Hi Mark, thank you for that. In the directory there are a number of files. One is named Kings Cross 1985.wtt with a file date of 10/10/2017 and there is another named Kings cross 1985 v5.33.wtt which is dated 30/09/2006 and has its' partner .wtr file with it. The two .wtt files are identical sizes and I think that, despite the loader telling me it had downloaded a brand new Kings Cross 1985 file, it hasn't done so. Appreciate your help.
no prob, they are older versions of the timetable if the have an *.wtr file for them (this from the days of the sim not being of the loader varity) the newest of the 1985 TT set is file name "Kings Cross 1985 0000 Start.WTT" this one does not need a *.wtr file, as timetables developed on loader sims intergrate them into the *.wtt file. although it will still work, it maybe best to use the newest version of the timetable.

Having looked at the 1985 TT set that was released for kx loader there are 3 1985 timetables for it, 2 are of the old timetable format (*.wtt and *.wtr) and one on the loader timetable format, (just *.wtt)



Timetable file name: Kings Cross 1985 0000 Start.WTT, loader format timetable compleate with rules. This is the most up to date version of these timetables

Timetable file name: Kings Cross 1985.WTT, standalone format, has no rules in the timetable as no *.wtr downloaded via updater, is an older version of above timetable, so maybe worth mods\developers removing it from the update server. someusers may have a *.wtr file if they moved it from the standalone installation when the sim was updated to loader.

Timetable file name: Kings Cross 1985 0600 Start.WTT standalone format, has no rules in the timetable as no *.wtr downloaded via updater, someusers may have a *.wtr file if they moved it from the standalone installation when the sim was updated to loader. it maybe worth updating to the loader timetable format so it has rules for it

Thank you all for your help.
Using my home PC (as opposed to the work laptop earlier) I have:
- downloaded Pascal's 1985-6 timetable which I had not noticed before
- clarified that I have Kings cross 1985 0000 start - which appears to be the old Kurt Sicklemore timetable brought up to date (by whom?)
- got rid of most of the earlier copies including any old .wtt/.wtr versions

I have been working on a revised version of Kurt's timetable plus some of his add-ons which make KX really challenging - but some of Kurt's add-ons were hopelessly optimistic (7 minutes to run round in Welwyn platform 1 takes some doing) and others totally unworkable (New Barnet inner suburban reversers) - so I'll now base it on the revised 1985 version and look forward to a spell with Pascal's 85-86 timetable.

I really appreciate all your help this afternoon - I am still not clear quite what happened but I guess all is well that ends....

Btw - which of the timetable import/export tools still work? It will be easier to export to a spreadsheet for example than edit inline,

Many thanks again

Mike
