Our Rail News feed has little if any GWR (Great Western Railway) / South West specific stuff on it tonight - and that's a common theme.

From the most popular stories:
Quote
London knife horror as man stabs himself on train at Euston station in front of stunned… Mail Online18:48
Avanti contract extension a ‘slap in the face’ ITV17:29

Railway station's £126m revamp gets under way BBC19:58
Derry trains to depart from new location in Belfast over Halloween weekend Derry Journal16:54

noting that the "revamp" which has no location clue in the title is Darlington.

And from all news in the last 4 hours, little "South West" either:

On the basis that "no news is good news" should we be celebrating, even if the forum is quieter for the lack of local stories?
