X2010 that travelled with the train to its destination
Having shunted trains myself 13 odd years ago to various lists and made up trains and completed X2010 forms, it is easy to make up a train that "someone else " has already generated.
shunters receive this fax requesting wagons
We would then use lists complied by the last shift to collect the empty and in some cases reloaded wagons to form the train, in this case BW4.
shunters made lists to be done and also where wagons were in their yard
Trains that arrived were then shunted out using the details on the X2010.
computer generated X2010 and marked up ready to shunt the consist
The requirement of the X2010 seems to have changed little over time from the research I have done.
memo sent to operational staff
The above forms are from various time frames and taken from my huge collection of actual paperwork that was used in day to day train running operations.
As you can see there is plenty of paperwork in those 4 pages to generate traffic flow. It will be fairly simple to make the first list but will then become harder and harder to create variety. Or will it!!!!!
My question is, I am interested to find out what systems those of you with an operational layout use to generate train lists but also shunting lists (switch lists). I am not interested in car cards like I referred to a few blogs ago, although cards are placed on wagons for the number taker, I think I will just go with a X2010.
Anyway enough of my ramblings, your thoughts please.
