Hi,

The CScot manual doesn't state what the revised platform Lengths are for the EGIP era.

I've got the info on the platform lengths, but I think when I mentioned it the issue was going to be getting access to the data regarding the new TC breaks. Also a wee bit of the point work has changed within the station.

Further more in the EGIP era there are significant changes to track layouts at Greenhill Upper and Larbert and quite a few signal changes throughout the sim, in particular at Dunblane.

As far as I know they have not changed yet in the sim as the platform lengthening is more recent.

Edit: Hap was earlier to post and more detailed.

Nothing has changed in sim since we had the blocked at QST.

The changes came into effect from August 2016.

Few pics below of the new layout at several locations.

P3 is now full 8 car, P2 is the same buffer line but only 6 or 7 car (Hap ?)

E-G services generally now 8 car, so must use P3 or P7
The end wall onto George Square has just opened up, but still temporary entrances from the west side, or sneak out the taxi road.

Low level access still via P2 or P7, not from outside.

The other platform extensions will not be done until September to keep capacity during August (locals back at work / tourists / Edinburgh festival)

Platform 2 - 171m can now accommodate a 7 car 380/385, along with 3,4 & 7.

Platform 3 - 196m can now accommodate an 8 car train formation in addition to platform 7.

So as it stands:

Platform 1: 4
Platform 2: 7
Platform 3: 8
Platform 4: 7
Platform 5: 6
Platform 6: 6
Platform 7: 8

I've not been in the station since the work has been done, so I haven't seen the layout now. I can only imagine 2 will be extended once there is enough space for it. i.e a route walking route to platform 1, and the barriers are taken back further once the front of the station is a bit more complete?

I'll do some more digging.

The Sim was updated with the revised platform lengths as they were anticipated at the time of EGIP era writing.

The Sim Platform lengths P2 to P4 in the EGIP era were set as: 171, 196, 196, 171.

Just realised Bill, that you said same buffer line. (I've not been at work for about a month and not in QSt in about 2/3. Not been following my operation updates.
