    Hi

    P Guy provides comprehensive instructions in the Wiki for his rules and driver commands involving Enhanced ITs etc.

    Pierre also has some small demo routes on the DLS that show how everything goes together. Search for author "pguy" to find them.

    This probably isn't the nice simple no effort system that people seem to be wanting but it is a very effective path setting and timetabling system once you get to grips with it.
    I'm retired and I do appreciate that not everyone has the same time to spare as myself in order to learn this but if you can put the time and effort in then it can be very rewarding.

    Regards

    Brian

    So the timetable manager Tony referenced is actually part of a wider package involving interlocking towers.

    Sorry, but not really anything like the built in easy to use/simple UI solution which is what is being postulated here.

    I can only guess about how a real railroad operates and I am sure most in the Trainz world are in the same status. We can guess BUT...

    Some people with railroad operational knowledge need to start an outline on separate passenger and freight operations. This establishes objectives and makes it easier to either select existing rules, modify rules, or create new rules. You must take into consideration the realities of operating massive chunks of mobile iron on massive amounts of iron rails. Place that into a REAL weather environment to consider equipment failures, etc... You might want to even toss in work stoppages and their impact.

    The other reality is the unpredictable customer who REALYY drives freight, and to a degree passenger services.

    We seem to have the tools to start trains and stop trains but no comprehensive view of a clock. There is more focus on subsets of time - delay for seconds, minutes or hours. There seems to be little access to clock time and the need to use time marks for actions.

    Educate me please. Would a "proper" "timetable manager" work at the (train) car level and also manage/track each train car? ie; It's not only a time table manager but also a car tracker?

    I looked at the Destination Database video from the link provided above and it seems to track only. No scheduling. Are not both needed? (Trainz Pro Routes is giving me "account suspended") Do they still exist? I think that is the source of Destination Database?

    1611mac, TPR has been down for over a month. There are a couple of threads discussing this that were merged together. Look HERE.

    Thanks... I had found some of the older posts but hadn't seen the latest (and it seemed that the site always "came back" again). None of this made sense to me as I run a 1500 page commercial website (and several small ones) and it just isn't that hard keeping a website up and running. I was amazed at the money sent him by some great people so the content/assets must have been very good.

    Again, I appreciate the info.

    I have uploaded a proposed idea to the Suggestion Boxcar forum that is awaiting approval. Please comment on that and let's see where it flies.

    As I noted in that proposal and elsewhere in the forums on a lot of things, I believe in KISS. There is no need to make this kind of thing more complex than it should be. How it will be implemented is another story. I'm not a programmer so everything sounds easy when thought up!
