Three heritage timetables are being produced for the Wigan Wallgate simulation. Summer 1977 is represented in both weekday and Saturday versions and is already available for download. A 1990 weekday timetable is in testing and should be available by the end of this week.

All three feature some tricky bits, with permissive platform working for passenger trains a feature at times. Careful regulating of arrivals, departures and shunt manoeuvres at Wallgate is a must. There is freight too: unusually, more in 1990 than 1977 with the "binliner" workings to/from Appley Bridge domestic waste terminal.

Wigan is a deceptively easy looking simulation that can easily trap the unwary. Easy enough for one player, but surprisingly complex at times. Definitely not just "passing traffic" as you might think at first glance. I like it!

Please log any bugs found in this thread. All the timetables have been run through multiple times, but the law of Sod always applies.

Excuse me, but is it just me who can't find the 1990 one?

Whatlep said it's currently in testing, so presumably it hasn't been released yet :-)

Update 22/01/2021

A gremlin crept into the 1977 Saturday timetable and wasn't picked up in validation by either me or the Mods. Very early on, incoming ECS 5F65 at 0620 had an incorrect ID for its subsequent working. Now fixed in V1.1 and with the Mods for approval.

Apologies to anyone who downloaded V1.0 of the Saturday timetable, though nobody has yet flagged the issue!
