- (2020-12-22) Murray Colpman: Excellent supplement to RTT. I never knew how useful this would be until I tried it — with my rail enthusiast's hat on, it's great to get a feel for where freight trains have come from/are going to without having to remember obscure location names. And with my passenger's hat on, it's a great way of seeing at a glance if a service is booked to be diverted away from its usual route, rather than having to scan down the list of calling/passing points... A few remaining data issues that cause train routes to zip off to bizarre parts of the country and back still aren't enough to tarnish this excellent extension.
- (2021-01-04, v:0.5.1.0) Anders Beavis Berry: Problem with trains running via Crewe avoiding lines
Hello, I've noticed a problem with the map generated for some trains booked to run via the Crewe avoiding lines. For some reason an additional route point at Kinbrace in Scotland is added. This train has the problem: https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/H08385/2021-01-04/detailed#allox_id=0 Otherwise, RTT Mapper is a brilliant extension, thank you for creating it. Many thanks Anders Beavis Berry
