We've started 2021 by looking at the various challenges facing railways in the South and the opportunities for improving train frequencies, journey times and service reliability. Our observations and proposals are set out in a Briefing Paper on the subject, which you can read at https://www.railfuture.org.uk/display2564

Can you advise further there, Chris, please?  I have included branches which cover GWR (Great Western Railway) stations and I think that brings me in to the east of Slough - just some TfL» (Transport for London - about) / overground overlap and the Greenford Shuttle. Which should I be adding?

The Midlands is an interesting choice for a RailFuture AGM at this time.

Perhaps they could have an Aspiration vs Reality debate.
