      Something like that could be used to specify different frequencies
      with time of year.<br>

          > Thanks all - some great suggestions. To clarify, I'm not

          routing engines.<br>
          > <br>
          > Based on Richard M's and Janko's suggestions, I'm tempted
          to use:<br>
          > <br>
          > journeys=4/hour<br>
          > journeys=2 or journeys=2/day<br>
          > journeys=on_demand<br>
          > <br>
          > to indicate, respectively, four journeys in each
          direction per day; two<br>
          > journeys in each direction per day; and the sort of ferry
          where you go to<br>
          > the bank, wave the ferryman down, and he comes to take
          you across.<br>
          > <br>
          > That avoids any confusion about "frequency" (a tram might
          have both<br>
