It looks like there was a post in the thread that needed approval.  There are a few members on the forum who need their posts approved before they appear to everyone.  I hadn't realised (or remembered!) that it also changed the colour of the thread for everyone else as well.  It should be normal now.  :)

I can explain it to you...

I'm starting to feel really senile now. I always thought it was pink! No wonder I just got new glasses  :worried:

I saw the "Please Explain" heading and got all excited. I thought someone had been issued with a "Form 1".

Only big railway people will understand. :D

The Aussie members will immediately think of Pauline Hanson. I know I did!

But as GrahamB says above, only certain people will understand.  :thumbsup:

I feel left out now as I haven't got a scooby doo what you're on about.

Isn't it past your bed time anyway George?

Same here I started this thread and no idea what you are talking about. Any way thanks Tank for explaining the reason for the colour change whatever colour it was, I bet Laurence the owner of the topic has no idea about all this, lol.

Teehee,
On the big railway, if you have cocked up or may have cocked up you would get a "Form 1", otherwise called a "Please explain".

One example would be a SPAD.
