Does anyone with a WTT have any info on timings for other trains (freight) between these two points in the 18:20 - 19:20 time period?

I only know of 3 working at Carlisle in that time period;

6M22 Hunterston - Sellafield which is 37s/57s + FNA, which came through Platform 1 about 18:23
6E65 Ravenstruther - Drax FL 66 with HHAs, through Platform 4 about 18:45
1M03 Shieldmuir - Warrington RMT which is 325s, through platform 1 at 19:00

there maybe more but those are the only ones I saw last time I did an overnighter at Carlisle which was about 6 months back.

Thanks for those.
Hmm... The mail train can be recreated with an 86 and Newbuoy's mail cars, I guess. The Drax coal I guess has HAAs standing in for HHAs at this day... But how to recreate the FNA train within the limitations of the allowed stuff...

Ok on closer inspection seems I only need the mail train, as the others would not have been seen anyway from this train. Guess an 86 and mail cars have to stand in for the 325 this day...

On an even closer examination it looks like all of these are southbound services, so all north-bound services in that time period were passenger?

6E65 is southbound, the rest are northbound they wouldn't have gone through platform 1.

Isn't track 1 bidirectional? As the trains started from Shieldmuir and Hunterston, which are both north (northwest) of Carlisle, it wouldn't really make sense if they were northbound...

Actually I think you're right, I had 66111 with a rake of TEAs go southbound through 1, but still the workings I mentioned went north.

Did you notice the headcode and time of the 66 with the TEAs?

All through platforms at Carlisle are bi-directional.

Why would a Hunterston to Sellafield and a Shieldmuir to Warrington be going north? As the headcodes you quoted both indicate these are southbound workings. :-?

EDIT: Ooops it appears my photos were taken 2 hours after the time in question! In which case only the platforms and directions I mentioned are wrong and the rest of the info is correct. :oops:

I have a photo here taken of 57011+57003+37604 going north through the station with 2 FNAs and now I checked the time 21:00 (6C46 Sellafield - Kingmoor Depot)

A quick update on progress so far.
I have received (to date) 14 scenarios and passed these onto the beta testers. Testing is going well with good feedback being sent back to the scenario authors.

I know a number of scenarios are being worked on as I type so it looks like thanks to all your efforts a really nice pack with plenty of interest, variety and realism is going to be the result.

Please do post screen shots of your scenarios if you wish and Beta testers feel free to take the odd shot or two and post them up on the screenshot thread, I am sure the scenario authors will not mind.

I'll see if I can get a few up myself.

Well done all.
