I've just uploaded my Peterborough 1985-1986 timetable for moderator approval. This timetable was written new to be run on the original layout of the new Peterborough scrolly sim. Various BR publications have been used to create this timetable such as WTTs(Passenger, Parcels & Freight), along with a passenger train marshalling book for the ECML, freight train loads books, 1985/1986 loco diagrams for March depot & Stratford depot. Also I'd like to thank an ex work colleague of mine Vince who not only tested the timetable, but also allocated the DMU depots to the DMU services due to his knowledge of there working being a DMU controller based at Derby for part of his railway career, so alot of thanks needs to be pointed into his direction. I've released this timetable now as Clive has added in the missing siding at Offord on the Dopwn Slow for Superior International who used to recieve continental ferry vans loaded with fruit & veg from europe.
One thing to note about this timetable. At present there are approx. 700 trains in the timetable, not that may not seem alot, but due to the fact that t the present time & probably for the next 6 months I am writing timetables for sim developpers whose sims have not yet been released & also testing them means I don't really have any spare time to concentrate on writing timetables for me like the Peterborough 1985-1986 tt. At some point I will add some additional traffic as my intention is for this Peterborough 1985 timetable will chain to the the King's Cross 1985 timetable I released a year or so ago. I still have to add in some Hitchin trip workings as well as some track machine movements, but that could take another 6 months or more so I'm releasing this version now.
If anyone has any issues regarding this timetble then either post it on here or place a report on MANTIS & I'll deal with it. Finally I hope you enjoy this timetable.

Thanks for this! I was actually in the middle of attempting to update the existing 1985 timetable from the old .exe sim (hence my recent bug report on the Flashing Greens), so you’ve just taken a load of work off my shoulders! Thank you!

As for the upload itself, it seems the timetable has been placed in the ‘Official Software’ part of the downloads section rather than in the Peterborough folder. Would it be possible to have it moved there so people can find it if browsing the repository? Thanks!

Thanks for the link. I actually knew where it was, it is just that it is misfiled in the repository. If someone were to browse the Peterborough section of repository, they would not be able to find it there…

A few problems with the published timetable, specifically the Ferry Vans at Superior International.

The Senerio is that just before midnight 6E53 drops off the ferry vans at Superior to be later (next day) collected by 6H63 (at 13:10)

1)the drop off activity has the Use UID ticked however the train ID is entered. The Train ID should be FERRYVANS.

2) Drop coaches (at rear-- DCR) is selected. However it should be at the front (DCF) as the train backs into Superior and it is then an up train. ( if DCR is used 6E53 can't depart because of Ferryvans in front.

3) 6H63 has the same designator problem on the join (UID ticked but Train ID used)

4) When starting a new simulation 6E53 seeds at 333 which is after Superior, so it dosen't get to drop the vans and 6H63 has nothing to join, so it just waits. Suggest 6E53 seeds at 329 and drop its vans in Superior, timings will need to be about 30 min later.

Overall a great timetable, and I had a lot of fun with it

Thanks for that sit-rep, I actually looked at the Superior Int'l workings when I last looked & the tt & I wasn't convinced it would work properly with regards to the way the tt data is currently. IHowever I was waiting for someone to raise something about this on the forum as I could be wrong & it all worked OK as Vince diligently did the testing of thi timetable prior to its release & also made some edits to make it more realistic with regards to the DMU workings. When I get a few minutes during next week I'll take a look at it then as I'm currently updating some timetables for some forth coming sims. But thanks again for letting me know about that.
