I have downloaded the timetable ( Swindon A & B IECC - SWINDID 130220)


I appear to be missing something there are no rules or decisions in this timetable, although a number of trains are programmed to enter at the same time with identical running times, for example 6 trains enter at Kennnington Jn at 08:34. and they all try to run.

Is it possible to download the rules or decisions? or is my file corrupted?

I have just downloaded and looked at the V1.2 of the TT, and there are definitely no rules or decisions contained in the timetable file.

Rules for a long time are now saved inside the WTT file so this suggests that there were no rules or decisions created before this version of the WTT file was uploaded to the server

I'm trying to run the amended version of the timetable. However, right from the start, there is ARS trouble in the Didcot East Jn and Moreton Cutting Jn area.

4O33 and following trains using the Avoiding line fail to set the route segment across Didcot East Jn, but do set it across Moreton Cutting Jn, leaving a gap that I have to fill manually. I can't see what the difference here is versus other TTs that do work, except that there is no (minor) entry for Moreton Cutting Jn. The timetable validates just fine without the latter.

The other problem is exposed by 1C38, which changes from the Down Relief line to the Down Main at Moreton Cutting Jn. Again there is nothing obvious wrong with the timetable entries, but the route across the junction is not set by ARS even though the following route segment is, leaving a gap to fill manually.

I suspect a problem with the sim's ARS handling...

Thanks for the Feedback, I have been looking at this and will try some other variations. I think that it maybe a conflict of some kind between the current layout and ARS programming and the Sim version

Make sure you're validating the timetable when editing it (there's an option in F3 to do it by default when you close the editor), this should flag any invalid path/line code combinations. It's possible that the combination required by the simulation doesn't match what the WTT provides.

It would appear that problems are created by the omission of Moreton Cutting Jn from timetables. This applies to up trains using the AL, also with down trains transferring from ML to AL or P3 Didcot. The latter is caused by not having the transfer to RL @ Moreton Cutting rather than Didoct east. So the TTs for the latter should read Moreton Cutting Jn ML->RL then Didoct East RL->RL or RL-> AL as appropriate.

When I get 5 minutes I will have a look. Thanks for the feedback

That explains the eastbound problem. However, there was also a problem with a westbound train, which didn't seem to have any missing TT entries. Any theories there?
