I've downloaded all the Motherwell updates and find that on the Shotts line, trains get "stuck" at EJ728. Running sim in Larkhall Branch scenario and 2006 TT v 4.2.3.

Thought to myself "ah, re download timetables" but find all the 2006 TTs have vanished from the DL section............

Can anyone help, please?

Timetables which ship with the simulation are all downloaded via the check for updates service. If you delete the files from your computer then hit check for updates you'll get the latest version available.

Thanks very much - has done the trick. Only thing was, the "4.2.3" TTS did not D/L, but the originals working fine.
Cheers

If I'm guessing correctly, I fell into the same trap and made a number of spurious reports on the bug board after thinking that v4.2.3 must be more recent than a file without a version number. The "original" is a file that you have just downloaded. Although the file name is not serialled, the file is actually TT v4.3.

If by that you mean a filename like "my timetable V1.2.WTT" then this is something we do not recommend at all. The file has av ersion number inside it (set in the F4 window) and time after time I have seen filenames not matching the file content. Even worse, if a TT author adds a version number in the notes field, you now have three places where a version number is shown, and three possible variations in version numbers, causing mass confusion!

SSOT and DRY principles apply.

Previous versions of the TT were uploaded as vN.N.WTT. The latest version which Peter has recently uploaded is the plain vanilla TT name so this follows the current protocol. I fell into the trap of thinking that the plain vanilla must be the original released without serial number with the later v2, v3, etc. following.
