Quick bump on this thread by myself.

I'm now in possession of a copy of a suitable trip notice and a PTM (Passenger train marshalling) book to be able to provide accurate formations for the coaching stock rather than reasonable approximations. I'm also investigating the possibility of more accurately allocating loco's to their trains now I know which sets air braked and which aren't

On top of this I'm going to do a full review of the TT to try and bring things like descriptions up to a more modern standard that I've recently used. (please Clive when you find a spare week or month can we have a loader version so I can get decisions into this tt )

That said...

a) does anyone have any massive issues, errors or ommisions that haven't already been raised on this thread that I need to look at.

b) when I update stock I'd an opinion on what people think is a better format in the description, bearing in mind not all platforms will fit all trains so the description is critical for replatforming.

Should I just list the overall stock, EG Cl.86/2+7Mk3/RUB/BG or the coach types in formation order eg Cl.86/2+3Mk3+RUB+4Mk3+BG, or do people want full (but maybe more confusing) detail, eg Cl.86/2+[Mk3]4TSO+RUB+3FO+NEX. all three are the same set with different formats.

Joe just use the KISS principle Cl.86/2+7Mk3/RUB/BG works fine or even Cl.86/2+7Mk3+Mk1+BG and doesnt take a lot real estate up in simplifiers etc

Passed the age to be doing 'Spoon Feeding' !!!

The good news is that it's already in alpha test.

The bad news is that a collection of personal and real work problems means I don't have time to fix the issues the testers have found for a few weeks.

As it happens I've played this TT quite a bit the last couple years and went into making my own alterations to a few things to smooth out issues I had.

Luckily I kept notes on what I did in case I buggered it up and took a break and forgot what I did so it should be easy to dig through those and post stands out.

So far these are the ones I had highlighed, no gurantee its accureate or correct or not a matter of intent on your part that I misunderstood:

Quote:
***Routing adjustments***

0F16-1 route from P3 to BOR to P13 doesn't make sense (add Park Street Tunnels) *

1a27 up slow entry typo *

0s38 change park street to pass and not stop *

0g27 change platform from 4 to 5 *

1a18 remove the semi colon in the description *

0H07-1 and OF19 -- change reversal point to uncheck 'passing time' *



-----------------------------------

***Complex Adjustments or additions***

0d81-1n needs neck departure time sorted. as is is scheduled to leave 25 mins before rule train enters (20.30 should work) *

POSSIBLE BUG IN MO TT
0a03 only appears on MX so rule for 0a04-1N not appearing until 0a03 leaves area makes for no traction for 1A04
likely solution make 1A04 into MO and MX variants with both making new service 5A04

0a40-1 rules don't match the booked depart time from the UCS. Its rules say it must depart 2 mins after 0a36-3 leaves the area,
which cannot depart its platform until 1g33 departs at 14.10. Consider removing its booked departure time or amending it to ~14.18

2g01-2 is repeated, maybe earlier one meant to be 2g01-1, same with 2g03-2. *

--------------------------------

***Misc***
0g22 appears to be left over with no associated trains
5z11mx - description says MO seed
Looking forward to a loader version!
