The next edition of Rail has just dropped through my letterbox (on sale Wednesday). It includes an article on the TRansWilts proposals. I've had a chance to read it yet but I do notice that a certain Mr Ellis is mentioned. When is the signing session Graham?
Ah - any signings should come a week after
the appropriate service is implemented. For the first week, we'll all be too busy making sure that things work right and that there's good press publicity to make for an explosion of passengers. Then we get down to the stern and ongoing task of making sure that any little issues are resolved in a positive way, and that there's ongoing information and publicity available to ensure that the services are a success in terms of sentiment, commerce, and passenger numbers. That may be where a signing would help - but I must warn you of a comment made by a friend who wrote a book - "I've signed so many of these that the valuable ones are now the unsigned copies" he said
