If you are reading as a guest ... please consider joining as a member.   It's free!  Once you have registered with the Coffee Shop and your registration has been approved, you can log in.  Within the registration, you're asked to agree to our terms of access (see http://www.passenger.chat/1761 )  which are designed to keep the coffee shop legal, decent, honest, friendly and on topic.

When logged in as a new member ...
* The forum will keep track of the posts you have (and haven't) read so that you can navigate to new stuff much more easily
* The main "Read about the Forum" link and menu will be replaced by a "Recent Posts" link to take you direct to the latest new content
* You will be able to read the "Member Services" board including links to our "Tuesday Club" zoom meetings which you will be able to join
* You will be able to post a reply onto almost any existing thread you can read (just a few are locked for clarify)
* You will be able to start a new thread on almost all of the boards ("Meet the Manager" and "Member Services" are reply only)
* You will have access to the personal message system which allows you to write messages to other members and lets them message you
* You will be able to add to the forum calendar
* You will be able to take part in polls
* You will be able to turn off the "Chat" icon should you wish, and expand / contract forum categories
* You will be able to notify the moderator team if you feel the contents of a post should be brought to their attention
* You will be able to email a thread, with a comment, from our system (equivalent of a share)
* You will be able to (and are encouraged to) update your profile and provide an avatar

You'll find guidance about posting on help pages and more specific data in our Member Services area once you're logged in as a member, and you'll find our moderator team and other established members happy to help you as you find your feet.

Once you have posted a few times, you'll find that other areas open up to you - "Frequent Posters", "Rumour Mill" and "And Also" for things shared between friends or not yet confirmed. And there's also an area for "Transport Scholars" where things can get pretty technical, and where we talk about delicate / emotive subjects in an informed and dispassionate way.  Transport Scholars is available on application.  These additional areas contain just a small proportion of the Coffee Shop posts, though, so please don't expect an explosion of new data as you reach them.

Grahame, did you mean your subject heading to be "Reading as a guest"? I don't think one can post unless one is a member?

Yes, I did!   Thanks for that - I have just changed it from the impossible (I hope we have the security right) "posting as a guest"

That's right, isn't it? If not logged on you only see external images linked to.

Yes - I have just checked that, and you're right.   I spend so much of my time logged in - I'm rarely a guest at my own party and I had missed that.  In putting this thread together, it's done me real good to look around when incognito.

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 ...
