Hi all

I'm running this poll to find out what people think of the current weekend service on the Reading to Basingstoke line. I use this line regularly on the weekend and every GWR (Great Western Railway) and XC (Cross Country Trains (franchise)) service has been packed with the vast majority of people alighting at Reading. Do you think there should be more trains running on the weekend? After the poll expires, I plan to contact GWR and see what they can do. Thanks for your vote in advance.
