From 2005 through 2008, I wrote a daily blog specific to the Save the Train campaign and in tidying up documents and saving for the future, I have archives a complete set of posts into the Coffee Shop archive at http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_blog_archive.pdf - and that is a whitelisted document so it's available there to everyone.

Various generations of home pages for Save the Train are as follows:
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_001.pdf - Save the train, final front page - Mar 2010
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_002.pdf - Save the train, front page to Mar 2010 - Mar 2009
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_003.pdf - Save the train, very early front page - Oct 2004
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_004.pdf - Save the train, early front page - Nov 2005
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_006.pdf - Save the train, our case in a letter - 2 Oct 2005
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_007.pdf - Save the train, ORR letter giving us data - Jan 2006
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_008.pdf - Save the train, about the web site person - Feb 2006
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/stt_wa_009.pdf - Save the train, case for a service above spec - 21 Apr 2006

By mirroring the pages on The Coffee Shop, we have made them searchable in the document mirror search at http://www.firstgreatwester.info/mirror to come up in context with other documents we hold from other sources.

From 2005 through 2008, I wrote a daily blog specific to the Save the Train campaign and in tidying up documents and saving for the future, I have archives a complete set of posts into the Coffee Shop archive ...

And I moved on from that specialist blog to "The Horse's Mouth" of around 4,500 articles over a dozen years. I have  been archiving transport-relevant ones to the Coffee Shop mirror.
 
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/Z501.pdf - Public Transport, Rail - 2006 to 2018
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/Z511.pdf - Public Transport, Road - 2006 to 2016
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/Z531.pdf - Public Transport, Walk and Cycle - 2008 to 2013

Amazing to look back at all that writing, and how much remains relevant today too, and to avoid flooding you, I have just listed 3 of the 9 archive files uploaded. The ones done today are whitelisted to be available in public as well as to members, and the are all in the document search system too - search for Warminster, just for example, at http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/mirror/?search=Warminster and you'll find a wide variety of documents located ranging from my blog articles to posters, timetables, DfT service level commitment and consultant's reports on the future of rail in Wiltshire.

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 ...
