Comments on the song:

"How wonderful, what a fantastic video, and song. Thank you for sharing and I will indeed share with my colleagues." (a GWR colleague)

"Nothing compares to ... Pilning! " (Geoff Marshall, AllTheStations Project)

"Amazing. Great work." (Pilning Gamemaster)

"If this doesn’t make Network Rail put the footbridge, I [can't think] of anything else that would!" (a random panda)

From 6 January 2018, GWR replaced our increasingly-popular 13:34 service with one at 15:34. This is welcome in one way as it allows people two more hours in Bristol (or wherever else we are going) - but we had urged GWR to retain the 13:34 as well. This would enable Pilning passengers to make a later start to our journey than the 08:33, and crucially would allow visitors from elsewhere to arrive on the 13:34 and depart on the 15:34, maybe enjoying a lunchtime drink and a meal at the Plough Inn a few minutes' walk away. We are campaigning to get the 13:34 stop restored at the next timetable change in May - if you agree, please email

Thank you :)
