Here you can download things that I've created (usually maps) to accompany videos that I've made.
The Least Used Stations is where I visit and make a video for the least used station in a county, according to the statistics supplied by the Office of Rail and Road, which are usually published in December of each year.
So that you can see where the least used stations are, I've designed and created this Least Used Stations Map which is divided up into the counties in England. (Wales and Scotland are done using their overall Top 10 least used stations instead). This is the version for the 2021-22 period..
In the Request Stops series I'm getting round and visiting all the request stops in Great Britain to see what's at them. To get off at a request stop you have to tell the guard on the train that you wish to alight, to board at a request stop you have to 'make your intent clear' (by sticking your arm out!) as the train approaches the platform.
You can download the Request Stop Map which I've designed, it shows you where on Britain's railways all the request stops are.
This 2021 series visits sixteen locations in London where railways used to be, and to see what remnants and remains are left today. Shot in 4K, this is the map feature in the series and you can download it here.
Don't forget to shout 'Allotment!' when you see one too to play along with the bingo game ...

This 2022/23 series involves visiting stations at the end of Tube lines, and this map shows the locations visited along with the passenger statistics for each station so you can see what the most and least used stations are for those at the End of the Line.
A four day video series in May 2023 saw me tick off all 32 stops (including 22 request stops) on the Heart of Wales Lines. Here's the map as used in the video, which you can download here as a PDF.
To accompany my series of Visiting All Trams Stops here are the maps I used for the Nottingham Manchester and Sheffield networks that you can download as PDF's.
Even though it's called the 'Underground' the majority of the Tube network is actually in the open - but how much?
I created the Actual Underground Map that shows you which parts (shaded) are beneath the surface, and the rest of it which isn't.
In the height of summer, the Tube can get a little warm, so I created the Air Conditioned Tube Map to show which lines are cooled, as some are, and some aren't but now can plan your journey around air conditioned trains.
I once helped developed the Station Master App from which further Apps were created.
This included the Disused Tube App, for which we designed this Disused Tube Map that shows where all the abandoned stations are on the network.
The Elizabeth Line / Crossrail opened on May 24th 2022 just between Paddington and Abbey Wood. This is a 2021 map I designed projecting how I thought the service pattern might look.
In May 2023, with full running happening across the line, here's the map of the real service pattern showing where trains run and how often.
You used to be able to buy a thick timetable booklet with all the timetables in the whole country in one publication, this was supplied with a fold out paper map with the the whole of the UK on one side, and localised areas on the reverse - they were and still are some of the best maps every produced for a clear guide of the railway system in Britain, and you can download them here!
The last official map was published in 2013, someone took that PDF and edited it to create an update 2014, and then again in 2022 with updates again, and also a beige background colour.

These are the regional maps that were on the back - again, the London and South East version is again still one of the best railways maps that's ever been produced, but some parts are obviously out of date now.
Birmingham | Cardiff & Bristol | Glasgow & Edinburgh | London and the South East | Manchester and Liverpool | Newcastle | Southampton and Portsmouth
Here's a Railcards Guide Poster that is a guide showing all the differences between the different types of railcards and what discounts they can get you.
