That's good - I've been meaning to look up the Latin for 'phosfluorescently'  Grin

Fine on my Windows 10 laptop and on my iPhone8 running whatever flavour of iOS is the current one.

Many a true word written in jest ...

Yes but he's thrown a curveball by using the 'no reverse shunting' gambit. That wouldn't happen if we stuck to Stockton & Darlington Rules...

TLP ThamesLink Program

Thanks! Perhaps one of the Mods could add to the Acronym/Abbreviation section?

I looked up the TLA for TLP but it seems to be MIA. Do please enlighten us.  Wink Grin

Very interesting. But it seems odd to be converting solar-powered vessels to hydrogen. Are we to assume that the Bristol Channel isn't sunny enough to make them work efficiently?

Looks like this double whistle board answers the question I posed on the Golden Valley Line a few years back.

As does this page: https://www.railsigns.uk/sect15page1/sect15page1.html

...which specifically mentions Kemble to Standish Jcn.

No, but I can name the presenter. But I won't, as it happens...

I'm stuck on 8 and 25.

So if BNM doesn't have the answers, what do we do next?  Grin

Now - there were two intermediate halts on the line. Wonder if the plan includes either of them?

The halts were Park Leaze Farm (near Ewen) and Chesterton Lane. Well, Chesterton isn't on the new route (which skirts the proposed housing development there and then passes the Royal Ag, ending up almost where the original Cirencester Town station was) and a halt to serve a single farm seems unlikely. It looks like the Royal Ag would get its own halt though. It'll need plenty of parking for Range Rovers  Wink

Maybe some one should do a survey on how many passengers join the direct trains to London at Kemble in the rush
As well as the local trains from Kemble to Swindon,when everything settles down.
Okay,I volunteer so If everything has settled down maybe september would be a good time

I think the real question is, of those who commute from Kemble to Swindon/London in the rush hour, how many of them come from Cirencester itself? My suspicion is that the majority (myself included) come from a wide geographical spread of villages rather than from central Ciren. Therefore, most will still drive the few extra miles and park at Kemble (especially now the overflow car park exists and is never full) rather than drive to an industrial estate on the edge of the town, park, and take a shuttle.

You forgot Woody Allen's Sleeper.

Although I think that was just a supporting feature.
