Hi Guys,

I'm currently in the process of making a Stafford 2015 Weekday timetable(which will be know as Stafford 2015 SSux to distinguish it from Steamers). I'm hoping for it to be ready within the next Two weeks as I would like to host a public test session sometime in the next week, When its released I hope you all enjoy the timetable, Also report any issues on this post.

---Notes---

This timetable is a standard weekday timetable based on the workings in early October in 2015, Timetable has a mixture of TTho, FO,WO and some MO only freights to give variety. Also there is a FO passenger train that runs via Stoke & Hixon from Preston which has also been included. Timetable taken from RealTime Trains with and reporting numbers taken from the Network Rail WTT.

Timetable Notes.
1. The fast lines between Stafford & Crewe are closed for the daily possession between 23:00 and 05:00. This is for the construction of the Norton Bridge Flyover due to be completed in Spring 2016 .The Possession also includes the Stone Branch to Stone Junction.


2. Between 00:30 & 04:30 Stafford Trent Valley Junction - Bushey Junction is closed for a possession, Trains are to divert via Nuneaton and Coventry or via the Chase Line.

3. Due to the Sim being based before the 2007 remodelling of the line from two lines to four lines, SimSiggers will have to regulate freight and passengers accordingly to miminise delay.

This sim should be completed and ready for upload within the next fortnight, I'm hoping to do a public test, in the near future.

WSM thank's for taking the time to update this TT you have done.

Also I've been tinkering around with your Easter 2016 Blockade TT, I've sorted the timings of the engineering trains at Norton Bridge where once the 1st one arrives, it soon departs 24hrs early.. and them pesky track machines at Rugeley Trent Valley, where that one arrives comes back 18hrs early...

Your welcome, there has been quiet drastic changes in the area with the closure of both Ironbridge and Rugeley Power Stations, meaning a lot of freight traffic has been lost, which not much in its place, also UID have changed so I thought it time to update.

That is exactly what I'm doing, just need to do some tweaking, aswell as some passenger and freight workings have slightly different timings, headcodes (as you know) and there is some new flows that need to be added in.
