UK’s National Rail Shuts Down Free Timetable App

JHaselden points to this “sad tale of one developer’s trying time with the National Rail, the owners of the UK’s train timetable data, which flies in the face of the recent assertion of Chris Scoggins (Chief Executive, National Rail Enquiries) in Wired recently stating that they had ‘opened up’ their data, ‘often free of charge.’” This is a good case for keeping your old emails handy; the app’s author uses cut-and-paste to excellent effect in his correspondence with the rail system.
