Newbie Question: What do the abbreviations in the ingame timetable mean ?


Recommended Posts

ph = passenger stop
pt =  technical stop ( mostly for overtaking)

DZA: do you mean Like Zabkowice DZA?
this is a sub station of the main Zabkowice station. I think in real life there is a second dispatcher. But in Simrail both stations are controlled by just one dispatcher 
just like in sosnowiec glowny

Correct. In real life, Dabrowa Gornicza Zabkowice is controlled by two signalboxes: DZA, only for the switches towards Łazy, and DZB, for everything else.

By the way, in SimRail, if you enter DZB and look at the frame, on your right you can see a green part of the panel which IRL doesn't exist since it's located in DZA. I suppose it's a temporary solution, just like every other green tile in the simulator (did you notice those green tiles on tracks 4 and 6 in Bedzin? They too are different from the reality and are probably just placeholders in the sim).

I'll add that, whilst you should never skip a ph stop unless specifically instructed to do so, you're free to skip any pt stop if the signals are clear.

The one thing puzzling me after the update is what appears to be the little telephone icon next to some (but not all) of the ph station stops. I'm guessing this has something to do with keeping the departure signal at red until ready, but during the little bit of driving I've done so far, whether AI or player despatched the signal has always been cleared without asking.

Do you mean the one followed by, e.g., R2 or R4 or other numbers? That's the radio channel, that you have to set on your radio set.

When you go to a route where a different channel is used, you'll also find a black, round sign with the radio channel written in yellow.
