I have just finished running through this - what a GREAT timetable with all the loco changes & run rounds. 'Just for fun' I did it on "one of those days", so large delays and many equipment failures, including at one time the Patchway-Filton route being unavailable, requiring Wales-BTM services to be diverted to reverse at Parkway (with a loco run-round of course!)
I did have a couple of sets of trains refuse to join in BTM, even with trying variations of shunt forward, clearing the St Andrews crosses, etc. that have previously been discussed, but these were ultimately solvable by abandoning join and sending the offending loco to stable out of the control area.
There was one timetable anomaly that I came across right near the end - 6V812 arrives at Parkway DGL from the east, and splits into 8V812 at front. 8V812 then heads off, and 6V812 follows it even though it has not had a loco added to it!
To just have one such issue in a timetable with the number of trains and movements there are in this one is superb. Thanks and well done!

I agree,this timetable is a brilliant bit of work . Kurt has done well with this one.Nice to see all the different routes work as they should, Divides and joins are faultless.! Remember the nightmares on the old version of bristol.!!
You deserve a medal Kurt.!!

Kurt, I agree to Didcot, another 1985-brilliant-work.
Just a question to 5M221/5M222 becoming 5M223 after loco runaround (0M221/0M222). Both (5M221/5M222) are set to start with a 50% chance. A rule excludes 5M222 if 5M221 runs. So due to 50% chance for both it is possible, that none of them runs, and so 5M223/0M221/0M222 won't run. Was this your intent? Or should at least one of them (5M221/222) run? Just came over it because I recognized 5M223 left over when I hided entered trains in TT list and 5M223 didn't start although time elapsed.
And for me if at least one of them runs --> more work --> more fun.
