If occasional use is all you need.

Just go to, use your MS ID (or create one) and you can use the apps in the browser free.

The browser versions are sometimes limited in the advanced functionality, but may suit your needs.

Seconded :y

As for trains, Trainline is ok, but remember to play the system. if you know there's a choice of routes, you can plan them as individual sectors to go via a particular place rather than via the default 'Google/Trainline' suggestion. ie by choosing a short local journey for the first leg, you can travel earlier without paying a premium for the whole journey  ;)

This can seem really convoluted, but the railway companies do this deliberately, because it's competition init ::)

Doesnt it just
Last time I needed Chester to London (via Crewe obvs) was about 300 on one ticket
or bought as individual tickets...
Chester to Crewe - about 15
Crewe to Euston - about 17

Talking of which... The latest member is another Audi Driver from Dubai  ;D

Not a crime in itself, we are not that draconian.
You know what's coming though  ;)


We can also see a little more detail than you.
If they were going to spam, it would likely be done by now.

We do not normally 'try and convict' people before they commit a crime.

A report (per batch) helps, we tend to see em fairly quickly but does help.

Plenty of suspicious users never do anything, but I know what you mean about spotting in advance.  tend to get the benefit of the doubt.

Just popping in again.  Thanks for the welcomes!  Happy New Year all.  What a strange time we're going through?  I hope everyone's coping as best they can?  I'm just browsing through the forum and I'm amazed at the amount of information here.  Someone's (Jimbob?) put some serious effort in to link all those guides in the maintenance section.  Keep up the good work chaps!

Thanks for noticing, was a bit of a task  :y

Saw him at Anfield with Take That & Rick Astley a year and a half or so ago. Fantastic atmosphere.

More or less reliable than Solarwinds... Discuss  ::)

I need to update our Solarwinds regardless, but luckily we are not affected by that lovely hack!
