I've sent in a winter 2018 King's Cross timetable. Please feel free to post any issues here. The timetable has been run and doesn't appear to have any major issues, though there's a little work to do on freight paths when I get time.

I might have a go at doing a variation for this week's Brighton blockade service, which has some amendments to various diagrams.

3B051 which becomes 2J051 turns around in Plat 1 at HERTFORD NORTH according to the published timetable and according to the WTT and the GBTT.
Is there now a crossover that is not shown in Kings Cross version 3.4? (I just used Plat 3 instead)
looking at opentraintimes.com, yes there is indeed a crossover :-).

Great timetable, thanks

Yes the facing crossover was added at the same time as the resignalling between Hertford and Stevenage. Fortunately it’s possible to simply use platforms 2 or 3, and fortunately this doesn’t cause any conflicts. Sooner or later a timetable is going to appear where there is a conflict though!

There’s a few other bodges to accommodate a timetable based around infrastructure that isn’t on Simsig - trains which exit via the country end of Hornsey Depot is another.

small correction (but a trap for young players)
5U33 enters Letchworth CS (south) at 1135
should be 1235 or later. (not due to arrive Letchworth until 1255)

This is deliberate, as my understanding is the train stays on the reception road throughout its reversal.

Again the Simsig layout here isn’t quite prototypical (I’m not sure if it’s a simplification of reality or merely outdated). There is the option to put it in the reversing siding if one needs to put anything else into or out of the sidings. The signal post telephone ringing every few minutes is annoying and needless to say wouldn’t happen in real life.
