Me too. It'll make a change to be considered as an aid, rather than a problem on stations. I've always been as helpful and unobtrusive as I can ever since I can remember. At Reading in 1986-ish, I ran around the station like a lunatic in order to get two girls apprehended - they'd stolen a bloke's two suitcases when he used the phone box on Platform 5. We CAN be useful!

I agree with previous comments, this idea should go national. Railway buffs are already equiped with observational skills and realise when a situation is suspicious or not right.

Seems to have gone off the radar

I think it will give us credibility when hanging around stations

Let me know if this is extended nationally as I am in York.
Its a good idea and would improve the standing of responsible rail enthusiasts with the rail industry.
Is there anything we on this forum can do to help move this idea along?
