This week has been hard work, but there’s a surprise – three new maps!
- The Sandwell and Dudley to Penkridge map covers Sandwell and Dudley, Wolverhampton, Portobello Junction and the line to Darlaston Junction, plus the avoiding line to Bushbury Junction, continuing to Penkridge
- The Nuneaton to Lichfield Trent Valley map covers from just north of Nuneaton up to Lichfield Trent Valley and the chord to Winchnor Junction and on to just south of Rugeley Trent Valley
- The Stafford map covers Rugeley Trent Valley, the line to Rugeley Town and Rugeley Power Station, part of the line to Stoke-on-Trent, the whole Stafford area including the remaining track to Penkridge, part of the line to Stone, and finishes just short of Crewe
As well as a trio of new maps, many (but not all) trains are now shown in white text where they’ve been linked to a schedule. Clicking on the white headcode will bring up the schedule for the train. It’s not perfect – there’s more work to do, but it’s a start. Some trains may be linked to the wrong service in another train describer area, and some trains may lose their link and appear in yellow text en-route. Soon, this linking will be extended to show train lateness in real-time – showing early, on-time and late trains in different colours.
There are also a few bug-fixes, including layout changes on the Brighton Main Line maps.
Until next time, enjoy the new maps and please keep emailing in your feedback!
