    Hello,

    I hope everyone is well. This is my first post on the forums, so here goes. I have made a website which will once it is fully complete, allow you to find the departure boards for a specified time at any of the stations on GWE.

    As a proof of concept I have only done a full day at West Drayton, but if it is popular, then I am happy to add more stations.

    You can find it here: http://www.danielgill.net/gwedepartures/

    Proposed and future additions:
    • Add a clock which will count up with the clock in-game and change the boards once a train departs. The only way to update the boards at present is to press the back button and resubmit the form.
    • Update destinations so that they show final destinations instead of Reading and find relevant calling points.
    • Add more realistic features to the boards by adding scrolling text with the operator name and other information.
    • Adding some other type of boards with ore services on them, like a station would have.
    Please give it a go and let me know what you think. Any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Daniel Gill

    Thanks for your good work. Not sure if I will use this. Can you add track numbers, a least for the larger stations.

    I
    I gave it a try but the page returned a blank screen. I entered 17:00 as the time but it returned a blank screen.
    It is a nice idea.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll see how I can get that done.

    You seem to have come across a bug there, I'll have a look to see what's causing the problem when I get a chance.
