I read in the manual that it's possible to divert between Hanslope & Hillmorton junctions without the driver questioning the route but I tried diverting 4M42 via Weedon as it was running late but the driver phoned up complaining of wrong route. I told it to "Bypass Hanslope Junction and stick to timetable", it then phoned up again so I told it to bypass Northampton and it then accepted the route and crossed over to the fast line for Weedon. Is this incorrect or have I done something wrong?

Hi
Just a thought,does 4m42 have a passing time or a stopping time at Northampton?
Maybe if its a stopping time at Norhampton thats the reason why the driver questioned the route

"MD105 - HANSLOPE JUNCTION TO RUGBY (VIA NORTHAMPTON)
Hanslope North Junction To RUGBY
Trains diverted via Weedon. Trains booked to run via Northampton may be diverted via Weedon. Drivers need not
observe the requirements of Rule Book, Module S2, Section 5, unless their train is booked to call at Northampton and/or
Long Buckby.
Dated"

Non-stop between Hanslope and Hillmorton, I had an issue with 4L95 also calling wrong route in the opposite direction.

Good day all! I know that this is an old thread but the topic is still valid. Most trains booked up non-stop via N'ton will call wrong route if routed via Weedon. I'm at 03:22 sim time and the last culprit is 4O84 (running early), running booked route to Hillmorton Jcn and thence signalled via the Up Main (to avoid a TC failure at Daventry S. and an early running class 6) calls wrong route at KR3356. Cheers!

Reason: Correction to quoted sim time.

4M43 booked down via N'ton just called wrong route at Hanslope Jcn., so the hiccup exists in both directions. Haven't sent anything Up or Down via N'ton when booked via Weedon yet but will advise.

Could this problem be arising because all trains booked via N'ton seem to be timed at Daventry North Junction and Daventry South Junction? These points seem to be inserted automatically if removed with an F2 edit. Just a thought.

Reason: Added thoughts on Daventry Jcn.s

Looks like it didn't get put on the bug tracker- #16915 raised.

I have just downloaded Rugby and found this out. In reality, all drivers are to take either route without questioning, except if required that way, for example a Daventry bound train would query fast line route at Hanslope, but other than that they are to take what is given if just heading through. A shame it hasnt been replicated that way but hopefully it will get rectified.

16915 was resolved 3 years ago! Just tried it on the sim and drivers take the route without question.
