    Another lorry through the barriers at Manningtree

    I still think there's something odd about this. The white van in the bottom left appears to do a sharp brake as though the lights have only just come on. Even if they haven't and assuming they weren't on when the green lorry crossed the same line, there only 7 seconds between the back of the...

    Plans for the existing Euston station post HS2?

    If the tunnel through to Euston Square is completed, will the existing Tube station be renamed simply "Euston" as it will essentially be one station?

    Trivia: Nearest station you haven't used?

    You only ever want to board trains there, never alight (unless you're immediately getting into another vehicle to drive out the town) :D

    Diagram map of the whole UK network

    I have lots of ideas, once the map is complete, to make it interactive in various ways. Part of the reason I'm struggling to make the decision about different routes/lines is because those ideas will be much, much harder - if not impossible - with those included. Ah, I see now. I missed Yarm...

    Diagram map of the whole UK network

    Thanks. I'm still deciding how best to show the map - whether it's by service or not. I did actually have the Northallerton/Yarm/Eaglescliffe line on the map originally but deleted it last night as I was thinking of not showing any "short cuts". Main reason for that is when I get down to the...

    Diagram map of the whole UK network

    Still very much a work in progress - working on the last bits of Scotland right now. No significance to angles or space between stations (except where it would majorly mess with physical geography).

    Do workplace parking charges increase rail usage?

    So you'd charge visitors at the new deterrent rate too?

    Do workplace parking charges increase rail usage?

    As a few other people have suggested, this won't work in practice. Take my home town of Kettering as an example. The hospital is a 20-30 minute walk from the train station. Both car parks charge (hospital £15 for 8 or more hours, station £11.50 a day). If the hospital car park was free, by...
