Hi,

I have been a lurker since I found the coffee shop when googling details of the Reading station rebuild.

I am now retired but spent much of my career commuting Bristol / London 1 or 2 days a week, my travels are now off peak from Yatton.

I remember the introduction of the HSTs and am awaiting the opportunity to try an IET.

Welcome to the forum, Rob ... off peak from Yatton these days I note - still to London, or more local trips like Bristol?

Trips to London for exhibitions etc.  Home to Yatton is 20 minutes, home to Bristol is 35.
It is nice not to be catching the very early train from Temple Meads, even if I was in the front.
I admire all the work you have done on the Transwilts and this coffee shop.
