In view of the number of posts which have been made on the Coffee Shop forum relating to this issue, I've now moved and merged many of them into this new board - for clarity and ease of future reference, as always.  Smiley

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

I hope as new Data Manager I am not going to unsettle established expectations.

Grahame has changed the board title at my suggestion. As you would see in my entry in the Member Roll call that I work in Public Health with an interest in sustainable (the trains. buses & taxis bit) and active travel which is this bit. The emphasis from my point of view is travel, not sport. And the active transport can include walking, cycling, running (people do commute that way) and horse riding.

It is probably obvious from my posts that my prime means of transport is a Brompton folding bike, but this should include "normal" bikes, tandems, hand bikes, recumbants, and trikes. The last four on the list are sadly under-served by the rail operators but can be an essential mode of transport for the disabled and those of restricted mobility.

More broadly multi-modal travel can include active and sustainable transport, which raises the issue of connections that have been discussed elsewhere in the forum.

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 ...
