This "West, but not the West's Trains" board is intended as a catch-all area for postings that are related to things going on or places in that wedge out Westwards from London, with Weymouth or perhaps Portsmouth (or Brighton?) to the South West, and Worcester to the North West - so including South Wales.

What's going on in Plymouth?   
Is Swansea a great place to visit? 
Does anyone know a good place to stay in Melksham? 

This is also an area where well established posters are welcome to post up the occasional advert for charity events they'll be taking part in, good causes they support, even products they offer that relate paricularly to people within this area.  The question will inevitable be asked "where are the limits" on this ... and as a rule of thumb, posts of this nature would be regarded as inappropriate here if they were:

* posted across a lot of boards
* posted by a member who signed up specifically to advertise or who used this facility a great deal
* repeated at frequent intervals
* significantly out of area
* in bad taste / dangerous / illegal / "adult"

and that's not necessarily a full list.  If in doubt, ask any of the moderators.

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
