The Cowlairs versions of the 1984 and 1993 CScot timetables are now available in the 'Cowlairs' section of user contributed timetables here

1984 introduction
This timetable must be operated in the ‘Old Cowlairs’ Sim era option.
This timetable is a combination of the 1984/85 passenger timetable and 1982-1984 freight timetables. As
such it is not historically accurate for any specific day. The timetable runs from 0000 to 2700 (ie 0300 next
day) and generally uses trains running on a Thursday.
Short distance ECS movements have been invented to match stock requirements. A few alterations were
also needed to the stock diagrams to suit the sim, notably to cope with multiple docking in the station.
It is the same as the Central Scotland 1984 timetable
The main feature is the higher levels of both freight and loco-hauled passenger services. This includes more
West Highland line services and the West Highland sleeper via Queen St.

1993 introduction
This timetable must be operated in the ‘Old Cowlairs’ Sim era option.
This timetable is a combination of the 1993 passenger and freight working timetables. The 1993 WTT did
not contain coal trains, these being planned weekly, so the 1999 coal timetable has been used instead. The
timetable runs from 0000 to 2700 (ie 0300 next day) and generally uses trains running on a Thursday. To
avoid a rush of seed trains, the last few late night service trains are not included at the start.
Short distance ECS movements have been invented to match stock requirements. A few alterations were
also needed to the stock diagrams to suit the sim, notably to cope with multiple docking in the station.
It is the same as the Central Scotland 1993 timetable

Bill in respect of the 1984 Cowlairs timetable which I'm currently playing in one word superb, my kind of timetable. However one slight issue with regards to 6A98-P in the timetable data you show it to be routed via platform 1 at Springburn. Surely that should be platform 2? Now up to 0600 & enjoying every minute of it. Cowlairs being also an excellent sim for one person to handle, both the sim & this timetable compliment one another. You also saved me the trouble from writing a timetable for this era.

Thanks, glad you are enjoying it. Get the hang of the Queen St end before you get hit with CScot84.

As for 6A98, it should be Springburn P2. I'll fix CScot 84 now.

regards
Bill

Updates for the 'Loader' version of sim.

1984 runs without issues.

1993 updated with new seeding arrangements, so trains have to be run into platforms.

regards
Bill
