Schedules as pdf


Recommended Posts

Hoi, I shall suggest something that really would add a new depth in realism. As I observed in Austria, the driver has a tablet on his cab where the schedule is being displayed. Over there there are supposed to be the scheduled speeds, waypoints etc. Back then on Pro Train Perfect, they actually did those schedules as I described (although the DB seems to have a built in EBuLa device to display schedules) so you has to pay attention to the hectometer signs along the route e.g. for calculating the distance to the next waypoint. It was a really nice and realistic way of monitoring your position and I would love to have those schedules as a pdf so I could display them on my Tablet or Laptop monitor.

When the SDK's are released later on, this kind of thing should be possible,

For Railworks / tsc there is a program called TS-MFD, which reads your in game location and speed, and uses it to update a working EBuLa screen that was displayed on a 2nd monitor or an android tablet (i think ipads worked too)  tablets were better due to their touch screen, so the buttons on the EBuLa work.

Ive shown the picture below before... but i have 2 android tablets mounted on holders each side of my laptop (plus a phone holder, the phone lives below the right hand tablet and usually shows the brake pressure gauges, but i'm using it to take the photo)

When i was using train sim classic i was able to use TS-MFD to get the right hand tablet as a working EBuLa that updated it's position as i moved in the game, and the left hand tablet is showing the left MFD screen from the train, with the clock, ole voltage, motor current bars working, and again pressing the virtual buttons around the screen took you to other pages to set things up as you would in a real train.

Often i'd drive using my main PC, so the view out the train windscreen was displayed on a 55 inch TV, which is about 2 meters infront of the laptop location, and i'd put the centre MFD on the laptop screen (the speed and traction meters, with the SIFA and the PZB / LZB indicators etc)

i'd love to be able to 'move' that side bar style timetable from on the main screen to another screen, or ideally to a phone / tablet,

Then gradually add more details to it... it already has the next stops / marker posts in it... if you drag the list of stops / posts upwards with the mouse you will see more.
But having things like the hectometer board numbers for the stops / posts, and maybe having the distance to the next stop in the timetable panel would mean the top right panel with the next signal status etc could be turned off.
