    Unfortunately, it doesn't suprise me - the NR BPLAN dataset is peppered with errors.

    Edmondson tickets at preserved railways?

    The East Lancashire Railway had them when buying tickets from the booking office in Bury. This was pre-covid though, so may have changed in the intervening period.

    Tokenless Block

    At the risk of going a bit over 'rulesy', here's how I understand it. Rulebook module S5 outlines all the occasions when a train can pass a signal at danger. It specifically mentions passing a signal at danger for shunting purposes, but only where there is no signal provided for the movement...

    Tokenless Block

    Rainford signal box has a single token machine for both Knowsley and Kirkby. Trains to Kirkby collect the token from the signaller at Rainford and return it on the way back. There's an auxiliary token machine at Dale Lane for trains to Knowsley, so that they can lock-in, and allow the passenger...

    Tokenless Block

    Tokenless Block

    This is a superb resource! Clearly a lot of work has gone into this! One minor issue I've found, is for NW6015 (WKL2). Between Rainford and Kirkby, including the freight stub to at Dale Lane, is ETB and not as shown NTS.

    Tram start time from Beckenham Junction

    The first tram of the day, does indeed depart at 05:25. But that is formed of a journey that departs Therapia Lane at 04:42. It may be of interest, that back in 2010, the first tram from Beckenham Junction was at the later time of 05:35. Full timetable...

    May 2022 Timetable Changes

    Since the timetable change, all Northern services to/from Ellesmere Port have been cancelled, with the exception of the one afternoon return trip on Wednesday 18th. I can see these reliability issues resulting in a few headline (low usage) figures when the relevant station usage statistics are...

    A new mileage search facility

    Thank you both - well spotted! I'll have to admit to not making the map myself. It's the same map as used in the Route Coverage thread. However, I'll have a perusal for a more up to date and copyright free map.

    A new mileage search facility

    You're very correct, it does include the Marches line between South Wales and Chester. I've uploaded a map, which will update as coverage grows, so it's possible to see the areas covered. MAP

    A new mileage search facility

    Hopefully it's alright to post this in here. Although, if not, feel free to remove... I've recently been working on creating some railway mileage search software. It's primary purpose is so it can be incorporated into other projects, and there's still a bit of polishing required, but in the...

    Closure of Teesside Airport station

    Earlier in the week, and possibly earlier, there was a notice on Northern's Journey Check about the closure of Teesside Airport station. Unfortunately, it now seems to have disappeared.

    Trivia: Greatest service level difference between weekday and Sunday

    Should stations with a significantly better Sunday service be accepted, I'd nominate Hawarden Bridge. 7 trains Monday to Saturday, 20 on a Sunday.
