Description

This timetable should be run in the 2004-2007 era. An 0445 start is included. This timetable is compatible with New Street 2015.

A full WTT for Wolverhampton, set in 2015. Passenger times have been taken from Real Time Trains and Open Train Times, freight times from the WTT on Network Rail's website.

Passenger times are based on 15/04/2015, freight is based on trains which actually ran on 18/03/2015.

Service pattern:

Virgin Trains

Virgin Trains operates an hourly service between London and Scotland which runs via Wolverhampton. These trains run as Class 9, to distinguish them from Virgin's other London- Scotland service, which runs straight down the WCML via Lichfield. For regulation purposes, these should be treated as normal Class 1 trains. Trains are a mixture of Class 390s and Class 221s.

VT stables several trains at Oxley overnight, so there are a few extra VT services during the morning and evening. There are also two trains a day to/from Shrewsbury.

Cross Country

CrossCountry operates an hourly service between Manchester and Bristol (with some extensions to Exeter and Paington) , and an hourly service between Manchester and Bournemouth. In realiity, these trains are a mixture of Class 220s and 221s, however 220s have been used throughout as I've been unable to find diagrams.

London Midland

London Midland operates a half-hourly semi-fast service between Birmingham and Liverpool, using Class 350s. They also operate a half-hourly all stations service between Wolverhampton and Walsall, using a mixture of 323s. 323 diagrams are accurate, however 110-mph 350s have been used throughout as I've been unable to find diagrams.

Arriva Trains Wales

Arriva Trains Wales operates an hourly service to Birmingham International. The origin/destination of this service alternates between Holyhead and Aberystwyth. Class 158s are generally used on these services.

Freight

Freight traffic is mainly container and car traffic between the north west and the southern ports, with a few engineers trains mixed in. There are also a handful of coal trains serving the power station at Ironbridge.

Please feel free to ask any questions, or report issues and bugs below.

Enjoy!

Apologies- one of those should appear 24 hours later. Fixed for next release.

That is what i thought was meant to happen as would be a daily train. I shall attempt to play this for the whole 24 hours, although that could take a couple of weeks, and will let you know if I find anything else :-)

Version 1.2 now approved, and available here. This corrects a problem with an ECS that wasn't disappearing at Oxley.
