How hard would it be to create a csv file so you could run from Birmingham New Street to Redditch instead of Redditch to Birmingham New Street ? If someone did this, maybe there could be the possibility of a Birmingham New Street - Barnt Green (Not the Redditch line one) so we could run trains other than 323s.
Thanks.

AFAIK, it would be very difficult. Basically, the whole route has to be re-coded, it can't simply be reversed, it would have to be done as a whole new route.

Thats a shame I always thought it may be possible to reverse a route, would be good if it was possible though.

It is not a simple process. You need to recode the route from scratch to go the other way, PLUS alter many objects so they can be viewed from the other direction. So you'd be ages at it.

As for using different trains, alter the parameter of Train.Folder.

It would be nice if we could reverse route, but new recodes seem to be the only option. :cry: Recodes take time, especially if they are big routes! ;)

It would be possible to write a program to reverse the route partially. HOWEVER there would still need to be much work by the route authour and it could not be done easily. It would be however impossible for this method to be employed on tube routes though.
