Technical Information on this Web Site
By January 2021, many of the pages on this web site had not been updated for several years and unfortunately had garnered many broken links over
time and there was some information that was no longer relevant. A major overhaul of this site was very necessary and is now ongoing.
Call us for free, if in the UK, and we would love a chat with you!
You can request a Call Back from the team putting these web pages together. Not always possible to call you immediately, but you will get a return call sometime! The use of the bottom is entirely free to you. The authentication code you have to enter is tiresome, but necessary to prevent nuisance calls. It might not be possible to call you back immediately, but you will get a response as soon possible.
Please tell others of the web site
Please spread the word of this site's existence; it would be very sad if the hours spent in creating and maintaining the site had no passengers! Can we have a link on your web site please? We do have a counter on the Home Page that increments each time the page opens, so keep an eye on that bearing in mind that on the 19th February 2021 it stood at 3103.
Uncollected fares can be paid here
Your Webmaster doesn't know how many hours has been put in to research and create this web site, but it is conservatively considered to be around a thousand hours. Then there is the yearly hosting and domain name registration fees to be paid of around £70 per year, which has come out of my back pocket. If only there was a way to collect a few pennies from each visitor to buy a pint every now and then, that would go down really well!
Maybe there is. If you have derived pleasure for visiting this site today, then click on the 'Pay Now' button in the image above. Overwrite the box called "Price per item" with the amount of your donation and press the Continue button. The minimum sum that can be transmitted is 50p. Don't worry if you have not got a PayPal account; there is the option to use a Credit or Debit Card. Cheers everyone!
