It was a nice surprise looking at the forum this evening and seeing a new sim. I used to visit Leeds quite often and always wondered what the area looked like, signalling-wide.

I'm enjoying it so far, and am looking forward to getting my teeth into it. But now I've hit a problem with 5A02, trying to shunt between platforms. It's booked to reverse behind 3613 but that was occupied, so I sent it to reverse behind 3615. I didn't edit the timetable as I thought there was good chance it would work anyway. Wrong.

It stopped behind 3615 so I set a route into the station. The train didn't move and after a couple of minutes called in that it was waiting at 3613 (not 3615). I talked the driver past the signal but noticed later that it had set off in the up direction until it encountered a train coming the other way, and stopped.

I suppose I should tell the RAIB, but thought I'd share it here first.

This is still an issue, had the same problem myself. Is there/has there been an update?

What version of the sim and loader are you using (can be found by going to "help" --> "about" in sim)

It's not my fault! I was left unsupervised.

Signal 3615 is not a reversible location as far as timetables are concerned.

You can reverse a train at 3615 but it must be done manually with no timetable allocated to it.
