    Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening, Reader

    I don't know why but the only freight wagons that I ever see on SoS is the 5 plank open wagon and the 12T brake van.. I know that I have the other wagons as I have seen them during scenarios however, I have never seen them on the actual route in Timetable mode which has been annoying me since I bought the route on release day. The same goes to the MK1 full brake coach as I have only seen them during scenarios however, I am alright with them being a scenario exclusive.

    My question is: why? why do I only seen the 5 planks in Timetable mode?

    i believe there’s a bit of an issue with Spirit of steam and loading in different rolling stock, as coach livery variations also don’t appear

    Because whoever did the timetable only put those wagons in the consists, and when they copied runs throughout the timetable they didn't change the consists so ended up with "more of the same"

    thanks.. However, there is that screenshot of an 8F just coming off the Runcorn Viaduct with a mixed train on the loading screen however that could have been from a custom scenario..

    To reduce the strain on memory, gen 8 consoles only have the 5 planks in freight trains which are mixed on gen 9 and PC.

    Because those put less strain on your system than the 24h timetable under normal circumstances.
