    On train staff only, the RA indicator even dispatches the train as far as I am aware.

    I think there’s a bit of sarcasm in the previous post.

    I think we can be certain that if any money was to be made from these stations then they would be open.

    It depends on how it's done - in principle it's a good idea, but there are too many rural roads where there's been no thought given to visibility.

    Often, the opposite. Visibility is being deliberately obscured in many places to slow approach speeds down.

    That also happens, but the examples I had in mind are where untamed foliage leaves drivers on a minor road near blind as to the traffic on the major road.

    I respect the fact that the DSR is a real railway, and not people playing trains. It serves a transport function, providing the customer with what he wants (admittedly at a price, but there is nothing wrong with makinghonest money!), and I found the staff perfectly polite and customer focussed.
