Many thx to everyone. I finally got the loco to join. I think I overlooked the trap points and didnt lock them closed. THe loco and the train did a Hokey Koky dance for some time before they finally decided to join.

I also need to double-check if it affects the workings that change locos at Bank Quay. I don't recall that being an issue and you should have already notied an issue with 6S99-0956 by now. Please let me know if you see an issue with any loco changes.
I have just completed the 6S99 loco change on the base timetable without any issues.

Really enjoying these timetables, thanks.

On the 'through line stop' topic, there's a few missing from the 1996 timetable as well. I don't have reporting codes to hand, sorry, but it's those booked crew change on the GL/SL at Warrington.

Thank you, both for the kind words and the alert. I think there are six trains affected:
6E95-0204 (00.00 timetable only)
7M62MX-0521
6F69-0914
6E64-0952
6V23MWFO-1755
6E97-2217

The work-around is the same as 1977. Add a tick for each train to the "through lne stop" box at Warrington BQ. A new version 1.2 will be issued in due course adding the fixes.

Two additional "nits" noticed in testing the 1977 timetable today.

There is a note in the timetable "issues" section stating that trains into Dallam (steel) terminal have to reverse at Warrington Bank Quay. That was true when this timetable was written, but updates to the simulation now allow trains to reverse at WN173 (wrong direction signal by the "Dallam Sidings" label), which is close enough to being the ground frame present in 1977. This is purely a text change - the trains perform as desired right from the base timetable version.

On Mondays only, the DPU that forms 5J28MO-0430/4J28MO-0500 needs to use bay platform 3 at Wigan rather than 2. There should be ample room in platform 2, but the simulation software thinks otherwise.

Both to be included in V1.2 fixes.

V1.2 timetables are now available for the 1977 timetable and both 1996 versions. In each case, all bugs identified so far in this thread have been fixed.

Thanks for your help identifying issues, kind words and patience!

The attached picture looking south from Winwick Jn in August 1979 is a bijou bonus!

One question I have - what period was the Newton-le-Willows Motorail terminal operational? Considering it was wired when the WCML was I thought it would have seen use in this TT
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

According to this link , 1966(?) to 1973 when the traffic was moved to Crewe.

In Zone 6, no one can hear you scream...
