Wow, that’s quite a speaker line up you’ve got there Graham, brilliant. Would have liked to have come and heard what they had to say, but I’m abroad that week.

Totally agree, not to be missed.

It should be very interesting.  Guests welcome - very welcome - though very much the Wiltshire perspective on the day, with the lines / services listed on the flyer to the fore.  Whilst general GWR aspects will be relevant and I'm sure mentioned, the agenda will be so packed with Wiltshire (and Southampton) elements that issues relevant only to other areas won't be on the table.

Is it too late to see any trialling of “cross Salisbury” services this December? 

Presumably a somewhat low priority for NR planners, what with the current Thameslink and Northern nightmares...

As a significant number ... I might look late than December.  With the three through trains from north of Salisbury that currently terminate at Southampton ...

How's this for a picture of what we'll be talking about?

I am delighted to announce the addition of Stephen Joseph, CEO of Campaign for Better Transport (CBT), to our speaker list for 20th June. I have amended the flyer / advert at the top of this thread.

On the CBT website, Stephen describes himself

Quote
Experience:
Stephen became the executive director of Campaign for Better Transport in 1988. His transport policy expertise is widely regarded, and he is regularly called to serve as a governmental advisor. He has led numerous successful policy campaigns, is frequently quoted by the national press, and is a regular author of research and opinion pieces.

He was awarded the OBE in 1996 for services to transport and the environment. In 2008 he was honoured with a PTRC Lifetime Achievement Award 'for furthering the role of transport planning in society'.

Why I work for Campaign for Better Transport:
People desperately need real travel choices. Our over-reliance on the car is ruining our towns and countryside, with town centres dying and acres of space being swallowed up by car parks.

A few words that describe a very long, and very effective career.  For once, I'm a bit lost for words. And a speaker who's really worth coming to listen to.

An excellent day - final agenda and combined slide set (just one talk missing) at http://www.twcrp.org.uk/20180620_slides.pdf . Around 50 delegates (good, as we had a room for 48  Grin ) and some very valuable networking opportunities indeed - not only on the North - South corridor but also east - west across Westbury. Some excellent talks and good questions.

Good to see everyone seems to be on the same page as far as TransWilts service linkage goes. 

Just wondering though, if they get to the stage where all the GWR services through the "Salisbury Corridor" are operated by 165 or 166 of various lengths, eg up to 5 cars on the Portsmouths,  will the SWR 158s be seen as unusual interlopers?

Would it be better for the overall product image if the Salisbury-Romsey route was also operated by the GW TOC and used the same stock?  Perhaps with some (ie 3) SWT 158s moving west to compensate?

Operational matters such as these are on the table and things being discussed, as indeed is the issue of who drives the trains on which parts of the route.

I now have the Network Rail presentation too ... the whole thing has gotten rather long and so is in two sections

(Dan Panes of GWR, Nick Farthing of Three Rivers, Bridget Fox of Campaign for Better Transport)

and
http://www.twcrp.org.uk/Conference20062018_Afternoon_Presentations.pdf
(Alexander Maltby of Network Rail and Andy Mellors of SWR)

Huge thanks to all five speakers, to Paul and Rosemarie Johnson for organising the day, and to all of the attendees who gave up their day to come along, be informed, and are helping develop the lines / service / cases.
