Trackattack Timetables

As mentioned on the trackattack page timetables can be created for the simulations. I have three here for downloading, one for Exeter and one for Euston. These timetables can be discussed on the Yahoo group or

Timetable for Kings Cross This timetable is for the Kings Cross simulation and is based on the passenger timetable for 2004. Some modifications have to be made as the real timetable includes trains combining or dividing. The freight timetable is enhanced but includes all trains that ran. The mail train service is as run in 2003 Start times suggested are 0000, 1000, 1500. These have been verified as not having any starting position hangups. Most other times do have a startup problem, or have lost a lot of trains.

Timetable for Euston This timetable is for the Euston simulation and is based on a mixture of timetables. The main lines passenger timetable for 1991 and faithfully followed, giving significantly more ECS moves to the Wembley carriage depot than the original timetable. The DC lines are running to 1985 and West London services are running as per the 2001 timetable. Cross country is run as it's peak with WCML trains as well as a service via Willesden SW sidings to Reading and the European. Freight is entirely fictional and is slightly reduced from the original timetable. No particular startup problems noted with this simulation.

Timetable for Euston The same timetable as above but without push-pull operation on long distance services, and one per hour loco-hauled Northampton trains. No particular startup problems noted with this simulation.

Timetable for Exeter This timetable is for the Exeter simulation and is based on the passenger timetable for 1991. Freight is entirely fictional and runs at a high level to provide more to do.
Start times suggested are 0000, 0500, 1100, 1500 and 1900. These have been verified as not having any starting position hangups. Starting at 0600 places trains in inappropriate platforms and should be avoided. Other times may miss out one or more of the special workings in this timetable.

Timetable for Preston This timetable is for the Preston timetable and uses the passenger timetable for summer Saturday 1964. There are a few freight and mail services which are fictional. Suggested start times are 0100, 0700, 1300 and 1900 although no times have errors on startup. Read the file inside the zip for more guidance or download this pdf file with those notes and more historical background and maps
Coming SoonBirmingham 1998, the new crosscountry timetable causing havoc !

Notes & Installation Instructions

Copyright on Trackattack software lies with Trackattack.
These files are alternative timetables and it is only this work that should be attributed to the author(s).
These files have worked on the authors' PC and the version of Trackattack simulation that they use. No further warranty is offered.
A 'perfect score' is not guaranteed as being possible, certain start times may result in delay minutes being accrued by trains being in the wrong positions. these are noted where known.
Advice of any problems however is welcomed.

To use the files unzip them, they contain a readme.txt file and the two timetable files timetest.tak and timetabl.tak
Make a new directory under the appropriate simulation called USER1000 or similar:
e.g.  C:\TRAKATTK\EUST\USER1000
Place the files timetabl.tak and timetest.tak in this directory.
Run the simulation and select USER1000 instead of the factory timetable in the 'Top Level' menu
You will be prompted to allow the 'factory' files (start conditions) to be created.
You are now ready to start a run in the 'Simulations' menu.
