    Recently, I achieved the dubious honour of reaching 40 years service, and fortunately rather than getting a clock or watch, we got to choose our own gift, and Mine has arrived.




    Yep a box, but whats inside I hear you ask ......


    Is that muttering I hear as you try and read the upside down label :avatar:

    Inside the case is .........


    and under the foam pads are ........


    We have an Avonside Works (from Eileens Emporium) Chassis 2 Super Pro chassis jig (5 axles for O gauge with additional pin set for 1/8th & 2mm axles (OO / EM / P4).

    And an instruction CD that Toto has already told me I have to read then explain it to him - nae rest for the wicked.

    When I managed 25 years service a few months before I took VR, I was given a cheque for £200 (in the same envelope as my redundancy cheque!).:avatar::avatar::avatar:

    Nice one :thumbup:. When I finished with voluntary redundancy I was escorted from the plant to make sure I didn't nick one of the fractionation towers.
    Mind you they didn't see what I liberated on the last few night shifts ;) :avatar:

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Well done Paul,

    Sadly Austerity did away with any sort of long service awards in local government here in Wakefield.

    25 & 40 year long service award ceremony, 16 of us and partners flown down to Stoke for the combined event, then 5 weeks later we get told the factory is to close, now there is a kicker to round of the event..

    It was a great event, and I decided I wanted to get something that I will use regularly doing something I enjoy and remind me of the great guys (and gals) I've known and worked with over the years.

    Now I just have to do the jig justice - and learn how to use it :whatever: (yes I know - then show Toto :giggle:)
