I have created a timetable for the Trent Valley blockade in late December 2016, The timetable is in final stages of testing and will be released within the next week, please post any bugs here.

This timetable is a based on the timetable for Tuesday 27th December 2016 when the Trent Valley was closed for engineering works between Stafford Trent Valley Jn/Stone Jn - Rugby Trent Valley Jn, with all trains diverted via the West Midlands resulting in this sim being easily playable for one person. Timetables taken from RealTime Trains with and reporting numbers taken from the Network Rail WTT.

Timetable Notes.
1. No trains on the Trent Valley between Stafford and Rugby.

---Service Pattern---

---Virgin Trains---
Virgin are running a reduced timetable due to capitcy on the diversion route. The service pattern is as follows;
The London Euston - Glasgow Central service remain as 1tph however are diverted via Birmingham International and Aston. Operated by Class 390 EMU's.
The London Euston - Liverpool Lime Street also remain as 1tph and again are diverted Via Birmingham International and Aston. Operated by Class 390 EMU's
The London Euston - Manchester Piccadilly services drop from 3tph to 2tph, 1 service goes via Birmingham International, Aston and Stoke to Manchester, whilst the other service goes via Birmingham International, Birmingham New Street and Crewe to Manchester. The services via Crewe run as Class 9's but should still be treated as a Class 1. Operated by Class 390 EMU's.
1tph London Euston - Glasgow Central/Edinburgh Waverley Via West Midlands (Alternates between each hour, these run as Class 9's but should still be treated as a Class 1.) Operated by Class 221 DEMU's or 390 EMU's (Unchanged)

---Cross Country---
Cross Country's services are unaffected by any engineering works and are running a normal timetable with the only adjustment being that service start later in the day. The service pattern is as follows;
1tph Manchester Piccadilly - Bristol Temple Meads (Some trains extend to Paignton, Exeter, Plymouth), Early Morning and Late Night services start and terminate at Birmingham New Street so they can travel to and from Central Rivers depot, Operated by 220/221 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.) Operated by 220/221 DEMU's

---London Midland---
London Midland like Virgin are also running to a reduce timetable, the service pattern is as follows;
The Liverpool Lime Street - Birmingham New Street service are reduced from 2tph to 1tph. Operated by Class 350 EMU's
Due toe the closure of the Trent Valley there is no Crewe-Euston service running during in this day and instead a Crewe-Stafford hourly service is in running in its path between Crewe and Stafford, operared by Class 350 EMU's.
1tph Birmingham New Street - Rugeley Trent Valley (2pth at Peak Times) Operated By Class 170 & 153 DMU's (Unchanged)

---Arriva Trains Wales---
Also today only operated a late night service between Birmingham New Street and Holyhead via Crewe, operated by a Class 158 DMU.

I've got the diagrams for it myself.

Virgin and LM, anyway.

Good for you.

Mine is more of an ad-hoc timetable. Designed to make you work and be difficult.

How do you path trains from the North into Platform 3? Also the trains from Stoke seem to lose time by Stafford; is this because the Norton Junction has been remodeled now?
