TfL bus TransXChange data has duplicate files


#1

In the latest TXC data I found there are some duplicate files in different zip files.

The following files are in both parts two and three zips:

  • tfl_45-1-_-y05-50322.xml
  • tfl_45-129-_-y05-47578.xml
  • tfl_45-108-_-y05-49214.xml
  • tfl_45-12-_-y05-48096.xml
    And potentially more.

Is this expected? This duplication is causing us problems.

It’s not meat to happen, I’m sure but it has happened occasionally before. Not a problem with my low tech stuff as they all get extracted to the same place and the human in front of the screen just says skip (or replace - don’t think it matters which). I can see it might be an issue if multiple duplicates with different names are being created automatically.

Or even MEANT to happen…

This issue was cleared up. If you download the latest version of the files it should be fine now.

Thanks, I can confirm the updated data imported into our systems as expected yesterday with this issue being fixed.
