Dear Network Rail Limited,

On a previous version of your website, the downloadable spreadsheet of level crossing information included an 'ID' column. For example, the crossing named "4 Lane Ends" in Farington had ID 8672.

However, the current version of the downloadable spreadsheet does not contain an ID column, or any other unique identifier. Given that names of crossings are not unique, and other data may have changed in the meantime, that makes it difficult to match data in the current version to data in the previous version. Or indeed, even to maintain consistency over different versions of the current data.

Please could you, therefore, provide me with a version of your current spreadsheet, but with an additional column containing the ID, as used in the previous version. And, if you have a new, and different, unique identifier for each level crossing, please could you also include that as well.

I hope I've explained this well enough for you to be able to identify the information I need. But, if not, please feel free to ask for clarification.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Goodge
