Hello all,

I have released a timetable designed for solo players, or those wanting to get grips with the layout, which is just currently awaiting approval.

The default seed time is 05:00, which is quiet, or there is a later seed time of 07:00 when there is a bit more on the map. I will need some reports on any issues, as I don't have much time to test it all the way to the end at midnight, but please be aware I have included platform clashes that are in the real TT, however I am more than happy to check any in case they are errors on my behalf.

There is just over 1,000 movements in the day and having had a small test in the first 2 hours, I could easily handle Selhurst/Norwood - Stoats Nest Jn with ARS off, and have time to check ARS is doing OK elsewhere.

I've also tried to recreate the actual day as best as I can, so there will be a small amount of Thameslink services to/from Bedford you will not see as these were cancelled due to a a lack of train crew (and it is only a small handful). Also a couple of services were cut short due to problems and these are also simulated.

This TT also simulates the few alterations to services today, the New Cross Gate, Redhill and Three Bridges - Brighton blocks being the major ones:

- Three Bridges to Brighton and Haywards Heath to Lewes closed all day. Buses replace trains on these routes.
An hourly Southern London Victoria to/from Brighton service is in operation and are diverted via Horsham, Littlehampton and Shoreham.
Services from Ore/Hastings that would run to London Victoria via Haywards Heath are diverted and terminate at Brighton.

- London Bridge to Norwood Junction closed all day. An engineering possession at New Cross Gate has closed the route via Forest Hill. Rail replacement buses are in operation between West Croydon and New Cross Gate.
Services from Caterham are doubling up as Croydon to London Bridge via Tulse Hill stopping services.
There is one Uckfield service from East Croydon, which will then operate as Oxted - Uckfield services. There is a unit swap from a 2 car to a 4 car set at around 15:45.
West Croydon to London Victora via Crystal Palace services are unaffected.

- Redhill is closed all day with rail replacement buses in operation between Guildford - Gatwick (GWR services), Horley - Purley via Redhill and Redhill - Edenbridge.
All services are running via the Quarry Lines. The Gatwick Express is reduced to a half hourly service, with early morning services extended to a 35 minute duration time.


Any issues please do let me know on this thread, and I hope it's manageable for one person!


Kind Regards,

James.

This sounds great, so Three Bridges is definitely going on my Christmas/Birthday wish list.
If if I don't get it as a gift, I'll buy it anyway

Been approved and now in download section, sorry for the delay there was a couple of errors in my half that needed fixing (I generally miss something! easily done when you've been working flat out on it!)

I've noticed myself that 2Jxx's which split at Purley, the front section to Caterham will trip to non ARS when it leaves Purley, however if you manually reset it to be ARS it will run fine.
