I have submitted a reworked version of the Summer 2020 (Mondays to Fridays) timetable, optimised for sim 3.7. Due to the amount of rework to make it compatible with 3.7 I am treating this as a completely new timetable.

The following general changes have been applied:
* LNER diagrams now as per long term planning
* Some changes to platform allocation, incoming/outgoing working and ECS at King's Cross since the original version of the WTT was produced, seems to relate to LNER diagram changes and platform 0 not going out of use as originally intended.
* Hornsey K453 timings added where applicable
* Minor corrections to platforming at Alexandra Palace and Finsbury Park, also one correction to platforming at Hertford North
* A couple of minor corrections to GTR diagrams

The following v3.7 changes have been applied:
* Platform numbers added for Royston, Baldock, Letchworth, Biggleswade, Potters Bar and Highbury & Islington as per WTT
* Letchworth A/D Line timings added for moves entering ex Letchworth CS
* DCF line added for Hitchin where applicable
* Sandy fringe replaces Biggleswade, also Biggleswade timings added in consequence
* Langley South Junction, Bragbury Junction and Molewood Junction timings added where applicable
* Moves ex Harringay reversing sidings towards Alexandra Palace have a Hornsey timing point added
* Two trains now enter service via country end of Hornsey Depot as per reality, then reverse via Alexandra Palace platform 1. Trains booked to head straight south continue to enter ex Bounds Green Depot (south).
* Navarino Road Junction fringe replaces Dalston Kingsland, also Canonbury West Junction and Highbury Vale Junction timings added where applicable
* Ferme Park Sidings exit point changed to Ferme Park Rec Line GBRF where applicable (no change to behaviour)
* Harringay Rev Sidings timing point changed to Harringay Up Reversing Siding (no change to behaviour)

Operating restrictions:
* Thameslink services enter / leave simulation via King's Cross Goods (and will now get a phone call from shunter, unfortunately)
* Trains booked to leave Hornsey Depot via country end and reverse via Hornsey Up Carr Line enter via Bounds Green Depot (south) instead
* Trains booked to enter Hornsey Depot via country end must be routed via Alexandra Palace platform 2
* Trains booked to reverse via Stevenage platform 5 reverse Langley Junction instead (this will require some working around for any freight trains due to pass whilst the reversing move occurs)

Please note due to lack of time on my part this timetable has only been tested up to 1300, so please feel free to post to this thread any issues / problems.

Hope this is enjoyable - this is quite a bit improved upon the original release of this timetable in a number of ways.

Hi. Would you be able to confirm if a timetable issue or a sim issue? Trains entering the majority of platforms at Kings X are entering at 5MPH when in real life they enter at 15. Trains on the UP Slow 2 where it joins the US 1 just after Finsbury park, Trains are going through this section at 8MPH. Trains on the Hornsey Crossover are going at 3MPH.

No speed restrictions are on.

Sounds possibly like no floor on defensive driving rules?

I suspect that's what it is. There's going to be a revised version of this TT at some point soon as there are a couple of small issues which have come to light, so I will have a look at this at part of that.

Indeed, the defensive driving rules don't have a lower floor. In fact, they are set to only be active between 0-40mph linespeed.
Many of the consists also don't select the correct driving rules (set to sim defaults instead).
Tiny issue, 1T13 is missing a passing time tick at Woolmer Green.
