Looks like Great Western Railway (GWR (Great Western Railway)) may be testing their TV 769s next week, running between Maidenhead and Didcot. Rumour has it they might appear on the Bourne End (peak service too long to get to Marlow) and the Henley branch as well as Gatwick .

Hi this is just a poll, for fun to gather opinions on Transport for wales new class 769 fleet.
The first two options you’ve given, ie yes or no, are not “thoughts or opinions”. 

For this sort of thing you really need to think more about your possible answers, which should be more like “great, good, average, poor, hopeless, don’t care”.

Having run - err - dozens of polls here on the Coffee Shop, would it help if I posted up a few notes about what I have learned makes an effective poll, perhaps in "News and Assistance".   Might encourage a few more members to try polls and help them get useful results. ?
