Thanks, Barry, for putting me right. I'd forgotten all about (how could I?) the old Didcot, Newbury & Southampton line, a very useful cross-country link. Thanks a lot, Dr. Beeching, you did the country a great service with many roads now rapidly reaching total grid-lock; but then you were working for Ernest Marples, the then Minister for Transport (Marples-Ridgeway Construction building motorways all over the place!) Could they get away with something like that today, I wonder?
