Angelislington (or AI): Is it secret places and hidey-holes? Is it Art Deco? Is it being an ex-goth? It's more London than the city above it - who knows what originally fostered AI's love of Tubey things and the Northern Line but she's now an all-out UndergrounD fan. While she did work for LU and LT Property for a short while, today she’s an IT trainer and basic English/Maths tutor for adults. She confesses to buying every noisy CD on eBay, reading graphic novels & sci-fi/cyberpunk books, squealing with excitement at MotoGP shenanigans and cuddling her four squashy boy ratties.
Pointless Fact: An anagram of AI's surname is 'It's Never Dull'.... she also wakes up most mornings thinking of the word 'onomatopoeia'.
Art: A former LU member of staff who used to drive on the artery coloured line!
Pointless Fact(s): There’s more than one, in that Art loves cycling and also dyes his hair all manner of crazy colours and styles.
DavidH: A lifelong Underground enthusiast, I have been photographing the tube on and off since 1988. Used to drive buses or coaches, but but now a Royal Mail driver. Married with twins.
Pointless Fact: Keen photographer who refuses to give up on film and home processing.
Dstock7080: Interested in public transport, particularly LT buses, from an early age. Probably responsible for sending his Brother onto LT Railways so he could find out for himself! Joined LT at the earliest opportunity, as an Operating Apprentice. Forum member from the forum’s very early days and had pleasure of working alongside 'District Dave'. Today he works on the green line, but during his time with LU, has occasionally defected to other lines... perhaps he should be called boomerang as he always returns!
Pointless Fact: He’s an avid devotee of all things Gerry Anderson and could probably quote scripts from "Carry On" films all night... so remember never go to the pub with him!!!
Harsig: Has an encyclopaedic knowledge about all things signalling on London Underground... and even uses signalling terms in everyday conversation...
Pointless Fact: He plays with signals at work... and also at home. Harsig is lucky enough to have a full-sized Semaphore signal in his back garden.
MetControl: Currently serving a life sentence since leaving school for the institution known as The London Underground. Presently occupied as a Line Controller on the Metropolitan Line, which is how he came up with that imaginative username.
Pointless Fact: He don't own a passport, and his real name is an anagram of the words "nude rascal." But rest assured, he claims, there'll be none of that sort of behaviour from him on the forum!
MRFS42: Born as a result of the Abermule accident in January 1921. MRFS admits to having an unhealthy obsession with working timetables ranging from the Festiniog Railway in 1856 (via the Rio Grande Southern) to anything from the Underground and that he knows too much about signalling.
Pointless Fact: Dislikes the GWR and claims to understand the significance of Isle of Man, Obi-wan Kenobi and Baby Bio... for the sake of you’re own sanity its probably best not to ask!
Rich32: Was concieved as a South Londoner, but turned out to be a Essex-Boy. Despite having a life long interest in the railways, it was only after waking up from the 20-year long nightmare of being a retail slave, he finally realised his true calling... instead he went to work for LU.
Pointless Fact: Despite, loving tomato everything, Rich32 cannot stand raw tomatoes... that’s just strange!
SE13: Lewisham born & bred bus driver who’s based in Lincoln. Separated with 5 children who are driving him nuts... and an Arsenal supporter!
Pointless Fact: Has a fear of heights and is allergic to chocolate... whether this is ALL chocolate or simply chocolate strategically placed at the top of a very tall stepladder we have no idea!
Tomcakes: Acting as the ambassador to the North amongst the Mods, Tomcakes is also a fully qualified cynic and card-carrying Grumpy Young Man. He can normally be found attempting to coax a computer into working, or wielding a soldering iron... and he’s not afraid to use it (on a computer)
Pointless Fact: Tomcakes can happily spend 7 hours on a train, but is scared stiff of flying.
