Sounds like the kid knew what he was doing, saying that points arnt rocket science to change and neither is driving a 08.
200 Hours for potentially causing a major rail incident if he had got out onto the mainline, and that's quite easy in Tinsley yard from experience myself, however i think the sentence for this kid was way, way to light. Something like this should be delt in a much stricter way, especially having 40 minutes at the helm of a 49 tonne loco!
Anyway, BMIFlyer has been told to stick to conducting until a driver position becomes available.

Thats pretty frightening Lew that he could get in there unstopped. I mean Tinsley isn't exactly some small backwater freight yard, surely somebody would have been suspicious by a loco rumbling up and down the tracks for 40 minutes in broad daylight!!!!!! High res vests are pretty easy to come by on ebay and the likes, he'd most likely have gotten away with it if he was wearing one by the sounds of it!
Ah well, at least we know now where Lee went on the Sunday
...love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

Quoting Trekster (Reply 6): View was my idea, but he looked like he was having fun. Remember the cute guy (not) in the white shirt and tight jean/shorts dancing just behind him, i think he pulled HAHAHAHAHA

I wonder what this guys train of thought of at the time? Do you think the idea of stealing a train and the action were of his own coupling, or do you think he was shunted in that direction by someone else?

His mates were with him by the trackside but he knew what he was doing and took full control of the loco and showed off to his mates.
I think his mates edged him on a little, but still.. could of been very nasty.
