Now in the downloads section is Birmingham New Street Winter 2017 (Sun).

A realistic timetable taken from the WTT with some STP workings in the January-February 2017 period.

The TT starts at 08:00 and runs through to 03:00 the following morning.

Being a Sunday TT makes this a more manageable TT for single users,however its still quite busy.Being a modern TT,services run to similar patterns,but this can change throughout the day.

It was tested in easy mode,so I haven't tried this yet with other scenarios !

Will aim to run this as a multiplayer game in the near future so will report back any issues (if there are any!)

Thanks for the new TT!

This looks to be an excellent timetable, so I'll start by saying thank you!

5W13 entered from Soho LMD heading for Wolverhampton but never reported in at Soho North Jn hence never reports in at Galton Jn or probably anywhere else on it's schedule. Normally I wouldn't bother to report such a fairly minor thing, in this case 5W13 has an associated rule regarding the 2W13 service it forms, so if it doesn't report in as having left the area (because it would probably still be looking for Soho North Jn by the time it gets to Wolverhampton) then I would assume 2W13 wouldn't run.

Not sure if this is a timetable or simulation issue, but either way just thought I'd mention.

Thanks UKTM When testing, I didn't have any problems with 5W13's exit. The rule kicked in and 2W13 duly entered.
Having run some tests,this happens each time, although you are correct in that the F2 screen shows 5W13 location as Soho Depot until exit.

BarryM you mention the 1st location should be NS331 ,however this is a reversing point and if used as passing point, it throws up a warning in the analyzer.Secondly, it also makes no difference. 5W13 still exits,2W13 still enters with rule but F2 simply shows 5W13 at Soho NS331 until exit.
In reality there should be a timing point on the loop (Dn Soho Gds Loop).

EDIT UPDATE:
I have played around and found that if you have NS331 as a 1st location set as a stop,the train will stop and await at NS331. If you then select route from NS331 to NS328 the train oddly changes direction and moves and awaits at NS333 (northern exit of loop) and once route set, will continue to Wolverhampton with the TT stepping up.

Is 3J011 meant to stop at Birmingham International (Platform 4)? Has a departure time of 13:06 but no arrival time, which makes me wonder if the pass checkbox was missed?

There is no requirement to have an arrival time for any stop the departure time is all which is needed.
It was quite standard on older timetables to not have an arrival time especially at short stops or request stops.

Yes, I'm fully aware of all that. 3J011 is an assumedly operational RHTT; seems a little peculiar for that to stop so briefly in such a location, hence my post. It certainly isn't stopping to let something pass.
