Hi,

I'm playing the swindon a and b box (loader version) on the default swindon summer 2005 timetable

I'm having trouble with train 7C23 when it gets to the Bradford junction side of the box I get a call from train 7C23 saying it is waiting at buffer stops
and I've tried telling it to reverse and it blocks that section of the line.

I've have tried with the ARS mode off and with ARS mode on same thing happens

Can anyone point me in the right direction on what to do with this train.

Thanks

I've just tested this on Sim version 4.3.7 and Loader version 4.5.8 and can't reproduce it.

Can you confirm what version of the Sim and loader you are using?

You need to press "Check for updates" in the loader application. You are at least a couple of versions behind on the loader and I suspect the sim too.

This was an issue in an older version of SwinDid, now resolved.

You seem to be running an older version of loader too, can I suggest you try "Check for Updates" on the loader start screen - if nothing else this will ensure you have an up to date loader.

As Karl says, what version of SwinDid are you running? Latest is 4.3.7

How do I check if the box is up to date.

You should've been offered updates for anything that isn't up to date when you clicked "check for updates". Provided you didn't untick anything (except the option to install Leeds), everything should be up to date. To check, start the Loader, click 'New Simulation', select Swindon A&B and in the description box it should say "Version 4.3 build 7". If it's a lower version number, you need to run the updater again and check that you're offered an update for Swindon.

6B36 should be signalled from 920 to the white triangle at 906. The train will propel out onto the Up Relief behind 6407 signal.

Once he's out, you can set the route from 6407 to 923 in platform 4 and he'll be off on his merry way.
