I've searched through the 'Timetables' section of the forum but have not been able to find any answers to this question, I wonder if any of you out there can help please?

In the York 1991 sim trains booked relied at York Yard South have a capital 'C' between the departure time hour and minute. I'm currently running the Oxford 1978 V1.3 TT, and I've noticed some trains have a 't' in the departure time, others have a 'w'. What do these letters (and any others I may have missed) signify?


Regards,

Phil.

C signifies a crew change! Cannot comment on the rest, as I am a bit of a div.

As I said, trains booked relief (relief = crew change) have a 'C' in their timings.

Well where you have actually typed "relied" instead of "relief", I misunderstood that you were meant to say relief.

Typo's aside, I can see how it may be possible for someone to confuse the never-used-on-the-railway phrase "booked relied" with the in-daily-use-on-the-railway phrase "booked relief".
