I've just ran through this as part of my attempt to run through every simulation during lockdown. I've found it enjoyable and challenging until the trains dried up.

In the timetable (on my machine, at least) the last train from Merchandise Mart enters at 0753 and from Roosevelt 0645. Trains enter from Clinton until 0956. I know the Americans start work earlier than we do but not to this extent.

So for the last two hours of the TT the service consists of Green Line trains in one direction only and Purple Line trains, by definition unidirectional.

Is the TT corrupt?

Per the manual:

Quote:
A four-hour timetable is supplied.
Although the trains do seem to stop entering from Roosevelt too early.

There appear to be several TTs available in the download area- I've not checked if they're all-day, but assume they are.

Yes, I know it's only four hours, it was the Roosevelt and Merchandise Market arrivals I was questioning.

I've moved on to Coventry now but may return to the Loop later.

Are you playing the sims in alphabetical order? And have you a rough idea how long it will take to play all the sims that you have?

I did an exercise quite some time ago during the first Lockdown where I worked out roughly how long it would take me to play all the sims that I have. Can't remember exactly, but think it might have been in the region of a couple of months or so playing at 8 hours a day.
Can’t remember if that was just 1 timetable per sim or all of the timetables.
Might do it again just out of interest.
