Description
Done on request

Insane map with 388 towns - keeps growing as missing ones get spotted.

Thanks to Gavt1976 for spotting my mistakes ;)

Map stretches from East coast to West coast
From Hull via Leeds and Manchester to Liverpool across the centre of the map.
Northern most town is Scarborough - Southernmost is Nottingham

Run with Experimental mode on in the config file.
Recommend you use GrandT's massive map settings and also the No initial roads mod.

This is a no industry map.

The 'towns' are nearly all rail station locations.

For those interested - The short version of how I create these (There are already guides on the workshop that cover most of this in detail):-

When creating these maps I first create a height map by 'stitching together' 60 km squares downloaded from terrain party site and size it to one of the standard TPF map sizes and smooth it off a bit. (I use GIMP for that).
Then I create an overlay of the area from a pdf I have of the Uk rail network and size it to match the heightmap.
Then I go to here http://glatar.hu/tpf/TPFME-Lite.html and import the overlay (not the heightmap) and just simply click on each station I want to place and create a town there. Then I export the town list.

In the Uk Stations are for the most part named after the village/town/area they are located in but ...
occasionally they aren't - so if you spot one of those then that's why.

Dewsbury is missing too [between Batley and Ravensthorpe [a major town for the area].
Also can you put in Nafferton in between Driffield and Bridlington [north of Hull and Beverley]. Thanks.

Excellent map since Iive within its reaches. Note: Ashton-Under-Lyme, near manchester and Ardwick is actually Ashton-Under-Lyne, easy to mistake from maps at distance. Also between Stalybridge and Marsden is a town called Mossley. Thanks.

Nice map. One tiny point, the town just north of Morecambe is Carnforth, not Camforth, which looks the same in some fonts. (r n not m)

Hi Mad Hatter. Just to let you know, you have missed out a mid-major town in the NW namely Bolton. Should ne NW of Kearsley and E of Horwich Parkway. Also Wigan is called Wigan and the 'Wallgate' is a station there: Wigan Wallgate [and Wigan Northwestern]. Thanks.

Hi Wagstaff

@Mad Hatter:
Probably Louth, Horncastle, Alford, Woodhall Spa, Wragby and Bardney would be my suggestions. They're all spaced nicely apart and won't cause any impromptu population explosions.

@ricblack49: Yes, I know all of this and it's kinda sad. I live in an old station on the East Lincs main line. Admittedly there's very little here apart from farms, as you say, but if we'd kept the East Lincs line it'd have massively boosted Louth and Alford's potential in the modern era. As is is both are kind of isolated now.

Wagstaff - For interest: Mr Beeching decided East Lincolnshire didn't need railways and drastically pruned the network. There used to be a mainline from Grimsby taking fish to London and branch lines for fresh produce, that all went. Now there's just the holiday route to Skeggy to sustain the line, and the occasional steel train from Boston Dock.
E Lincs is basically a farm and food factory with truck routes, travelling on single cabbage-ways, with the occasional double cabbage-way out of the County to provide your 5-a-day.

Yep I know that's why its in the description above ;)
But even with that eventually everything stutters - of course that could be my kit. ;)

You can use GrandT's mod:

Works great for the Midlands map. Use it myself.
