Headcodes for track machines

On other forums, I keep a list of current booked headcodes for track machines up to date, but haven't posted it here, where it too may find use.

Hopefully this will copy OK, if not please feel free to copy it and reformat it as necessary, and/or move it to a section of the website where it can be kept and viewed.

Just noticed that Robel set 1 isn't listed for some reason. This is of course 6U81.

There's already a page on the site for headcodes

http://www.ontrackplant.com/headcodes

Haven't had a chance to cross-check it with your list yet though.

My apologies Vince, wasn't aware there was already a page on this site.

Very interesting. Without copying and pasting the link for the headcodes, where would I find this by just logging into the site? I can’t find a link to it in any of the headings at the top of the web page.

One I can see missing off both lists after a very quick glance is 6Q69 75503

I must admit, I thought it was already in the menu under lists, but upon further examination, it wasn't. I remember mentioned the page in a comment a few months ago, so maybe many people missed it. Apologies.

Brilliant Thankyou Vince. Another great addition to the site.

Saw 75010 today on it's second working. Its first was 6Q58 Westerleigh to Westbury, followed by 6Q59 Westbury to Westerleigh. Unusual for 2 Headcodes to be used by the same machine. Presumably just temporary whilst staff familiarisation takes place?
