Hi All

I'm pleased to advise you all, that this timetable is now uploaded and now available for download.

Description of this timetable

This is a 2016, standard weekday timetable for the Salisbury Panel area. This is timetable will be compatible with all neighbouring simulations. The Passenger workings have been taken from Network Rail Electronic Timetable Data, with First Great Western stock allocations taken from stock allocations on the 25th of May. South West Trains stock allocations were taken using the same method and supported by the May 2016 Carriage Working Notice. Freight services have been referenced against Freightlocate according to what ran on that day, plus a couple of interesting working that were scheduled on that day but didn't run.

Two start times are provided, 00:00 and 04:30. On the 00:00 start, 295 services are in this timetable. Whilst the service pattern appears basic, you are warned, do not be fooled! Most South West Trains through services will detach or pick up units at Salisbury, so there is a proportionally high number of complex shunt moves. You will need to pay close attention to all timetables, in particular, the Freight services especially if they are running early.

This timetable has been written by myself with support from a number of other. I wish to thank those who have supported us in getting this, and other timetables to completion.

As usual, if any errors or issues are found, please add comments to this thread, and I will address them.

Passenger Services
First Great Western

First Great Western operate a handful of services through this area. The basic pattern is:

  • 1tph Portsmouth Harbour to Cardiff Central.

  • 2tpd Brighton to Bristol Temple Meads.

  • Occasional services to Southampton Central from various destinations.

Most services are formed of Class 158 units, supported by Class 150 units.

South West Trains

South West Trains operate the majority of services in this area. The basic pattern is:

  • 1tph London Waterloo - Exeter St Davids

  • 1tph London Waterloo - Salisbury with peak extensions to Gillingham, Yeovil Junction and Yeovil Pen Mill

  • 1tph Salisbury - Romsey - Southampton Central - Eastleigh - Romsey (the Salisbury 6)

These are formed of Class 158 and 159 units.


Freight consists mainly of stone traffic to and from Whatley and Merehead Quarries to various destinations across the south of the United Kingdom, along with a small number of engineering trains.

Other notes

You must read the timetable carefully, as trains will often not take the route you expect, or hold for another train to run ahead of it. This is particularly important for freight services, especially if they are ahead of time.

If there are any issues or errors, please let us know in this thread.

Sorry guys, I am in the business of making people wait!
