Carlisle 2016 (SSux) Diverts GSW 13/01/2016 at 11:50 #79828

Hi All,

I'm currently in the process of making a Carlisle 2016 Weekday timetable which will be known as Carlisle 2016 (SSux). I'm hoping for it to be ready within the next few weeks before a private host before release.


This timetable is set on a standard weekday timetable based on the workings in early January 2016. Timetable has a mixture of TTho, FO,WO and some MO only freights to give variety. Timetable taken from Real Time Trains with actual platform numbers with reporting numbers taken from the Network Rail WTT.

Timetable Notes.
1. Trains are currently unable to run on the West Coast Main Line between Carlisle and Glasgow Central / Edinburgh. This is because urgent repairs are required to a river bridge at Lamington, which is located between Lockerbie and Motherwell.

2. Virgin Trains, Serco Caledonian and Freight services are been diverted via Dumfries, New Cumnock or ECML in which case everything will be via WCML for this timetable.

3. Carefull signalling will be needed within the Carlisle area as Virgin Trains and First TransPennine Express will be terminating, turning around for the journey south, this means platforms may become occupied for a short while.

4. When Carlisle Loader Sim is released, I will be ammending this timetable so it can work with the new sim.
