    I've cleared Stoke-on-Trent P3 and associated crossovers thanks to a trip to Manchester last week.

    I've attempted one here.

    It's probably not complete but I've been honest and have only shaded blue lines I know I've definitely been on.

    A bit embarrassing, I'll admit, but there you have it.

    The ones to the south and west I did when I was really young, those are just faint memories.

    WHAT I WANT TO DO

    York to Scarborough
    Harrogate Line
    South Humberside Main Line
    Cleethorpes to Barton-upon-Humber
    Brighouse branch of Caldervale line

    All UK tram track now covered, having done Victoria to Exchange Square in Manchester yesterday. Bull Street to Grand Central done last week.

    Now awaiting the much-anticipated Trafford Centre line in Manchester, and the extensions to Parkgate for the tram-train trial in Sheffield. Bring it on!

    Few bits and bobs scored at quail level recently.

    9th June 2016:
    Trip out to score 37668 on the SSE resulted in a crossover at Church Fenton and York Holgate U&DGL being scored.

    18 June 2016:
    Deltic to Tweedbank today with 3 bits of quail level track scored and 4 full bits of track shown on Baker. Notably being the Edinburgh sub and the full Borders route.
    Grice scores were Chevington Down Loop and Prestonpans UPL

    19 June 2016:
    Must be the last volunteer to do it but finalllyyyyyyyyyyyyy got round to scoring the NYMR platform at Whitby....

    03 July 2016:
    Can't really go into uber detail on this but I travelled on the TPE 170 Farewell tour with the BLS and scored 28 bits of quail track and 4 new lines!
    New lines were:
    - Chinley East Curve
    - Adwick South Curve
    - Skellow Jn > Applehurst Jn Line
    - Doncaster Avoider

    Notable highlights on Quail level were the sidings and P4 at Cleethorpes as well as a run through Peak Forest to Buxton XYZ and a variety of loops, goods lines and crossovers!

    Thats 223 Quail level track scores for the year and 57 new lines!

    Little bit of baker coverage was added yesterday with the eastbound freight line flyover around Bishton between Newport & Severn Tunnel Junction.

    Only other bit highlighted in the last couple weeks is the chord towards Toton from Attenborough on a diverted HST.

    I did a NE a couple of weeks ago and knobbled a few chords.
    The Ferrybridge one on the 22:00 KGX-NCL
    Hambleton W-S on the Sat Skipton-KGX.
    The chord onto the Selby line from York via Sherburn-I-E.
    I also got the through road at Wakefield Westgate, I was on a Sheff-Lds 158 and we got diverted, reversing at Kirkgate. Very rare that one, not even listed on the PSUL site.

    Is there a more up to date template with new lines added since 2008 and lines no longer used since the same time?

    Think I have everything available on the map bar Oxford Parkway to Oxford and the loop south of Edinburgh which I do not think has a passenger service.

    On this year's ALR I got Tweedbank, Wolverhampton to Walsall, Stockport to Stalybridge, Yeovil Pen Mill to Yeovil Junction, Ebbw Vale Parkway to Ebbw Vale Town.

    I think the only passenger service booked to go via the Edinburgh Suburban line is the weekday 21:05 Glasgow to Edinburgh XC service, i.e. this one
    http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/C70011/2016/07/19/advanced

    Sounded like a very productive ALR, and I guess you will be making the short trip up towards Oxford Parkway come December time when the line reopens :)

    Thanks for the info on Edinburgh and yes off to Oxford in December.

    The ALR was surprising in that the trains were very full and none were late enough for a delay repay. This has not happened to me before on an ALR and I have done one each year since 2010.

    Have I correctly identified that you need no currently available mainline routes? If so then congratulations!

    Did the Leckwith Loop Monday and Ebbw Vale yesterday so the only major bit I need to do apart from some PSUL stuff is the Borders Line.

    Thanks! :)

    I've not long finished it, quite a long one too compared to previous efforts! I was going to do the formatting of Part 1 so it could be posted tonight, but as I'm heading over to a friend's for the night shortly, I'll be formatting and posting Part 1 of my ALR Diary tomorrow. :)

    In my never ending quest for world domination (OK, slight exaggeration!) I've added the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway to my coverage of the UK. I've also a few new bits of microgricing, although I was surprised to discover I've already done all the available moves into and out Norwich. I was also surprised to score bits at Dolphin Junction and just west of Twyford on the GWML, although my Trackmaps for the Western Region is out of date so I still haven't got the new Reading layout marked up yet. Something to aim to do before 2017!

    More worldwide coverage is coming soon, with metro and tram coverage in Vienna in 3 weeks time. In terms of the UK, I'll be adding Metrolink's Second City Crossing to the atlas as soon as possible, however there's nothing else I need that I intend to get covered for ages. Something else there I've got on my Prep for 2017 list, noting all the PSUL moves around the country that I need and going all out for getting them in.
