This is one of the downsides of having things traced from NPE (or 
tracing in gerneral) as at first glance it appears that coverage is 
good. However some of the detail will be missing. For example I recently 
cycled up from Edinburgh to Inverness, and actually only left my GPS on 
by accident as it looked like the train line was well covered. However 
as I've been going through my trip, I can't see any other GPS traces 
covering the train route and it does appear to be NPE traced....
