2N75's odd timetable appears to include time travel 27/11/2019 at 22:19 #121971

Still working my way through this timetable when at 14:12 I suddenly noticed something odd about 2N75’s timetable. The train is due to depart New Street platform 2B at 14:31:30 and, according to the timetable (see screenshot), arrives at Sutton Coldfield at 14:30:30 which is 1 minute before it departs BNS.
Has the driver acquired a Tardis?
I think I’ll just rewrite the tt sending the train in a loop via Soho South Junction, Perry Barr, Whitton, Aston and back to an appropriate platform at New Street ready to send it to its final destination of Kings Norton. Unless anybody has a better solution??

Apologies if something has already been posted, but if it was, I couldn’t find it.

I could hazard a guess but could also be miles out, as always a savegame is much better. A screenshot alone doesn't really help any of us to help resolve the issue.

I'm not sure what is actually in P2 if the simtime is 1412 then 2N75 is not due to enter till 1428

Likely due to a known timetable bug (mantis 22277):
2W05/P42955 has an incorrect next working.
Current set as 2N75/P41727
Should be 2N75/P41729

Have you had 2N75 berthed in 2B all morning?

I have found the service in question (2W05, the 07:19 Wolverhampton – Birmingham New Street) arriving at platform 2B and which forms train 2N75 at approximately 07:42.

As it's a known bug, I presume that a saved game as requested by Meld isn't necessary.

Thanks for letting me know.

Thought that I would have a bit of fun with 2N75 so abandoned its timetable, sent it to the curve at Perry Barr via Aston and held it there for a while. Then sent it to BNS New Street tunnels where I reversed it in the after setting a route into platform 9B. Then sent it on its way at 14:51 as per the incorrect timetable.

A waste ot time I know, but interesting nevertheless
