Hi,
 
well we're cooking on gas now  over 100 responses - good stuff. Thanks to everyone who has responded. Keep them coming.
 
I've just been told that work is closed until Monday - cos of the weather - I've done all my plane repairs, and I'm waiting for a kit to arrive. So nothing to build  and nothing better to do. At present I'm plotting little red and blue squares on maps of the UK showing the disribution of different modes. I'll put these up as part of the analysis when we get everything in.
