Need help with setting a route from PF5 14/11/2014 at 10:50 #65594

I'm new to simsig but I've used Royston without serious problems. So I changed over to Llangollen. And now I need your help please!

I used: LLangollen DMU Gala 2012 Perfect No TORR

Start 9:00

First Train 5B01 enters from Pentrefelin Yard at 09:05 and stopped at PF5

I tried to set a route from PF5 to GJ11 but that does not work. Selecting (left click) PF5 and the white square in front of the signal appeared and starts blinking --good!
Next left click on GJ11 the white square at PF5 disappeared and a white square in front of GJ11 appeared, showing that this signal is now selected, but no route is set.

So please give me a hint what to do to get the trains out of Pentrefelin Yard!

Greetings from Austria

Royston is a very simple sim and only scratches the surface as to what features SimSig has. There are lots of features you thus won't have come across. This may be one of them.

Before I say anything else, I would highly recommend reading the manual for the sim, if you haven't already. As someone new to SimSig it really should be a must-read. There will be lots of information in there about running that specific sim and some of it will be vital to the sims operation some of which may be unique to Llangollen (and it will also, more than likely, answer your question too).

As to you problem, you have two options depending where the train needs to go (And I haven't run the TT so I don't actually know where the train goes). If it is going via the backroad, use PF5 as the entrance signal and GJ22 as the exit signal.

If its going anywhere else you have to use the Pentrefelin ground frame. This are what the N and F buttons are for next to the location. General info about ground frame can be found in the SimSig wiki and specific details for the GF's in a sim will be referenced in the sims manual.

You need to operate the Pentrefelin yard ground frame. See here for general information on ground frames http://www.simsig.co.uk/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=usertrack:ssrun:lever_frames

Specifically. First click on the green circle above the 'F' near PF5, next click on Show > Lever Frames and click on Pentrefelin Yard GF. Operate levers 1-5 in sequence (hover over each lever to see purpose). This will set the route from PF5 to GJ11. When the route is clear, reverse the levers (5-1)and then right click on flashing white circle.

Thank's a lot for your reply. I have read some sections of the wiki. My problem was that I had no clue for what term I should search. GF - Ground Frame is new for me. But I think I understand your "hint's". I will follow your guidance tomorrow. And thank's for the link to the Lever Frame / GF section of the wiki!
