Hi, new members!  Smiley

This is addressed particularly to those who have joined this forum as members recently - although anyone who joined some time ago, but has yet to post their first message, is included!

I'm delighted that we continue to see people joining us as members here - at least one every couple of days - and that's really great, at a time when the service provided by our local Train Operating Company is 'far less worse' than it was a year ago, for example!

And on that note, I'd like to encourage / remind those members that your views will be welcome here: please do think about posting your first message soon.  We in the admin team have a policy of acknowledging, and thanking, everyone on their first post - and I'm not convinced that we've missed one yet!  Grin

We do look forward to hearing from you 'Newbies' - please don't be put off if the software calls you that: just post a few messages and you'll soon become a 'Jr. Member'!

If anyone has any problems posting, or isn't sure about how to do so - please, just contact one of the admin team.

William Huskisson MP 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.

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 ...
