Reading 2015 by Carwyn Thomas

Reading 2015

This is a simulation based on the Reading Station area correct as at April 2015.

The timetable I have included is the Working Timetable for June 1st 2015 and includes all services that were due to operate on this day, I have also included ‘Runs as Required’ Freight services just to add extra operational interest. On this given day the relief lines and Westbury lines were closed from around 22:00 onwards which involves additional use of Kennet Bridge Junction and Tilehurst East Junction.

One alteration I have made is that I have already increased the Down Relief Speed to allow stopping trains to arrive Tilehurst on time otherwise a late arrival will be recorded, just as they currently are in real life. The real increase of speed on this section will be carried out later this year I believe.

For additional help all trains that have a timing point at both Tilehurst Station and Reading West Junction use the Tilehurst East Crossover.

There are a couple of occasions when trains in Platforms 14/15 will need to be manually moved using the ‘Step forward one element’ feature to ensure that they are not fouling the Departure signal, this is something I am looking at fixing for a future update of this simulation.
