From the Bishops Lydeard Facebook Page, that excellent source of news about plans on the TransWilts line  Cheesy Cheesy

Quote
GO-OP is a co-operative society, planning to run an electric train service between Bishops Lydeard, Taunton & Swindon. They have launched a consultation about their plans. More details below in the link above and for our Transport scholar members at http://www.passenger.chat/24561 where I've just started a discussion on the issues.

Electric innovation in Bishops Lydeard? Your views are requested.

A project funded by Innovation UK is seeking to bring 21st century rail technology to the 19th century station at Bishops Lydeard ? a renewable energy generation and storage system for a battery powered train.

The "Transport Scholars" board referred to (above) is where we occasionally go deeply into specific subject - admins, moderators, data managers always there - other members very welcome if they wish to be.  Please like this topic if you would like me to add you in so the link works - I will check back from time to time until 25th January to follow up.  As an alternative, send me a personal message.  Sorry - Transport Scholars is a members-only area for regular contributors

It's something new to talk about for a few years, I suppose.

Hmmm ... or has Go-op now learned its way in to be making proposals where all the ducks line up? Answer, please, not here but in the "Transport Scholars" area - http://www.passenger.chat/24561 .

Sorry grahame, force of habit. I have learned not to get too excited when I see Go-op over the past 8 years. I'll be wrong one day.

The long history of Go-op is certainly a factor which helps colour views of their proposals.

To be fair, 8 years is but a moment in railway projects. I am surprised they are still going for it, though, even if "it" changes often.
