I understand you want to start a site but what is your USP because there is already Rail News, Rail Staff, News Now, quite a few forums and online magazines.

You really need to flesh out because you look like an upstart trying to sprint before you can crawl. Run a few weeks on your own then come back. It is a lot of commitment to keep a site like this live and up to date (believe me, I do it)

By the way, the bottom of the page colours look revolting, please can you change them?

Anyone else seen the link to some site called "Rail UK Forums"? What could that be? :lol::D:lol::p:lol::D:lol:

Actually, if everyone else is starting to set up on their own again, I might have to give it another go. See if we get any further than mind-mapping this time!

I'm going to drop mine on the Forum at the end of the year, so there'll only be two more installments most likely. I may give a proper blog a go though, posting about lots of stuff other than railways a la my Facebook page (although I do put some railway stuff up there).
