What's new – 11th December 2016

Some of us aren’t fans of winter – it’s too dark and grey for too long. But looking on the bright side, it’s the perfect opportunity to keep OpenTrainTimes up-to-date with new maps and fixes!

This time, we have two items of note.

  • First, as a result of a request from a regular user of the map, the Purley to Tattenham Corner and Caterham map now contains route indications – although some aren’t provided in enough detail from Three Bridges to be able to show them all at Purley.
  • Secondly, still on the Southern region, we have a brand new map of Tonbridge (exc.) to Hastings (exc.), which fills in the gap between the Brighton Main Line and the East Coastway line. This route is signalled at the north from Tonbridge (although curiously Ashford controls Tonbridge station) with signals prefixed ‘PE’, fringing with Robertsbridge at the single-line between Wadhurst and Stonegate, and the southern end from Bopeep Junction.

We’re also hard at work on the Wembley Freight map, which is hugely complicated but looking impressive, and for Christmas, a new map of Cardiff Central, plus updates to the Great Western maps and London Bridge.

And as always, there are numerous small issues fixed:

There are other fixes, but if I were to list them all out here, you’d lose interest.

So, until next time – enjoy watching the trains!

  1. Hi Peter,
    I.am.so happy to have found this fantastic site that you have produced.I am so glad to have stumbled across it by accident.Can I ask if there is a possibility of a key to explain shortened words in the small black boxes.I was also wondering if you will at any time be adding Skipton Yorkshire line to the site.The.father in law just started using it after I told him about it and he resides in Skipton.Thanks again for a superb site and long may it continue

  2. Looking on the wessex route: Salisbury to Exeter Central,
    When a route between signal 4717 and 4737 (Yeovil Junction aera) is set signal 4721 should be showing green it doesn’t signal 4723 is showing green which is an error and needs to be looked into.

  3. On the International Channel Tunnel map the route is shown as continuing through the “Thames Tunnel” not Channel Tunnel. Just an observation.

    When will South West Trains routes from Reading and Windsor to Waterloo be added?
