Spot the difference.

Can you identify a station from just a paving slab? Sadly, some people can

Spot the difference.

Post by tractakid » 07 Jan 2014, 22:27

I recently emailed the creator of the National Rail All Stations map with some observations, lots of which have resulted in changes. It's up to you lot to play spot the difference!

http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/static/do ... apzoom.pdf *Old version*
http://www.projectmapping.co.uk/Resourc ... 202014.pdf *New version*

Have fun!

(and if you spot any errors/omissions that remain on the new one perhaps you can email the creator like I did!)

Eh, the old version's link has already been updated. Which is a good thing for the website, but is a rubbish thing for this quiz that nobody cares about. Oh well! :P

I have always maintained that this is the worst rail map I have ever seen. Even worse than Harold F. Hutchinson's map that eventually replaced Beck's design in 1961.

It's the only map with all the stations on it, though.

I notice that on both versions it says 'LU Docklands Light Railway,' which is surely wrong.

Did they change it because you suggested they should, or did they just change it on their own?
