    The Community Rail Cafe now has more than a hundred members, and to celebrate we wanted to ask you if there are any new features you would find useful on the site (or if you have any gripes for us to try and fix). 

    We won’t necessarily be able to implement everything, but it would be great to hear what you think.

    It would be great if we could tag people into conversations like you can in facebook- I think this would alert certain people to a topic which they could assist with in a nice simple way. Thanks

    Could we have a section on new franchises please? There isn't an obvious place for discussion on such matters at the moment.

    Hi Stephen - new forum section for new franchises now created. Click 'Post new topic' to be the first on board.

    Hi Ian, it should automatically show a mobile-friendly version when you visit the site on a smartphone (see screenshot below).

    Does the site not display like this for you? Or are there specific things that you want to do on the mobile site but can't?

     Mike, I wear glasses and the text is still too small to read on 4.5" screen - might just be me? Thanks

    Hi Ian, thanks for the feedback. I've just increased the font size of the site (for both desktop and mobile). See how you get on - hope this helps. Hopefully will benefit others too.

    Hi Stephen

    Can you be more specific please?

    For instances, with growing unrest around the network over essentially  who closes doors on trains, we don’t want this forum to either take sides, or get bogged down is an issue that we have little or no influence in.

    Thanks

    Brian

    Hi Brian,

    Sorry my last post was rather cryptic! I was thinking of timetabling matters, particularly services between Christmas & New Year; London Midland are proposing to reduce our service to 2 hourly again.

    Appreciate the need  for the Forum to steer clear over Selective Door Operation!
