Can the new stations at Apperley Bridge and Kirkstall Forge be added to the Leeds NW area sim map and timetables please?
I am busy writing timetables for the Winter 2017-2018 period and am unable to add these stations into the timetable as they are not in the sim (one is shown as tbc) which means that the timetable will be slightly out if they are ommitted.

Thanks for any help

Phil ....

People have asked for new stations to be added to sims, without a result.

Forgive me if this comes across as rude (it really is not intended that way)...but if developers re-did sims every time a new station/signal/trackwork came out, then the list of work to be done would be endless and there would be no time left for making new sims!

I personally can not see it happening I'm afraid...I may be proven wrong though!

I don't quite see your point here Aron.

It isnt unreasonable to request new stations to be added to sims (even if not acted upon straight away)

Adding a station, unless there is significant track and signal alterations required as a result does not take necessarily take much time. All thats really needed is the location of the platform, the time taken to draw a platform on screen, and location in data (Possibly era work as well depending on the sim).

However, for track, signal alterations etc, this does take significantly more time and effort, not mentioning the new details of the layout, track circuits, points, signals etc would be needed.

No offence taken. Just thought it wouldn't take much to do as no track alterations etc are needed.
Doesn't do any harm to ask.

In this case, timetable locations for Apperley Bridge and Kirkstall Forge already exist which suggests that there was/is an intention to add them to the sim at some point.

Exeter being a great example where we have two new stations (newcourt and Cranbrook) with a new era to run them in. This was very much user request driven.

Yes I tried adding these stations into the timetable editor as one of them is listed as "TBC" but the editor wouldn't let me add them to the timetable, because I presume the stations don't actually exist on the sim track plan. Not to worry I'll crack on with the timetable with them ommitted until it allows me to enter them in.

This is my first attempt at creating a timetable and I'm enjoying the challenge !

Exeter with added stations is great !!, Thanks to those who made the additions even though I would have liked Honiton and Axminster be added as functional as regards to terminating trains and starting of new services from those stations.

I doubt it could be done due to screen limitations?

Apologies if already asked on this forum

Once a simulation is released, its boundaries are generally fixed. If the simulation were extended to include Honiton's control area, the entry point to the simulation would move, and all existing timetables would be unplayable unless they were updated.

Timetable rules can be added to simulate trains terminating outside the area. For example, if 2A01 terminates at Honiton and forms 2A02 back to Exeter, the rule "2A02 must not enter until 3 minutes after 2A01 leaves the area" would simulate the train turning back and forming a new service.

Honiton already can be used as a terminus as steamer has explained. Anything further east would probably form a seperate sim to meet up with salisbury.
