just to be clear, are you doing a timetable specifically for fri 31st may, or a general timetable? if its the former, the frequency/possibility will be irrelevant, as it only matters if they ran on that particular day.

I can't find the WTT book that covers the Royston line, but some deductions based on YH01 and LD01 give the following (trains are in the same order as you posted them):

3J32, 60mph I'd guess an MPV of some description.
I can't match the second one to anything.
0C10 (headcode given on OTT), I don't know what class it is (I'd guess 67), but it's pretty academic: Whatever it is will be about 20m long, and all light engines have a max speed of 75mph.
6L37, max speed 60, no idea what it is or how long.
0C20, see comments for 0C10
I can't match the sixth one to anything.
6L36, see comments for 6L37.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your help, how long are MPVs? I have a guess at about 40/60m.

6L36& 6L37 are both Infrastucture trains from Hoo Junction to Whitemoor and run about 95% of the time. If there is no traffic for them they usually run LD for their back working to Hoo Junction which is normally via Peterborough. They do not have a specific length as the traffic varies from day to day.

Another question, where do you get all the headcodes from?

All passenger ones are on Open Train Times (remember to click the spanner icon so it's highlighted blue)

Freight headcodes can be found by looking in the full WTT on the website of Network Rail. The one for May - December 2013 can be found here:
