A stopped train 1A50 is created at 06:00 at Lane Head station, leaves at 06:01 and travels to Fishburn, arriving at 06:02. There it changes direction at 06:03, and at 06:04 becomes new service 1A51, which departs at 06:05 to return to Lane Head, arriving 06:06 where it remains.

Outward service data is as follows: – Headcode: 1A50, description: Lane Head to Fishburn, starting speed 0km/h, maximum speed: 120km/h, mass: 250 tonnes, braking force: 25 tonnes, power: 2500kW.

Inward service data is as follows: – Headcode: 1A51, description: Fishburn to Lane Head (no other data is required)

The new service 1A51 must have its own entry in the timetable and begin at the same time as this one finishes, i.e. 06:04.

Type 1A51;Fishburn to Lane Head then Enter This is the new service that carries on from 1A50. Since this is a new service the Service data is not repeated because it is the same as before. A new description can be given, as here, but this too can be omitted if required in which case the earlier description will be displayed in the train’s status information during operation.
Type 06:04;Sns;1A50 then Enter This is the starting command – ‘Sns’ represents ‘Start new service’. Note that the start time must be 06:04 to correspond to the finish time of the earlier linking service. The headcode of the earlier service 1A50 is also necessary so that the timetable knows which service to link back to.

This is slightly more complex and shows how to make a service change with a new headcode.

      Hi, There is a problem with 2603 at Annopol where the timetable has both an arrival and departure time, but the train should stay at that location until it becomes 2604, so I suggest having a single arrival time of 09:40 and no departure time. Similarly for 2604 at the same location, it should just have a single departure time, probably 09:48. Remember that a single time at a location can be arrival or departure, the timetable itself will work out which it should be. Also if one or both of the track elements at 73-22 and 72-22 are at location Rondo Zaba then 2603 should just have a single departure time from there, but if the elements are away from that location so that the train travels from there to Rondo Zaba then the arrival and departure times should be OK. I hope that solves the problems – Good Luck!
