Staines has officially been renamed to Staines-upon-Thames as of 14:00 hrs today.

Have SWT any plans to rename the railway station in recognition or will it remain as just old and simple "Staines"?

I imagine there is arguments for and against a rename. A similar example is Kingston-Upon-Hull station that is accepted both officially and unofficially as just "Hull".

Just to add insult to injury, I think it would of been a great idea to twin the newly renamed town with the Republic of Wadiya! ;) :lol:
