What’s new – 10th January 2019

Happy New Year from all of us at OpenTrainTimes!

We’ve just released a slightly delayed set of updates to the site. These were due to go live about a week ago, but due to illness we didn’t have time to test everything to our satisfaction.

In this release:

  • A new map of Mossley Hill to Runcorn, covering the new workstations at Manchester ROC, as well as Ditton signal box. Garston Intermodal Freight Terminal is also drawn
  • Improved functionality from the new control system at York ROC means we can show, and we’ve added, routes and signal aspects for the whole of the York area, covering York station and parts of the surrounding routes
  • The Hull area map now contains route indications

Minor fixes include adding a missing signal at Cogload Junction, L394 signal at Seven Kings, F456 signal at Feltham, W367 signal at Southfields, 1999 signal at Gilberdyke, and new platforms berths at Skipton, Ilkley and Bradford Forster Square.

Unfortunately, at least three maps – the Exeter, Liverpool Street and Airedale maps have become corrupted during deployment and rather than rolling back the whole release, we’ll fix them as soon as we can.

  1. Gap between Hither Green and Grove Park on the Kent main line. Points and signals missing and some duplicate signal numbers, 302 & 304.

  2. I don’t see any schedules available for York station. All I.D.s are yellow, none are white. Please can this be fixed.
    Cheers, Tony.

  3. How come when using the site status link in the 16th December 2018 blog there are no reported problems for January 30th 2019?
    Train positions clearly lagged behind reality from about 17:25, and by 18:20 they were about 4 or 5 berths behind.
    Is the status only displayed as an outage when it stops altogether rather than just going slow?
