1 in 10 ideas only

This campaign tip (no. 29) was published on Tuesday, 29th January 2019
You don't have to follow through with every idea ... look for those that work.

As I write this, I'm trying out a script which lets you find the next train to your destination at the station. Passengers headed for train's final destinations can see a departure board (if they can find one!) but passengers headed for intermediate stations - especially ones that some trains skip - are poorly catered for.

As I write ... for 29th January 2019 ... I haven'e a clue as to whether people will pick this up and find it useful, or whether the page will just sit there ...

These pages are written by Graham Ellis of Melksham, Wiltshire. Overlapping a life in IT and IT training, with running a hotel and campaigning for improved public transport, Graham has never been quiet - though he's starting to wind down gently now. He no longer takes overnight guests and has stepped doen from the "Community Rail Officer" role which he accidentally aquired. So he now has more time to write pages such as these and to travel in the UK. He'll be delighted to speak with your group or take a look through your case or camapaign, but be alerted that his time is not limitless even now, and he still has to keep the wolf from the door.

What a difference a campaign makes!

It probably wouldn't have happened without a strong community campaign with which I have been involved. Most days through 2019 I'll be sharing a thought, an idea, a way of working or an experience. Come back here for the links. Discussions via the Coffee Shop Forum - Graham Ellis, 31st December 2018
