The Opal machines have live Internet connections via their 3G mobiledata links. It would only take a minute or so to download the stoppingpattern from the Opal backend servers once the right run number is keyed in. Note I do not know if the driver terminals even have this capability,but if I was designing it - id be making as much as possibleself-configuring. Downloading the diagram from the server when a 'new'previously unseen run is entered seems obvious to me.
