K222 DCBG (Reverse) and train 5B967
I’m currently playing the Kings Cross 1985 timetable and have encountered a problem for the second time. In the first instance I just abandoned that train’s timetable, manoeuvred it manually and reinstated its’ timetable once I had the train on the correct path.
On this occasion I want to see if there is the possibility of editing the timetable instead. The timetable doesn’t look right to me anyway and I couldn’t see many options for alternative routes in the editor.
If you look at the attached timetable for 5B967 you will see that it is supposed to reverse at K222 DCBG, proceed to Hitchin, presumably P2, where it’s TD changes to 2B80, waits 41 minutes and then proceeds to Biggleswade. Also attached is the areas signal plan
Firstly, as far as I can see, K222 is within CMEE, so I assume that it reverses at 217. The only way that I can see to get 5B967 into P2 from 217 is via 699 and 232 (North Reverse).
Now, I could of course be completely wrong, in which case could somebody put me right by explaining what should be done. I know that I could fiddle things again, but thought there must be a better way.

Found the solution. It had to go towards Letchworth to signal 228 and then from there to to Hitchin P2

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.

I don't think that it was your one, as yours is 1985 - 1986.
This one was 1985 0000 Start.WTT and there's another with an 0600 start.
Not sure who produced them.

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.

OK can't really help you if it's not my timetable. Although my timetable is listed as 1985-1986 the station working book I used for that timetable was from May 1985 - Sept. 1985 & is accurate unlike the King's Cross 1985 timetable you are running.

Thanks anyway. You'll notice that I did work out the solution as shown in my edited post above.
No doubt I'll get around to using your timetable quite soon as Kings Cross is my favourite sim at the moment. I'm actuall running three Kings Cross sims and have to transfer 'saved games' and 'snapshots' into separate sim folders to keep from getting them mixed up.

Glad that I'm retired and only working part-time. Don't know how I would fit the sims in if I was still working full time. Not much sleep I suppose.

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.

Glad to hear you resolved it. That 1985 KX timetable was very good when it came our, however once Id checked the actual 1985 station working book there were a number of discrepancies & train formations which led me to believe he hadn't got that publication when he wrote the timetable. My KX 1985 timetable is based on the actual BR documentation for the period. At some point in the not too distant future I've got to update that timetable as I now have the loco diagrams for the period & so can allocate the right type of loco to the trains in the timetable which should make the experience even better.

Look forward to your update. In the meantime, I'll just carry on with the timetables that I already have.

I'm sure that if I have any more problems I'll find a work-around.
