    Having obtained all of the collectables without a guide for the first time in a route, I thought I'd make my own guide for those who want to get this set. I don't have any screenshots but they are generally quite easy to find, just look around the station (or depot) area.

    8 collectables (2 of each) - Glasgow Central, Shields Road

    7 collectables (1 poster, 2 of everything else) - Neilston

    5 collectables (2 posters, 1 of everything else) - Mount Florida

    4 collectables (1 of each) - Pollokshields East, Queens Park, Crosshill, Cathcart, Langside, Pollokshaws East, Shawlands, Maxwell Park, Pollokshields West, Kings Park, Croftfoot, Burnside, Kirkhill, Newton, Muirend, Williamwood, Whitecraigs, Patterton

    I was surprised to see them at the depot area. Thought they would've all been at stations.

    Took me ages to work that out! Two other stations (Dumbreck and Crossmyloof) appear on the map and I was convinced they were there but you can't get to them.

    Isn’t the fun finding them without help? maybe it’s just me?
    They are just pointless with a guide but obviously not everyone has to read the guide

    I noticed these two unreachable stations yesterday as well. Wanted to visit the one near the depot on foot, but an invisible wall understandably stopped me from doing so. I was able to see the bridge over the station in the distance, but both the resolution and draw distance were too low to see any platforms. Hopefully a PC player with a “no boundaries” mod can visit these stations and show us what they look like!

    I use a guide to mop up what I can't find myself so that's a good balance to me. I don't find it fun on some high speed routes where the collectibles are miles from a station on a straight track with not much scenery difference. Could spend hours looking for the last 2 when I could be spending that time on a train or making a livery. As I note the areas/stations of what I find it doesn't take too long to see which ones I am missing from a guide. I understand some like to walk the routes. That's not my thing (I do like to look around sidings and stations).

    If you play Ruhr-Sieg Nord (LIRR was fixed recently), there's also the glitchy count of collectibles. If you don't find the surplus hammers/signs, you will be looking for a light that I think isn't able to be reached. Thankfully more care has been taken with collectibles on newer routes.

    Slightly off topic, but I find the collectables that are the little wooden trains with flowers to be so charming! I think some stations have them as not fully painted (or weathered) which is a nice little extra detail.

    I agree very helpful and appreciated post. I’d missed one and this helped narrow down where. Thank you.

    Hmm. I’ve been to every station twice and I’m missing four collectables (1 of each). I’ve also been to the depot. I don’t know how I can missing four of each collectable. It’s unlikely I’ve missed one of each type at four different stations, and I can’t have missed an entire station. I’m wondering if my game has glitched and not recorded one of each, but even that’s unlikely.

    EDIT: It was me being thick. I missed that there were two of each collectable at Shields Road Depot.

    Some larger stations have 2 of a type, and Glasgow Central has 2 of each.

    Thanks for the guide. I appreciate it as I only really do the collectables for the achievement and it is also a good way to have a mooch around the stations on foot if I just feel like sitting down doing something I don’t have to think too much about.

    If I remember correctly, one is on the left wall of the main station building (left when looking at the inoperative main PIS screens) near the barriers to the platforms.

    Thanks Matjamca, I appreciate your help. I have now also found a useful video for anyone struggling.

    Thanks for the guide, was scouring the forums for one with a checklist.

    Over on XBox I am pretty sure this is glitched, so I guess I should go and report it there.
    I have 25 of everything except newspapers. I just finished a full circuit of every station and can confirm for papers I have:
    2 at Glasgow Central
    2 at Shields Depot
    2 at Neilston
    1 at each of the other 19 stations

    By my maths, that's 25. Not 24.

    *EDIT* oooh, going back a second time through the list, it turned out one of them was VISUALLY bugging and displaying the papers in the stand when they actually weren't! When I walked up to the box closely though, it gave me the ping! It was the one I found while doing the initial introduction to the line, on the platform at the beginning, so I guess it didn't properly register me collecting it, but visually updated it to look like I had.
