A certain lack of synchronisation

Bus and railway integration is a subject that could be discussed for hours and hours but I am raising it because of two services in the Lake District: the 505 and the 516. For one thing, it would be nice to see them start from Windermere train station but what would be better is if the service timings were more useful to those coming in for a day out in the fells. In fact, you can have the latter without the former and I would be happy with that. However, one does get the underlying suspicion that timings are designed for visitors staying in the area or locals, neither of which are things that I decry. In fact, I respect the right of local businesses to gain from an influx of winter visitors, even if my excursions tend to take the form of a day trip.
