Timetable will be started on 27th December 2017.

Wyre Viaduct near Lancaster is been replaced over the Christmas period involving the line been closed between Lancaster and Preston in both directions. Now this would be more idea for a 'Preston PSB' sim but sadly we don't have one just yet so I'm making it for Carlisle instead.
Trains to/from Carlisle are all turning around at Lancaster. Virgin Trains have slightly amended timetables along with TransPennine Express.
The timetable will start at 0500 due to hardly any traffic between 0000 and 0500. There is some freight movements via the Settle & Carlisle line including the mail services.

Most of the freight isn't running on this particular day therefore I'm going add in as much as I can with re-adjustments various workings to fit along the Settle & Carlisle with restrictions and guidance
Some freight services at Caldew Jn will cross before the passenger services.
