Today I ended up in a pub 100 meters and across the road from Blackwater railway station.

It's large screen TVs wasn't showing any sport but had still adverts for local businesses scrolling on it and the live departures for the railway station.

Has anybody else seen this in other pubs that are not on railway land or immediately next door?

Hamilton Hall at Liverpool Street has boards in it too, but then it is part of the station so won't really count.

Wigan Central, a micropub in Wigan, has arrival and departure screens for both Wigan NW and Wigan Wallgate, inside the venue.

Yes, the one underneath Wigan North Western has departure boards which are useful.

The ones in Leeds Weatherspoons seem to have been removed for some reason, which is a bit of a backwards step.

There's also a pub at Shipley next to the station which shows live departures although I cannot remember its name :oops:

The Knights Templar (Spoons) close to Bristol Temple Meads used to have one but I think it was later removed.

McDonald's at Woking, about 100 yds outside station, has live train and bus departures.

The Prince of Wales, over the road from Didcot Parkway starting certainly used to have them, and may still do

"The Great Western" opposite Swindon station had them when I was last in there (albeit some time ago)

The 'GW' opposite Swindon station still has its Live Departures screen. At least it did yesterday!
