Hi all, hopefully this query is in the right place. For trains (north and southbound) to and from Stoke, where Stafford isn't on the pathing list, is the normal route via the 'Stoke Lines' as opposed to the main route through Stafford itself? I only ask as some services are shown SL. Could this be taken to mean 'Stoke Lines' as well as Slow Line? I've initially sent them through Stafford with no calls saying incorrect route, but if the correct route is via the Stoke Lines that should make things a little easier. Hope I've asked the question correctly. I'm running the supplied TT. Cheers, Mal.

Yeah drivers would be signed off on both routes because that way when one is closed; the other can be used to provide minimal disruption. It's the same with the branch lines and the main lines between Alexandra Palace and Stevenage (KingsX area); drivers are signed off on both so that services can still run if they can't use their normal path.
