Retrospectively updating power types in Train Categories 03/08/2020 at 21:30 #130342

Evening all,

Came across an oddity that's a touch annoying - writing a timetable for Cowlairs / Central Scotland, and had the 385s set to AC only. Unfortunately it seems the EGIP wiring isn't quite complete in the sim, as one of the trains queried a valid route with incorrect traction (covered in other forum posts).

To get around the issue, I tried changing the power types in the train category list... but it appears that all the timetables I've already written and set to the train category aren't all automatically updating - while the available power types have updated, only one of the initial power type boxes have been ticked, meaning an activity has to force them to change power source... Is this deliberate, and is there a way round this other than correcting every timetable?

Cheers!

Which bits are missing wires? I don't recall seeing mention of it on the latest release of CScot.

Was doing some testing, and an AC only unit (1R45) sat at Bishopbriggs (CE45) called in a wrong route (wrong traction) - route was set straight through Eastfield & Cowlairs (CE47, CC51, CQ53). You can re-create it by running the timetable seeded at 00:00 (not Monday)

On Cowlairs, at a quick glance it looks like T2119 Down line shortly after Bishopbriggs isn't AC.

I've looked over Cscot and can't find any missing AC.

Ignore, I was looking at CScot and not Cowlairs
