What I would personally find useful is if ARS would route something if the schedule has been modified, instead of making the train then default to non-ARS. This is certainly how modern-day LU signalling works, not sure if any of the modern systems on NR also work in this way.
As long as the TT is valid, ARS will happily run to the modified timetable. Yu can also use Special Timing Patterns (STPs) - useful if a headcode is _X__ (because ARS won't route it).

Forthose of you at the meet reporting an issue with regards to 6E42 entering twice. That issue has now been fixed. The rules has been corrected so that shouldn't now happen when the West Yorkshire sim has been released.

Interestingly enough this does seem to actually work, despite the warning message you get about ARS not knowing about last-minute changes if you edit the timetable via F2 - you do need to make the train ARS again (even if it's currently already in ARS) do copy the timetable edits into the ARS timetable, though.

Two million people attempt to use Birmingham's magnificent rail network every year, with just over a million of them managing to get further than Smethwick.

As was said at the meet it is hoped to release West Yorkshire and Sheffield in the near future. Sandhills will be later on in the year.

West Yorkshire

Sheffield (ROC)

Sandhills (Merseyrail)

Sorry to miss the meet at Birmingham this year but I was in North Devon. Glad everyone had a good time and I will look forward to the release of Sandhills, Sheffield and West Yorkshire. The sims for Sheffield and West Yorkshire look fab: well done to those who have put the work into creating them.

Hope to see some of you at Derby in July.
Dave

While the Sheffield re-release is of course appreciated, it's a bit of a shame about the 80s mode, though...

looking at the Sheffield map I noticed the crossover from up to down at Dore has a different icon, looking at all the others I could see nothing the same, not being a programmer I wondered if it was worth drawing attention too. So looking forward to getting into the new ones, Superb Work as always, Thanks.

The symbol is an end of overlap marker; some simulations show them on angled track others don't

For the tape can you please clarify whether Sandhills looks fab.

Kind regards,

Regarding the sim, it's clearly going to be Ferrybridge power station control room. 40 MGR workings and one misrouted HST that accepts the route and works round the loop.
I'd forgotten about the Ferrybridge incident! :-)
Is any more of this story available to those of us who weren't there?

A XC HST was diverted between Doncaster and York due to engineering and ran via Ferrybridge.

Ferrybridge box routed it into the power station in error and the driver accepted the route. Apparently he ended up doing a full circuit of the power station.

Indeed it does Andrew. Thought I said that after the London meet (which I was at) but the new sims all look fab and I look forward to the release of Sandhills too. :)
