    ...and again, I will get ahead of the requests by creating the track basher's report thread for the year.

    Gerard's Bridge Junction to Golborne Junction. Both directions - and completely unintended as well!

    Ordsall Chord - both directions. This, at least, was a planned move.

    Ash around to Aldershot and then Aldershot to Ascot.

    That's the whole of southern England completed except for a few peak only curves.

    Living in Hemel Hempstead, I've now got to travel and my nearest line to bash is either Ebbw Vale or Skeggy Branches.

    I've now cleared all of the Northern Rail network in just under a year, save for Stockport to Staly - this one may prove tricky...
