This simulation includes the North Downs Line from Reading to Guildford, the Waterloo to Reading line from Reading to Staines, the Frimley line from Ascot to Frimley and the Chertsey line from Virginia Water to Addlestone.
A timetable for 3rd August 2022 has been included, with all services from 04:30 until 01:00. The standard off peak services are:
– 1tph Reading to Gatwick Airport (GWR)
– 1tph Reading to Redhill (GWR)
– 2tph Reading to London Waterloo (SWR)
– 2tph Weybridge to London Waterloo (SWR)
– 2tph Ascot to Aldershot (SWR)
– 2tph Guildford to Farnham (SWR)
Both companies operate some additional services during peak hours – most noticeable are SWR’s peak Frimley line services – instead of shuttling between Ascot and Aldershot several services run through from London Waterloo.
Occasional freight services have been included to various destinations, and the daily ECS move by CrossCountry to retain driver knowledge is also present.
To add some complexity, all scheduled test runs for the new class 701 fleet have been included. Typically it would be unlikely for these all to operate on a given day, but this adds some interest to what is otherwise a standard repeating timetable during the middle of the day.
More information about the lines, as well as some operational tips, can be found in the included documentation file.
