I had a street light outside the kitchen window (1st floor) in my Trowbridge flat. With the street lighting engineer as a neighbour it was used as a trial for LED lights so that he could monitor it easily. Because the LED gave a more directed light it didn't light my kitchen as well as the previous SON unit. I have replaced tungsten bulbs in my house and, despite being  of a lower equivalent wattage, they appear brighter as the light is very white

I refer the honourable gentleman to the reversal derogation I requested in an earlier post  Grin

My apologies, derogation noted and suggestion valid!

If you want a station with a warren of underground rooms and tunnels try Waterloo its vast and complex.

Much of Paddington's basements and passageways have over the years been trashed, WW2 damage quite a number, and HEX severed / sealed off a large number of others

I predict that in the future, ultra modern LED streetlights would have a beam pattern that could be controlled in software.
With one LED cluster behind carefully configured optics, different parts of said cluster could be controlled remotely depending on which part of the optics are to be lit. Besides flexibility in application, any complaints about unwanted light spill, and the offending sub-cluster of LEDs could be shut off remotely, without the need of an engineer to visit with paint.

I have raised this with a contact at GWR and it is being investigated.  I'll come back when I hear more.

There is also Clapham to Clapham Junction - and prior to 1967, the former was also a junction.

Cholsey to Chorley is a journey I have done.  Smiley

For the past three weeks it's not been possible to book online Perranwell to St Ives journeys, How do I expedite this obvious fault with the system so that it's looked at. I suspect other combinations are affected too.

I've EM'd customer services without response and tried Twitter too.
