Yes, the level of information provision is very variable across the  
county - the nearest stop to my house has information dated August  
2005! Possibly we should use FixMyStreet to report these to the  
authorities?

I have been adding 'tabletable_case=yes' to indicate that there is  
somewhere to put timetable information, but I have not been indicating  
whether there is any information in it.
