Unusual Track
lists specific passenger trains in the UK that are scheduled to traverse bits of track that are a bit on the unusual side – lines that are normally freight only, little used
platforms, and lines, loops and crossovers which are not normally covered by the majority of the service trains, both during the week and at weekends. Click here to see a sample page.


ACCESS TO THE FULL SITE IS NOW RESTRICTED TO BRANCH LINE SOCIETY MEMBERS.

PLEASE VISIT BRANCHLINE.UK TO SEE WHAT THE SOCIETY HAS TO OFFER.


Thanks to the generosity of UT members, over £5000 has been raised for the Railway Children charity.

Some members have found the Unusual Track website so worthwhile, they have generously made additional donations.
 

Main pages
Over 200 pages - equating to each TrackMaps’ Quail page - list details of all service trains both regular and one-off occurrences due to engineering work that traverse unusual or rare sections of track, at the Baker level as well as the Quail level. Click here to see a sample main page.

Revised track layouts
TrackMaps’ Quail diagrams are indispensable for those wanting to cover unusual track. However, with a number of changes to the network happening on a regular basis,
the diagrams can quickly get out of date so the full site records a significant number of changed layouts. Click here to see a sample revised layout.

Diary of upcoming unusual track
For convenience, a diary of upcoming unusual track is provided. For each region, these pages list in date sequence any moves that will be happening in the next few weeks
that are normally harder or more inconvenient to do. Click here to see a sample diary page.
