I have had an interest in Railways for as long as I can remember. I am a member of a number of heritage railways and actively volunteer at 2 of them. I enjoy all types of railways, real life, model and simulations. I started RailAdvent in 2014 and am the main editor of the site.
  • point of English grammar :- station names don’t need an article in front. Ever.
    You insist on getting it wrong, so when are you going to improve?

    Only non native speakers slap articles in front of nouns. I taught English abroad and I know where this originates.

    I can do a far better job than you people. When finished, it even looks and sounds like English.

    The other thing that really gets my goat is the unwanted plethora of capital letters.

    Why? Did you ever learn English at school?

    What is the matter with your brain? I hope no one is paying you to write this rubbish.
