Bug found or any option not correctly put. Trains which have divide action, beging divide train on reverse point not waiting than that train to any platform.
Example, starting session default TT 1985, 0B96 from entrance to reverse and after to platform 3. Well, train stopped on reverse point and begins to divide train, when is programmed to make it on platform 3. How can I to avoid this negative action?

Charlytos, I tested a number of 1985 TTs. All work good! What is full name of TT with problem?

BarryM, timetable is default from King Cross V4, its name is: Kings Cross 1985 v5.33.
Problem is train 0B96 with option divide train, stoped on reverse point and begins to divide train and occurs with other trains with action divide train stopped on reverse points. I cancelled Divide train action giving ite Shunt to train to platform 3 with track selected.
Put image train stopped on reverse point and window of list trains with 0B96 Detach action working:



Put detail over this problem correctly. While train 0B96 is stopped on reverse point and I don't use option start movement to next point doesn't start divide action.
On same moment than I use manual run to next point (on this case to its destination Platform 3) begins dividing train on same reverse point. If I don't use manual run to next point, train stands stopped continously. On old King Cross V. 2,xx train began automatically to run not having that problem.

Note. I put on previous paragraph than train 0B96 didn't make automatic start movement. Personal error, if does automatic start movement. If has automatic start movement then doesn't start divide action. Think than problem is when I do manual start movement.

What's the train's current location in the Show Timetable window? I've just tested, and the train reversed correctly.

Just tested myself and worked perfectly - Train stopped at tunnel reversed to platform 3 and then divided as per TT.

Sandy, timetable puts than divide action is in platform 3. So was on old v. 2.xx and is on new v 4 sim.
If player doesn't use manual start train, this starts run automatic and isn't enabled divide action until train arrives to its destination. If player uses manual start action, if begins divide action on same reverse point.

I've reproduced the problem.

The original post may be a bit illegible, not being written in English, so I'll reiterate the matter.

Train 0B96, according to its timetable, enters at King's Cross Goods, then reverses at Copenhagen Tunnel and arrives at King's Cross station where it has a divide action. What Carlos did, was after the train arrived at Copenhagen tunnels, he stepped up the timetable to King's Cross location; although the train could normally move to King's Cross, it chose to invoke the activities instead.

The behavior seems strange, and rather dangerous than wanted. This kind of action at a distance, where a train could divide its loco at Hitchin if it is stopped at a signal and I set next location King's Cross, is really frightful.

I suppose it's a byproduct of another new feature, whose purpose is to allow eg. joining trains which didn't get to their joining location, because they can't. Eg. I allowed a 170 m train into P9 at King's Cross (that's already overlength), then allowed another one pass a signal at danger to its back and the trains joined correctly. This wouldn't have been possible in the old .exe version or even some of the earlier versions of loader. Still, I wonder whether the old behavior (you put a train into a short platform? your problem) wasn't actually better.

Pardon Finger isn't all correct as you put it. I made manual start movement train 0B96, because by my error thought than hadn't automatic start that train.
Then on same moment than I make manual start movement from option list trains, select next point to forze start movement. Run is made, but is necessary Shunt action to start movement.
On that moment than I execute go to next point without Shunt yet, the sim starts divide action. Yesterday night I had to cancel divide action from reverse point and start movement to its platform.
This morning I looked that 0B96 had real automatic start movement. If movement is automatic, then doesn't begin the divide activity.
