How did the name of the Wailing Wall Construction Company come about? --Robin (talk) 20:24, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm happy to be corrected but I believe it was coined when the low walls along the perimeter of the loco shed were constructed. The full title being WWWCC; Whitey's Wailing Wall Construction Company dubiously honouring the name of the main honcho of the gang, Steve White. More recently with Steve's elevation to a director and thus now being less able to be an active participant one of the W's was dropped to create WWCC. This has since had PLC (Pretty Limited Craftsmen) added in light-hearted self-recognition of the quality of the work they carry out. Boldford (talk) 18:01, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Help please. I tried to be clever with <nowiki> on CollettCharles Benjamin Collett, Chief Mechanical Engineer (CME) of the Great Western Railway 1922-1941's name, but it hasn't worked. Thanks--Patrick Hearn (talk) 22:23, 18 June 2023 (UTC)

Fixed. Just needed a '/' adding to the closing tag. --Robin (talk) 13:58, 19 June 2023 (UTC)
