Discussion about the timetable


Recommended Posts

Is there a way we can find out when the next train departs in game? I haven't had much luck driving a complete route from Katowice to Warszawa for example. I always end up taking over from the AI when the service has started a while ago.

I would love to drive a full service from the beginning stop to the end.

Would it be complicated to have a special timetable menu for every server which would indicate when the next train departs? This way a player could wait and then take a specific train 10 minutes before departure. I have a feeling this would be too complicated honestly.

I just want to drive a complete route and not take over from the AI halfway through every time.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thank you so much for your replies! I appreciate your help very much.

So I just need to convert those arrival times to my local time zone, right?

For example, if a train starts at Katowice at 0700 (European time), when I convert it - this would be 0100 for me (North America Eastern time).

I am just confused about the time zone difference.

Here is a file I made some times ago, with the Departure Schedule of all Trains.

Depends on the time zone of the server! Different servers are running in different time zones. The English servers hosted in America probably run in an American time zone, no?

In the main menu my current local time is displayed. However, train departure times seem to be different and I get lost trying to convert the time. English server is UTC+1 for me, so converting that to the Eastern time and finding out the departure times for my zone is confusing and tiring.

i'd ignore the time zone thing when searching for when to take over a train to drive it for as long as possible, 
Pretty much all trains run every hour or half hour,  with a few after midnight running every 2 hours, 

So say you want to drive a 141xx service from Warszawa Wschodnia to Katowice, a distance of about 250 km and takes upto 4 hours to drive, 

Those trains are timed to arrive in Warszawa Wschodnia station at 26 minutes past the hour....

So one will be at the station at:

10:26
11:26
12:26
13:26
14:26 and so on
so thats around the time when you want to be looking for them to appear on the train selection screen on the server you chose to drive on. 

Now if you are like me and love the EU07 / EP08, and hate the traxx, every 3rd service on the 141xx / 411xx services is a traxx, so i have a choice of 2 hourly trains i'll drive, then one i wont,

Thank you very much. I'll keep that in mind when picking my next train.

Its been a while however you may also use https://simrail.me map.

When you click any station / blue point you'll find timetable for that station/point. There is also game server time shown, so no timezones convertions 🙂

i like using the french communities version : https://edr.simrail.app/

This has the server time displayed that includes seconds, which is extremely handy for driving with the HUD off, so you know if you have 5 or 55 seconds left until the departure time, so don't have to keep watching the clock to see it advance that whole minute.
