I'm not sure where the precursors of the ideas came from, but the actual
plan came together at a barbequeue at James Duncan's house in Highams Park.

(On a day when One Railway decided to challenge us all by replacing trains
with buses, to ensure that only the truly determined could make it there.
One Railway is now National Express East Anglia, and the website certainly
seems a bit easier to use, but I've no idea whether they are any more
competent at rail replacement bus services than One were(n't). Southeastern,
in comparison, are actually quite good at it)
