  1. REF: On The Cameras Today

    Would it be possible to separate the exceptional trains running from the everyday ones.
    I find it difficult sometimes to pick out the really interesting and miss them.
    A separate section preferably or different Colour would do to fulfil this function.

    Regards

    Mike Stone

    1. Hi Mike. As the person that puts together the notable moves, I am probably best to field this one.

      The issue I have is time, I’m a full time parent and carer, so that comes into the reckoning, but the main issue is what one person classes as ‘notable’ and what the next person doesn’t.

      I can’t really draw a line between ‘Class 37 light engine moves’ being notable and ‘Class 66 light engine moves’ not being notable. Everyone has their own view, but we have either all or none. The same applies with the sleeper moves, they always prove very popular so they have been included, but again it’s an ‘all or nothing’.

      I’m always open to constructive opinions on the best way to present the notable moves, but time has to come into it. I’d love to post it all to in a spreadsheet that can be filtered by time/TOC/location etc but I just don’t have the time to do that every day, it’s already an hour to an hour and a half job as it is.

      If I can improve the overall feel of the notable moves posts then I am more than willing to listen to suggestions, if it works for me and everyone in general then I am happy to change how I produce the lists.

      Cheers,
      CSK

  2. It would be very useful for the notable trains ( On The Cameras Today ) as shown now but sorted into time sequence. This would enable us to more easily check the trains for the time period and location relevant to when we are able to be viewing our screens.
    This would save a lot of time trawling through the mass of data that will not be relevant.
    Thanks for all your hard work to provide the list, it is appreciated!

  3. Dear Jamie,
    Thanks for prompt response.I fully appreciate the kind of problems that you face in altering the format..
    Not knowing where you are starting from I can only make Blind Guesses.

    Breaking it down it appears to comprise 5 Sections –

    Light engines diesel/electric
    Network rail test train
    Steam – light engine/trains/all
    Caledonian Sleeper/Night Riviera
    Anything Else

    If it were simple to Colour each Entry / Section I would suggest this Route to differentiate between them.

    Have you ever looked at VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) – It is the programming language of Excel.

    I once had a setup (many years ago) to prepare a Daily Newsletter from text Pages. About 120 lines of instructions – one click and

    done ! Took about a Week to set up & test.

    TAKE A LOOK AT – https://www.excel-easy.com/vba.html

    Regards

    1. I’m not overly tech savvy but I will put this to our more technically minded admin to have a chew over. As it stands the notable moves are done in Pages on my Mac, then copy & pasted to our WordPress page. I am not sure if text colour is copied over in that process, plus again there is the time factor of colour coding everything. I will look into this though and see if there is any way it can be done without looking too messy.
