HI Toby,
I think that the problem is that you have not specified using Rail and
travel in the model statement, but rather are still using x1 and x2.
It also does not realize that you want x1 to be a factor. Try
x1=factor(c(1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6))
x2=c(55,53,54,26,37,32,78,91,85,92,100,96,49,51,50,80,85,83)
eg1=data.frame(x1,x2);
colnames(eg1)=c("Rail","travel");
eg1gd=groupedData(travel~1|Rail,data=eg1)
print(eg1gd)
x11();
print(plot(eg1gd))
femodel=lm(x2~x1-1,data=eg1gd)
femodel=lm(travel~Rail-1,data=eg1gd)
summary(femodel)
Cheers,
Hank
