Read the instructions on the tin. High speed between a beginning and end point is not possible with stops every few miles, think on, who would want to stop at Stoke? A confused person getting off at Stoke would be even more confused at finding he/she would have to get a 'bus to a place called Hanley that purports to be the city senter, (not my spelling mistake) This , in their infinite wisdom is the spelling the local council came up with, after, no doubt,lengthy erudite discussions.
