    I did a run from H&W to Queen's Park and back to Stonebridge Park on PC last night, and didn't see any AI, static or otherwise, on the mainline the whole time.

    Hi everyone, I have been enjoying the new realistic timetable very much! But one thing I saw is that the services still terminate before midnight, probably due to the old technology this timetable was built with. Would it be possible/are there plans to add the new feature and have services that drive until nearly 1 in the morning like in the real timetable? Or are there some things that block this from being possible? (e.g. the route was built with TSW2 so it's not possible to have past-midnight timetable, or similar reasons)

    Spectacular work Joe, you have exceeded all my expectations with this new timetable. I can't thank you enough for working for DTG.

    And it is exactly the same at Wivelsfield on London Commuter, where the PIS are on the wrong platforms.

    Perhaps you drove at a time there was nothing running. The static stock are Stonebridge Park is a little out of view. Had you gone further, you would've seen some.

    Likely not because this timetable is made on and designed for TSW 2 but is compatible with 3. Sorry! If it's back-to-depot services you're after, there are a few before midnight IIRC.

    Glad you're liking it! :D

    There is a minor bug: the platform PIS is cued to departure times, not arrivals- and that includes the "Train Approaching" warning. Which means that, absurdly, the approach flasher doesn't start until after the train has been sitting there loading and is about to set off again!

    Oh yeah! Forgot about that bit. The AI layer from GWE then I guess?

    Thank you for your answer, I thought it was a tsw3 only feature, but since it's built to be compatible with tsw2 it has time limits. Missed that part :)

    I took my first spin on the '38 stock today via the " Blast From The Past " scenario.
    After arriving at Paddington without incident, I changed cabs to make the return journey, only to find I was somehow coupled to a '72 train and was unable to continue.

    Of course, in the " olden days ", I would have a save point somewhere to give it another go, but now I needed to start over and then..... real life called.

    Same, I've been complaining since day one of TSW2 that the route felt empty with very few trains. Now it's absolutely fantastic. Having to really concentrate in keeping the timetable and observe the signals. Well done to everyone who worked on this timetable upgrade.

    I agree. Fired up bakerloo for the first time in ages last night and had a great few runs.
    I know the TSW2 routes have not had the lighting "upgrade", but something has been tweaked. Perhaps the sky has made all the difference.
    It just looks better. I Will have to take some in game screenshots to compare.

    I just completed my first service in the updated timetable. Spectacular work Joe, and everone else working on it, you really transformed the route with how busy you made it.
    Really, really, well done :)

    Yes is actually one of my favorites. I hope we get a future similar route like the jubilee,circle line,metropolitan line
