WEM then went on tiffs course and just recently ended up being an ET.

    What questions do you have lucky? Would be glad to assist in any way, shape or form.

    I was a WE tiff for 23 but left and got an easier job that paid more!!!! Tis true.
    Sorry for the digression but couldn't help the OP as they have changed everything in the last 2 years.

    Ah, now it makes sense.

    Your trolleys are truly ablaze! :thumright:
  19. Of course when WNCBC fails to sort it they resort to the other tried and tested WE repair technique - CTC*

    *CTC = Call The Contractor
