Hello all,

I have just submitted this timetable and just awaiting approval. I would appreciated if anyone can report any bugs, as I think I had some platform sharing headcodes wrong (for a small amount) and possibly some others and I jotted them down on a notepad. I spent a few weeks doing half and hours testing through the timetable, and now I cannot for the life of me find my notes!!

I don't want to start testing all over again, but it's not totally unplayable I just seem to recall it was a few minor things in the morning.

Included is the timetable, and also a saved file from the start of the timetable with line blocks covered in blue and signals collared, and various TD Berths filled with items and -T3- marks taken from Open Train Times maps seen on that day.

This timetable is based on Real Time Trains schedule on 21st February with Northern and Cross Country Diagrams taken from info on RTT. Trans Pennine diagrams for the day were sent to me, and Virgin Pendonlino diagrams are from UK Modern EMU Gen group.

On this day, engineering work is taking place around the Oxford Road area, and there are no through trains between Salford Crescent and Manchester Piccadilly. Buses replace trains between Manchester Piccadilly and Birchwood / Warrington Bank Quay.

Buses also replace trains between Bolton and Wigan Wallgate via Westhoughton, and between Manchester Victoria and Wigan Wallgate via Swinton.

Until around 1600, Manchester Victoria / Blackburn - Southport services are diverted via Eccles,

There were also problems on the day somewhere between Bolton and Preston, TPE services were diverted off route via Eccles and some Blackpool North services cancelled and one curtailed at Bolton. Later in the day TPE services resumed via Bolton but some were cancelled.

An easy timetable designed for one player operation.
