You are very very VERY welcome to sign up and join the forum if you want to read and talk about transport and travel issues across the wider "South West" or associated topics.

But, sadly, for each person who wants to sign up to talk about the subjects this forum covers, there are many others who wish to use our platform for other purposes.

Our (manually checked) filtration system has, and continues, to serve us well - however, a recent increase in what I'll describe as "spam signups" leaves me fearful of overlooking a genuine request to join as I delete those spam signups.

Please sign up and join if you're interested in travel in the Thames Valley, South West, or South Wales - even if you'll only be posting very occasionally and are mostly a reader, or even if you just have one specific question at the moment. This will help us keep you up to date as we plan forward.  If you don't get a confirmation of your account within 24 hours, please email me ( graham - at - wellho - dot - net )to let me know so that I can pick out your application and make sure it goes through.

Coffee Shop Admin, Vice Chair of Melksham Rail User Group, and on the board of TravelWatch SouthWest.
Do you have something you would like to add to this thread, or would you like to raise a new question at the Coffee Shop? Please [register] (it is free) if you have not done so before, or login (at the top of this page) if you already have an account - we would love to read what you have to say!

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 ...
