Spending hours while testing TimeTable for MAV 120a I decided to share screenshots of interesting situations.
I want to say "THANKS ALOT!" to Csaba Karoly, the author of this excellent playing polygon for MSTS/ORTS.
To Rob Roeterdink for TT concept implementation & priceless advices, and authors of russian rolling stock - as well.
I dedicate this topic to Peter Gulyas, one of Monogame version authors.
*I use russian rolling stock to test timetable design and train models for compatibility with ORTS at the same time.
***
Test started at 0:00
Goal: verify of Szolnok station working.
This is very busy railroad hub at intersection of 100 and 120 routes. It has passenger and freight parks.
82, 86, 130 and 145 local lines are begin here too (last two has no electrification) and some industrial branches.
Many International, Regional and local trains has their stop here; goods trains passes thru it as well.
Distance to Budapest is about 100km. The name of town is related to salt merchants, lived here at medieval.

3:11
International night express №346 Dachia (Buchureshti-Wien) arrives to Szolnok.

train of 14 sleeping wagons is lead by 4000-hp AC/DC ТЭП70
3:14
View of Szolnok passenger park: it has 11 platform tracks, two tranzit (main V and VI) and a track for locos runaround (2-nd).
5719 local train S820 (at the left) is ready to depart via 82 route towards Hatvan (track 15) first time this morning.
Dachia has arrived (track 8) and boarding passengers, during 4-minute stop: it'll change its head at Budapest then.
Attached Image: Szolnok_01.jpg
5719 is 4-wag EMU ЭР10 having 6 passenger doors at each wagon, because wagons were 1,5x longer, than regular.
3:15
Commuter train 3329 started its work at 120a route (60-th line), moving from pool to boarding platform.

This is post-Soviet ЭТ2 EMU
3:17
Trains working at 100a route (50-th line): 2629(at the left) is heading to boarding platform.
Attached Image: 2629_01.jpg
7022 is late 80-th (flat-faced) ЭР2Р with Regenerative ED-brakes; ЭР2К-987 is earlyer (60-th) round-faced DC EMU after Capital repare
3:18
Departure of Dachia. It will arrive to Budapest-Keleti (East Terminus) about 1,3 hours later.

ТЭП70 was assumed as best passenger diesel-electric locomotive of late 70-th. 0296-th is "Giving Bear" as his diesel accelerates from 8 to 16 cylinders.
3:19
2629 /S50/ at track 3; it's the second train to Budapest this morning. The 2-nd track serves for splitting 1-st track too.
Attached Image: 2619_05.jpg
the 1-st platform can handle at the same time, two short trains, heading to opposite directions though
3:23
Panoram of Szolnok station: Commuter trains to Budapest are waiting for their passengers; at very left You can see 4 pool sidings.
3329 /G60/ (left) - track 13; 2629 /S50/ (right) - track 3. New day's dawning.
Attached Image: Szolnok_02.jpg
Classical RVR (Riga Vagon Plant) EMU trains can be formed of 4 to 12 wagons; post-Soviet models had modified electric cirquits, so number of wagons can be uneven.
3:25
2629 departs towards Budapest-Nyugati (West Terminus) via 100a route. "S50" means,that it has all stops along 50 line.

Isn't she beautyful?

Due to electric failure the test was aborted at ~3:30
to be continued...

The route and rolling stock is available online?

Well,
Route-here. Last version was published about 9 years ago, but trackwork is excellent.
Full effect of presence, interesting terrain (track profile and change from hilly woods to flat steppe)
Spoiler

BUT! It's nessesary to add ORTS chunks for signalling, to let your trains move somewhere off and towards main line.
I added automatic sound change when train passes switches, so 120.trk-file was included too.
Here you are...Attached File  OpenRails.zip (13.47K)
Number of downloads: 6 You'll have to add OpenRails folder to route's root directory as always.
Rolling stock... most-here, but there are other - from dead sites... Maybe, here (no all, as I collected them since 2003).
Native Hungarian trains-here.

The Problem is timetable itself:
it's under construction from 2018, but not finished: I have to complete Budapest-Keleti Terminus collateral traffic definition, then deal with pool actions everywhere, then add freight trains! The tweak of all trains interaction and path correction for prototypical platform addressing are needed too... But I missed some mistakes at April, so I have to find and correct them :(
I was excited in ORTS localization for last 5 month, so I can't remember, what I have changed before it began to crash.
That's why I continue my way of testings and corrections.

This deserves separate topic, but it's a little bit early, maybe...

I'm having that same work on my route. But my route is still being built and it will span the entire country. Right now it has a totla of 1100km out of 3700km. Timetables are populating just 360km of track with local, regional and intercity services. A total of 200 trains untill now! Today I've bein signalling another 215km of track and by the end of the week I hope to have the timetable for that route working properly. I have a topic for it in the Open Rails / active route projects. Its "Portugal 79"

Thank to all for interest on this topic!
Being encouraged with Aldarion's support (thank to him), I finally started the practical topic (this one is supposed to be illustrative), dedicated to this my project.

So, I offer to discuss screenshots and details of everything, that you can see on that pictures here, but timetable's details-there.
