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
South Humberside Main Line
Cleethorpes to Barton-upon-Humber
Brighouse branch of Caldervale line
Another small PSUL covered on Saturday night with the Inverness station avoider line between Rose Street & Welshs Bridge from the Kyle - Elgin service
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!
I've managed to complete the Northern franchise network again after ticking off Oxenholme to Windermere.
My new track from yesterday is all on the Metrolink and is as followed.
East Didsbury-Trafford Bar
Trafford Bar-Navigation Road
St Werburgh's Road-Manchester Airport
Cleared a bit last Saturday.
Out to Rochester via Bexley and back via Bexleyheath clears North Kent.
Sutton to Epsom Downs.
The bottom end of the Bakerloo (Elephant and Castle to Waterloo)
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
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!
Today's load from my Lancs day ranger.
Huyton-Wigan North Western
Euxton Jcn-Salford Crescent
Rochdale Railway station-Rochdale town centre on Metrolink
Rochdale railway station-Central park on Metrolink

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.
FINALLY got Hitchin Flyover done today!
Some oddments in and around London in the last few days.
Greenford to North Acton Junction (LU Central Line)
Mitre Bridge Junction to Willesden High Level Junction
Broxbourne to Hertford East
Acton Town to Heathrow T23, T4 and T5 (LU)
Here's my latest route map.
Another PSUL done in the shape of the Manningtree North to East curve (ie heading to Harwick International from Ipswich).
Updated version following last week's ALR.
I look forward to your trip report!
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.
On the 1C99 covering route south of Edinburgh at this minute.
My latest coverage is in red.
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.
