Hi all, I'm running this TT and a couple of queries. I keep getting calls from drivers on V245 and V243. These trains are sat at Brixton platforms but on the TT are shown at Brixton sidings, due depart at 05.25 and 05.26 respectively. Already in the sidings are V244 and V247. Apologies I can't put on a screenshot as I've not sussed how to do it. Any comments as usual much appreciated.
Cheers.
Mal.

What "should" be happening is that V243-0 and V245-0 both seed at Brixton, and form automatically onto V243-1 and V245-1 respectively. However, this timetable was written before the current method of seeding trains was altered slightly.

A temporary work-around is to assign both trains to the correct V243-1 / V245-1 trips using the F2 window - and also interpose the correct TDs. This will put them both on their correct northbound trips - though they may still call in to say they are being "held."

I am just about to forward Peter an update to this timetable which will correct the problem (it has worked when I just tested it anyway).

Thanks metcontrol, I've stepped them both up via F2 up as you kindly suggest. Just waiting departure times. Another bit of my learning curve completed, I've never done that before. Thanks again.

Thanks for all the help on this TT. One observation discovered - train V220-OC enters from Northumberland Pk at 05.29 for P4 at 7 Sisters. Next working is V220-OD to Walthamstow. Unfortunately had to remove train as, even if it was moved to P5 the only option is running 'wrong line' to Walthamstow. Just hope this old brain of mine hasn't missed something.
Merely a query and by no means a gripe as it's a brilliant TT with plenty to watch out for.
Regards,
Mal.

I just had one of those "Oh no, how many more things did I miss when testing" moments
However... V220 is correct.

V220-0C runs from Northumberland Park to Seven Sisters P4 and forms V220-0D for Walthamstow. V220-0C must be routed tp Platform 4.
V220-0D is then booked to be routed from Platform 4 to the northbound line via Signal VL6 and the crossover immediately north of the platform.

Hope this helps

Oh heck, I'm really sorry about that metcontrol.Just looked again and of course it makes perfect sense. I'm now having one of those 'I really must double check before asking question' moments.
Your reply very much appreciated, I shall now give myself a hearty slap.
Thanks again.
Mal.
