Sorry I am not making myself clear. Even now if I went into Cen Scot and tried to load the timetable that is there, nothing. No Trains no rules just the layout, same on NE Scot. Others on Loader Paisley, North Wales coast , Liverpool still seem to work.

There are lots of people here trying to help you, but you are not giving anyone the information that is needed; you are just repeating yourself that nothing is working. It is clear that there is nothing inherently wrong with your set up as the loader is working correctly with other sims so there must be something you have done or not done with the McSim TTs which is causing the problem. We are trying to get things right for you, but it will not happen if you can't or won't supply the information needed to help solve the problem.

Both Steamer and I have asked more than once where you saved your downloaded TT files. If they are still in your normal Downloads folder you will never see them in SimSig. Please tell us where you have saved them. SimSig doesn't scan your whole hard disk to find timetables. It will only look in places it has been told to look. Unless you have played with the settings, the NESCOT sim will only look in "C:\Users\Public\Documents\SimSig\Timetables\nescot" (or whichever location your version of Windows calls its Public folder) for any TTs. If they are anywhere else on your hard disk you will never see them in SimSig. This is not the fault of SimSig; it is because the user hasn't saved the files in the right place.

Can you please tell us which folder you have used to save the McSim TTs so that we can move on to the next step and get you up and running.

There are things in life a lot more important than SimSig. Whenever you can get back to it we'll take it forward but until then it can quite happily sit on the back burner. There is a lot of support in the SimSig community and everyone will be pulling with you at this difficult time.

I just downloaded the 2013 TT and guess what, could not find it on the loader. Reason being, there are two folders for central Scotland in my c:/users/public/public documents/timetables. One for /Cent Scotland and another for /cscot. I had put the timetable in /Cent Scotland which is not read by my loader, whereas /cscot is. Have no idea why /Cent Scotland is there? Found a 1984 and a 1993 timetable for Central Scotland in there too!

Regarding the other issues mentioned on here. I too found some trains not reversing at Anniesland, 'at buffer stops'. ACI not working for some trains at Anniesland, Queen Street, Stirling, Falkirk G, Caumberbauld and Dunblane. Some trains that terminate at Falkirk G and return to Queen Street do not change number on arriving, some of those that do after reversing do not change their numbers either.

The loader is up to date, as well as the sim, using 2006 WTT (0445 start).

Could the Cent Scotland directory be from the pre-loader version?

Don't think there has ever been any official need for a Cent Scotland folder, did you name that yourself?

Can you tell us the version number of the sim and timetable that you are using, I know you have said it's up to date but double checking will do no harm.

No didn't name it myself.

I am using Loader 4.6.4 with Central Scotland Version 4.1 Timetable was 2006 (0445start)

This morning I down loaded CScot 2013 0445 Start timetable and ran Cent Scot in Post mode. Still had the same issues with the ACI at all location that have ACI, including Alloa. Also 5W74 arrived at Annieland, changed number then was "at buffer stops". I had to reverse it to proceed, which it did into Anniesland Platform and awaited departure time right direction.

Should be sim version 4.1.1, if you are not offered it as "new" then try deleting the Sim and then run the loader and it should offer you the update.

Peter,

I've just deleted the sim file and ran the 'Check for updates'.

The file being downloaded is still version 4.1 not 4.1.1.
