Only a minor thing, but 2P00 is showing as being formed of 8/465. Presume this is meant to be 365.

EDIT

Having played the 04:45 Start version to 07:00, you have two trains wanting to use the DF to reverse at 07:00. 5P54 and 5P63 IIRC.

Ooops, force of habit as I'm always writing 8/465 at work!

I'll have a look at the other issue

Now at 10:00 Sim Time, I've found the following issues

3J32 and 3R94 should be booked via P4 at Biggleswade to reverse not P1.
2T46 is occupying P2 at Peterborough for about 4 hours, 1E02, 4O20 and 1A16 are all booked to use it while 2T46 is occupying the platform.
2P06 is Booked into Peterborough P3 at 10:04 while 1A16 is due to use P2 from 10:04 to 10:06 but 1A16 cannot use P2 if 2T46 is in the way.

Apart from these issues, the timetable is great and thanks for developing it!

Thanks for updating the timetables to loader standards, crew changes make you think!

Couple of issues:

1. 1a04, 1a09, 1d42 & 1n13 should be formed of 225 stock but appear as a Cl67 L/E. Similarly 1e24 should be a 9-car GR HST.

2. 6e95 should be added into the 'are alternatives' chain with 6l95 & 6l76. Additionally, (4e25 & 4d56) and (6m87 & 4m84) should be alternatives.

3. 6e60 needs a rule to prevent it entering too early after 0e60 has exited. Similarly 0e57 vice 6l57.

4. 0e88 never makes it to Ketton ward Siding - no tt. There are in fact no trains that exit into Ketton Ward siding despite several coming out.

5. The Spalding shuttles need a little re-working:
2l53 next working should be 2k32
2k13 next working should be 2k38
2k17 next working should be 2k42 and the stock should be a 156
2k23 next working should be 2t46 and the stock should be a 153

Also may be some rules to prevent delayed trains re-entering too early at Spalding?


6. 3jXX rules need adjusting or implementing to prevent the train re-entering too early after it exits.

7. 0445 Start TT is missing 1p61 seed @ Peterborough P1.

8. Noticed that a couple of trains booked to stop at Huntingdon from the fast lines were routed by ARS on the fast lines, not into the relevant platform - sorry can't remember which ones.

9. Cosmetically, the 1l7/8X National Xpress services are shown in the train description as going to Liverpool Lime Street!

10. All the light engine train types are listed as a LD Cl 67 rather than a Cl 66. The LD75 acceleration profile was also listed as Very Low.

I apologise if this is a lot to swallow but this was a very enjoyable timetable.

Updated files sent for approval by a mod.

Everything found has been amended EXCEPT:
6. 3jXX rules need adjusting or implementing to prevent the train re-entering too early after it exits.
These trains can be turned round short of their destination in order to get them back to the depot on time so have been left as is. 3J41 already had rules for this anyway.

8. Noticed that a couple of trains booked to stop at Huntingdon from the fast lines were routed by ARS on the fast lines, not into the relevant platform - sorry can't remember which ones.
The path codes used are those input by NR Planning department. If they are not working correctly under ARS then can you please flag this up with the sim dev
