|Stafford Easter 2016 (Norton Bridge Blockade) Timetable 28/03/2016 at 15:54 #81453|
This is my Good Friday 2016 Timetable for Stafford which will be sent to moderators by the end of the week, the timetable features less trains and is suitable for 1 player, in multiplayer sessions 2 panels would be out of action. Information on timetable is below, hope you enjoy it when its released as this has taken at lot of work.
This timetable is set on Good Friday 2016 when the WCML was shut between Stafford North Junction and Crewe Basford Hall Jn, for 4 days (from Good Friday till the Tuesday) for the more work could be done on the Norton Bridge flyover in what would be the penultimate closure before its opening in May of 2016. Timetable taken from RealTime Trains with reporting numbers taken from the Network Rail WTT.
1. Fast & Slow Lines between Stafford & Crewe Closed all day, services will divert via Stoke or finish at Stafford, see service pattern for details.
2. 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.
1tph London Euston - Glasgow Central diverted via Stoke, operated by Class 390 EMU's
1tph London Euston - Liverpool Lime Street diverted via Stoke,operated by Class 390 EMU's
2tph London Euston - Manchester Piccadilly, Via Stoke only, operated by 390 EMU's
A 2 Hourly London Euston-Stafford Via Birmingham, operated by 390 EMU's, These run as Class 9's from London but should be treated as Class 1's for regulation purposes.
A 2 Hourly Birmingham International - Stafford, operated by 221 DEMU's
1tph Manchester Piccadilly - Bournemouth.(Early Morning and Late Night services run between Manchester & Birmingham for the units can then travel to Central Rivers depot.). These trains will reverse at Stafford to Rugeley and then reverse again to go towards Stoke. Operated by 220/221 DEMU's
A 2 Hourly Shrewsbury - Stafford Via Wolverhampton, operated by Class 170 DMU's
1tph London Euston - Crewe Via Stoke (Early Morning and Late evening services start and finish at Northampton, 1 morning and 2 evening peak services are 2 units and therefore don't stop at Stone as they won't fit.) These service have 20 minute stops at Rugeley and divert via Hixon, operated by Class 350 EMU's
1tph Birmingham New Street - Rugeley Trent Valley, operated By Class 170 & 153 DMU's. Some services are retimed to allow Cross Country services to reverse.
There is a reduced amount of freight than usual, however there is still a steady flow, all freight will also divert via Stoke with some Bescot bound trains also diverting via the Chase Line. Due to the Hixon Line only being 2 track freight and passengers will have to be regulated to minimise delay.
Please report any bugs on this page.

One of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas.
