I accidentally sent a 2M** (Default Timetable) train onto the Atlantic Lines at Shepherds Lane Junction. As the train was scheduled to stop at all stations between Brixton and Beckenham Junction, I expected the driver to phone at signal VS107 complaining of a wrong route, but it didn’t. I know you can send non-stoppers via the route opposite to that which they were timetabled to use. Is the fact that this driver accepted the route a bug, or is it just a limitation of the sim and I should be expecting a grilling from Southeastern for leaving loads of their passengers on the platforms along the Chatham Main Line? :yikes

It's certainly possible to specify that a route is wrong if a train stops at certain places, as opposed to passing those places. So it feels like a sim bug.

Which signal was he wrong routed at? It's not geographically possible to switch a down train to the Atlantic lines at Shepherds Lane Junction...

VS107. I was meant to send them onto the Chatham Main Line; I accidentally sent them continuing on the down Atlantic.
