|John||Green||Shot Blaster||started with "Wessex Train Care" as a shot blaster/sprayer in the old 1 & 2 sheds, also the old van shop, after the contract with virgin Mk 2's I then landed up in the paint shop vehicle prepping, linishing & painting, as we carried out our jobs we had the pleasure of working in all areas across the whole site. They were great days with guys who loved a laugh and joke but who cared about their work, what a shame it all ended. Good site by the way keep it up i will visit again. John|
