    I was on the Dearne Valley stopper this morning, and was going from Ulleskelf to Moorthorpe and then back up to Leeds.

    Playing about with NRES, a journey from Sherburn-in-Elmet to South Elmsall, it suggests Sherburn-Swinton-Doncaster-South Elmsall. Whereas a quicker journey is Sherburn-Moorthorpe then the 20 minute walk to South Elmsall.

    Does NRES have any walking journeys between stations not in the same station group in the database?

    Windsor & Eton Riverside - Windsor & Eton Central is one that springs to mind.

    I don't think Yeovil is a group any more and Ash Vale - North Camp used to come up often as an interchange.

    I've seen walking routes from Harringay West to Harringay Green Lanes and they're not a group

    I'm amused by the notion of someone thinking it's a good idea to walk from Pen Mill to Yeovil Junction: it's two miles down a tree-lined country lane with no footpath. (Luckily there are buses between Yeovil and Stoford that one could catch if one absolutely had to make this interchange.)

    I don't imagine there would be the passenger numbers to run a shuttle train on the YYP Branch between PM & Jcn but I guess it is still used for driver route knowledge retention & diversion's Necessitated by engineering work and train service perturbation I guess you could go to Salisbury via Castle Cary & Westbury.

    Yeah, if you ask NRE for Sherborne to Thornford it asks you to change at Salisbury and Cary (interestingly if you ask for Sherborne to Yetminster—I forgot the order of the stations when I checked—it sends you via Southampton and Dorchester for some reason).

    I have done it on the bus though which runs every 30mins IRC so not to bad.

    Yeah, the Southwest Coaches 68—IIRC it's a rather new contrivance; the NRTT still says something along the lines of "there aren't any buses between the two; I wouldn't recommend it".

    Isn't there a negative easement prohibiting people from going via Pen Mill with a ticket to Junction and v/v?

    Burnley, St Albans and Windsor had walking distance maps in the National Rail Timetable, presumably NRES still shows them.

    Is there anywhere that should have, but doesn't.

    Traveline has, in the past, recommended disembarking at Edinburgh Park and walking to South Gyle.

    NRE, recommends service to Haymarket then back.

    NRE suggests a walk between New Mills Central & New Mills Newtown and I seem to recall mention on here that they are not grouped.

    Think you are right there.

    Yep there is.
    It also appears that in some cases transferring between the two Yeovil stations is mandatory
