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

Update from me for the year:

Existing CSCOT / Cowlairs timetables for 1993 & 1984 checked and updated for sim updates and released.

Cowlairs 2016 on the go now - that is with Queen St shut.
Not sure if it will be fun, stressful or boring yet. Hopefully a month or two for that.

Then I expect to go on to Motherwell (the existing 1984 needs a check over and 1993 needs finishing).

I'm currently trying my first serious foray into TT writing with a Piccadilly TT for Saturday 30th December. Approaching 9am now which should speed things up as a lot of services become clock face at that point!

Engineering work on Platforms 13/14 mean the sim is effectively split into two, so I'm initially working on the south side which can be released to perhaps offer a slightly easier alternative to the full on weekday TT.

That said, the possession means platforms 9-14 were unavailable so easy is perhaps the wrong word; I was working and platforms were being changed constantly! However, I don't intend to put any blockage trains in so it is up to the player how authentic to the day they wish to make it, not least as most of the WTT retains the standard day platforming!

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Manchester North 2007 (with Oldham loop in operation) released 01/01/2018. Can be downloaded in the usual way.

Manchester Piccadilly (the northern bit) 1988 is complete for passenger/ parcels times. Should be ready within 2 weeks. The year and geography (the lines to/from Manchester Victoria) are specifically chosen to make this a viable, true-to-life simulation for 1 person using the Manchester Piccadilly simulation

Further simulations for Manchester Piccadilly based on either the 1988 or 1991 timetables may happen as time allows.

I confirm I am working on a timetable for the Newport simulation which will, I hope, work despite the lack of a modern layout at Severn Tunnel Junction.

The timetable, which is for Good Friday, features the newer varieties of GWR rolling stock (Classes 150, 158 and 800 for certain, plus some 166s if any are booked in the timetable) as well as the usual variety (or lack thereof?) from Arriva Trains Wales. The timetable will feature services that don't normally operate through Newport but this will be due to the resignalling taking place in the Bristol area which will see the transfer, over 5 days (30th March to 3rd April 2018 inclusive), of the Bristol Temple Meads area, plus part of the Severn Beach and Bath lines, to TVSC Didcot.

I hope to get this one released: it should be good fun.

Dave

I've written and am currently testing a Tyneside timetable based on the actual workings last week, during the Newcastle track upgrade works. What hopefully makes this an interesting timetable is that anything coming into or leaving Newcastle station from the South end has to travel via KEB East Junction and instead go in from the north (in effect turning Newcastle from a through station into a terminus).

I hope to iron out any issues in the next week or so and to get it released.

This is news to me. Any track layout or signalling changes? I don't promise any such would be incorporated in the existing sim as it depends on the scale of changes.

As the above link suggests, I think it's more renewal than "upgrade", as Network Rail haven't said there's any changes besides improving the reliability by replacing worn out equipment.

Perhaps a marketing manager somewhere thought "upgrade" sounded better.
