They're all alive and kicking over there, although many of them still post on this thread, too.

You really should go take a read over there sometime. They have some very interesting opinions about this thread and some of us on here.....
I tend to check out all 3 (is it lol ?)

Anyway ,I didn't realize there was now a breakaway group/groups ?

Thanks for the reference.

Yep,it seems that suitable 'spot' for the info was up for debate .

I still think FB is the way to go,I really don't think people realize that even with user names on BE ,the questions are just a google away .

I am on a few FB private pages ...works very well

OK I found this listing of a home we could share when we first get back. Tell me what you think?

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-...-16457958.html

We could all chip in.

You will find them on the links I put up earlier. You can't specify non-stop (in fact I don't think there is such a thing), but it does show you how many changes there are on the route so you can choose, plus I think you can Google the route to find the stops (no, I'm sure I found a link on the national rail site itself that showed where the train stopped).
