Operations Calendar Overview

Timetables can be assigned to dates in the railway's operations calendar, facilitating an accessible, and always up-to-date official resource for the railway and staff.

The calendar can be configured to run from any month in the year, the example shows the railway's operating year running from February to January.

Details can be added to the specific date, such as operating instructions, special traffic notices, etc.

Linking a timetable to the date allows easy reference to that working timetable, operating instructions, staffing requirements, etc.

HOPS is continually being developed and updated. Sometimes the screen shots in these help files might lag behind the most up-to-date views of the screens. Generally, however, the functionality of the page will be the same, albeit with a slightly different format or layout.

Thank you very much indeed to Emma Patrick for writing these support pages.
