Game Details

Next Stop......Manchester (Another Mad Multiplay game)
Hello All! Welcome back to one of my amazing games!

After the success of my Feltham and Western Series of games which covered the TT from 0000 - 0200 The next day, I have decided to continue the trend!

This time we head north to the hub of Manchester! It's a Scorching Wednesday in the north-west, and with a derailed train taking a few platforms out at Piccadilly things will heat up quickly!
The Heat will also affect the tracks and things may go horribly wrong! and with plenty of weird and whacky services around things will never be boring!

We will be running the infamous 08-04-2015 TT From Start To Finish Over a couple of sessions, and as with all my games they will Occur EVERY Sunday at approx 18:00
The Sims in use are:
Manchester Picc
Manchester South
Manchester East
And Stockport
North will now also be chained to assist with Delays and to allow diverging routes

Longsight and Piccadilly Panels (and maybe Oxford Rd) Will require the person to be on Teamspeak for effective communication
F10 can be used for all other panels

Normal Mode
2016 Era
Platform 9&10 OOU-

Absolute Block on

2012-18 Era
Normal Running

Everything Normal

Everything Normal

With 19 Total Panels, this is of the larger chains I will host! hence the early posting.
In addition, should anyone want to try out hosting for the first time, and can be available every Sunday then send me a PM and we can sort you out as this is an ideal chain to help you start :) I would be doing a "practice run" beforehand do not fret!

Panels will be allocated on a first come first serve basis as with my other games. and I'll keep track of panels allowing people to try different areas of the sim.

this first session will be the rather slow but steady berthing of yesterdays stock, and the night movements right up to around 7/8 am

Teamspeak Will be the Primary mode of Comms, though F10 can be in use if need be!

And for anyone interested, I'll be live streaming (yup you heard me right!) The chain from the Hosts POV at https://www.twitch.tv/elltrain3 :D

See you all there!

How are panels allocated?
27/07/2020 at 15:21
I'll add that to the description and they are allocated on a FCFS basis, but I'll keep track to allow people to try different areas (if they have them)
27/07/2020 at 15:53
Continuing the Sunday evening sessions. Will be good to try another area.

My Plymouth headache has gone now, but will be back for more!! Unfinished business to sort out! Currently we cant get trains from Cornwall over the Royal Albert Bridge due to a TCF and points failure! Then theres the sea wall!!!!

27/07/2020 at 15:57
Haha! sounds like fun XD and yeah seems an area that most people will own! and with a few twists thrown in it'll be equally as fun as Exeter if not more haha.

Is it really necessary to keep updating the game description? Unfortunately I'm not aware of any way of avoiding the relentless spam e-mails without cancelling my intention to join the game!
29/07/2020 at 14:00
I wasn't aware that editing it sent an email I do apologise! I was fixing a few typos however its all done now so you should be clear of emails
Again do apologise for that
09/08/2020 at 13:30
That's 3 more e-mails in the past 45 mins or so :-/
09/08/2020 at 13:32
Yes, had to make some urgent changes, with North being hosted as well now! but no more emails I promise
09/08/2020 at 13:37
I'll let you off!!!
09/08/2020 at 15:15
I am intending to join however I'm not sure what time I be back, hopefully I be back about 6.

Just so you're aware that's all.
09/08/2020 at 15:17
Yeah That's Fine, shouldn't be too busy in the early hours! but still plenty of panels and I'll be in TS the whole time to pop along when your ready! I'll be going till 10:30/11pm

As the developer of Manchester North, you're going to have fairly major issues in chaining Piccadilly and North together. The current chaining arrangements have had to be rewritten to take into account the Ordsall Curve, leading to the current North layout not having the updated chaining arrangements to the updated Piccadilly.
09/08/2020 at 16:48
We are running the 2015 TT for both and 2015 era for both so will it still not work? at all?
09/08/2020 at 17:02
Like I say, a lot of the chaining as been fully re-written to take into account the significantly different track layout in North. If you're happy with talking all trains to North via Ordsall Junction past signals, and not having TDs step between the two, then yea, fine, otherwise, no. I didn't look at how things act doing between North and Piccadilly, but I suspect it will be the same results
