Our "How Stuff Works" board is provided for members who choose to be "Transport Scholars".  It includes some fairly technical stuff which many members / guests might not want in their feeds, and also a few topics which for various reasons (emotions, copycat risks, personal interaction revealed) should not be public readable.

In the early days of "How Stuff Works" I flagged posts there from time to time on a public board, and invited people to like my post or message me if they wanted to be added there.  Now is a good time for such a further reminder / opportunity, especially considering the topic title of "question for rail professionals".  Promotion / addition to the board is not automatic - but very pleased to add extra members there.

So - if the link in the original post blocks you, please like this post (I will monitor up to and including 10th June) and I will add you in.

A week later, we have had eleven useful replies in our "how stuff works" area - at http://www.passenger.chat/25075 - thank you to everyone who's posted there. And we promoted "Modern Day Slave" (MDS) to a transport scholar so that (s)he could read and respond there.   Rather sadly, no follow up from MDS and forum logs tell me that (s)he hasn't been logged in, which would be necessary to view what's been written outside the public realm.   It is, of course, possible that 'partner' is a member and transport scholar here and has read the thread and responses.  Flagging it up here in public as it would be nice to know if the inputs were useful to the enquirer, and also to thank (from an admin viewpoint) everyone who's spend their time contributing. Even if the original poster has gone away, the responses form a useful resource for the future on this important topic which we can refer people to, just as certain other of such topics do.

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 ...
