May to October 1988 TT Query 31/03/2015 at 13:35 #70574

Hi all, just downloaded and started this TT. For some reason on viewing the TT listing it already says 'Trains handled 29', even though all I've got on screen are a couple of seeded trains. I must admit I'm running in the later sim mode to chicken out of the extra level crossings, could that make a difference? I'm also using the latest version of the Cov sim. Any comments most welcome.
Many thanks.
Mal.

Could be that some of the freights have a different train for different days (so only one variant runs) or only 50% chance of entering etc, the sim then has them as handled once their entering time passes if it has decided that they are not going to run.

Hope that makes sense Mal

Ah, thanks for that Gareth, good point, which I probably hadn't thought of. I see that many trains in the TT are shown as 50% (as on other sims), even though in many cases they appear each time. I shall proceed and see what occurs. Cheers.

The 50% will only apply if it is also ticked in the service option box for the train. If you open F4 to see the list of trains in the timetable, those that "have been handled" will be greyed out (if you have the option unticked for hide entered trains)
