I've played the modern timetable on LTS so I'm looking forward to seeing a 1980s timetable on LTS, although I've got to ask but 58050 do you have any plans for more 1980s timetables?

I am still also working on the winter SR 1982/83 timetables to go with the Victoria Central one that i already out there. However these will be produced in the very well published timeframes.

No worries, it's just I find the 1980s timetables to be very much intensive compared to modern day timetables so interested to see what they were like back then.

Ajax that's all I write is BR era timetables. That said there will be only 2 or 3 written later than April 1994 when the railways were privatised & the intro duction of Railtrack. The LTS 1994 timetable being one of them. The other I'll do is Reading 1994-1995 as I have all the stuff for that one incl. Reading station working books for that era both weekdays & Saturdays so when reading ever sees the light of day then I'll start on that one. I don't have any plans at present to do an LTS 1980s era timetable. The problem is the platform allocations at Fenchurch Street. Luckily in the post 1994 LTS WTTs the platforms numbers at Fenchurch Street, Shoeburyness & intermeadiate station where trains terminate are printed in the WTT which makes it easy t not only get the platforms correct, but also make it wasy to allocate the next workings to passenger trains. Plus I have the loco diagrams for 1994for RfD, TlFSE & TlFNE & TlFW as at this time I was Duty Shift Manager at Stratford ROC for Trainload Freight South East. But be warned in this LTS 1994 timetable the passenger services between Fenchurch Street - Shoeburyness - Fenchurch Street don't all call at the same stations all the time. There are some very odd calling patterns on some services.

Two pointers:

1. What were TlFSE & TlFNE & TlFW?

2. I hope you carry on bringing these BR timetables to us

1. Those are abbreviations for Trainload Freight South East, Trainload Freight North East & Trainload Freight West which later became Mainline Freight, Loadhaul & Transrail.
2. Yes I'll keep writing BR era timetables until I either get too old to do it or I die. It keeps my mind active & also providing developers produce sims that cater for the BR era.

Many thanks to you, Vince and all the other TT writers who produce heritage TT's, they are more and more becoming the only TT's I run now. Most modern era TT's keep you busy with volume of trains but can be repetitive and have often have little variety of traffic (no slight on the efforts of the TT writers, it is just how the modern railway tends to be in many locations). Having grown up in the 70's, the heritage TT's with their sometimes lesser number of trains but often greater variety of traffic including the slower freights, loco-hauled services, trips and all the associated shunting moves hold my interest much more as it is what I can remember and very often much thought is required to keep things fluid. Please do keep up the good work.

Regards,

Phil (one happy heritage TT user)

Currently writing a timetable for West Hampstead for summer/autumn 2018. Thameslink services are 100% entered in minus the trains at normally go to the ECML, just need a few tweaks here and there. I've also organised EMT services into diagrams for 4/5/7/9/10 car runnings plus HST's, probably not 100% accurate because there's no carriage working notice available but it all tally's up and works. Hoping to start testing within the next week or so.
