    Regarding your quail maps, there's a new Eastern Book 2 due out in December. High time seeing as it was 10 years out of date...
    Also due after that will be a new Scotland Book 1 and Western Book 3

    Glad you mentioned that, I'll hold off on the new Eastern book. The new Western one will be most welcome too, the new layout at Reading and Heathrow Airport Junction will hopefully be included. Not so fussed about the Scotland one for now.

    Here's my effort post ALR, forgot to amend the map to include Tweedbank etc, but have added a marker for Oxford Parkway seeing as I still require the bit from there to Oxford!

    I'm not starting a separate thread for Route Uncoverage, but in updsting records I've realised that Basingstoke to Worgret Junction hasn't been traversed! :oops:

    Indeed that was an error on my part. I have indeed cleared that section!

    Doing quite well there :) Some surprising gaps like Lichfield to Aston for example mind!

    Thanks Tech, I'm quite pleased with my progress this year. :)

    I'm hoping to get that section cleared at some point next year, along with the rest of the track I need in the West Midlands.

    That looks like Wales is conquered for you now, good work :D

    Nothing new apart from bits and bobs of micro-gricing here lately. Still not noted the new layout at Reading, and London Bridge's new layout has now been started on but I need to get a diagram for that too.

    Obviously I got some new coverage from Norway in March. I still haven't been up to Manchester to do Second City Crossing either!

    Thanks mate, it was a tough challenge but I've managed to complete nearly all of it. There is the stretch of track that avoids Swansea and Neath I still need to clear though, but I don't know how often services use it. I plan to clear it at some stage this year though.

    Next on my list of lines to clear are Doncaster to Gainsborough Lea Road, Stone to Norton Bridge and Lichfield Trent Valley to Burton-upon-Trent.

    Technically it's two bits that avoid Swansea ;) One is the short stretch around the back of Landore depot, which I'm told is doable on weekend Fishguard Flyers. The more common way, the one you're talking about, is the Swansea District Line, from Briton Ferry to Llangennech.

    I've not researched which way the Fishguard Flyers will go after the timetable change, but as things stand the 1040 Newport to Fishguard and 133x Fishguard to Cardiff Central use the Swansea District Line.

    That bit of blue out of Edinburgh is a bit isolated from the rest of your coverage!

    Latest coverage for me is nothing exciting, platform 3 at Liverpool Lime Street :lol:

    Family holiday just north of the Scottish Border, took the train from Berwick to Edinburgh! One day I'll travel the Entire East Coast Mainline on one train but until then!

    Fair enough!

    Have fun with doing the whole ECML (there's an argument for the whole thing continuing to Aberdeen mind) from London to Edinburgh in one go. Unless it's on a super express run it can be quite an endurance, and even then it can get very dull very quickly.

    I did London to Inverness on the Highland Chieftain years back, and by the time I reached Edinburgh I got the "it can't be far to go now" attitude take over. Of course, you're still hours away at that point! When the doors opened at Inverness the relief to be off the train was quite significant!

    Thanks, it'll be a while before I get around to clearing the lines in the north of Scotland, but I don't think it'll be much more than a year or so before I clear the remainder of lines I need in England and Wales. I should be clearing a decent amount of those in July, fingers crossed. :)

    Same, can you post it as a picture that shows up in the forum too, not a link.

    Latest coverage for me is Basel SBB-Zurich HB via Liestel, Zurich HB-Chur, Chur-Tirano (Bernina Express) and Tirano-Milano Centrale.

    No doubt I had a couple of microgrices in the UK too last week, but I haven't checked them all off yet.

    Is there a usable map for easily filling in Route coverage of London and the South East? The National Rail Map is easy to use but I find that the published maps for the myriad lines of London and the South East from Network really unusable. Something simple would really be useful.
