Did you have a dog with you?

Is that the technical term for a female dog? He's already said he didn't have one...

There's one obvious question: Breich ... why?

Was it just of you "befriending" work as a volunteer, visiting old stations to see if they feel lonely?

Maybe Grahame was eyeing up the bench to improve the waiting facilities at Melksham once Breich closes.

An interesting question.  As a learning experience; having read about it, being vaguely in the area, somewhere to go and look and do some finding out.  Understand the metrics of what's there, and how that reflects into what's proposed.

Hmm ... you have an assumption of closure there.  Has it been decided of just proposed and consultations requested?  Not looking to transport any station hardware, but to transport knowledged gained.

I believe the consultation period has just ended, so no decision yet.
