Speke GF SE68 - 6X41 22/11/2016 at 12:14 #88457

Hi guys,
Having trouble while unlocking the ground frame for 6X41 at Speke Jct.
I'm having to authorise a pass signal at danger and examine for SE68, wait until the train states "Points set against train" then Reverse the train for a second then the box will release.
Tried calling Speke and Garston thinking it was a slotting issues but both state train isn't due here...which makes sense..
So how come this is happening?

Thanks
Joshua

To release the ground frame, the points between the Down Slow and the sidings (i.e. the ones immediately ahead of SE68) must be keyed normal- left-click the point ends so they turn blue to do this. The frame can then be operated in the usual manner (Show-> Lever Frames-> Speke, move levers as appropriate).

Just been playing this sim today and came across something unusual with this GF and the points needed to release the frame, I followed what was done to get 6X41 into sidings but while the GF points are set and Sig SE68 shunt is set for route into car term, I found that it is possible to release the lock on the points ahead of SE68 and set the points towards Ditton slow lines all while GF is release and sig SE86 shunt is cleared for Car Term.

Definitely shouldn't happen. In real life, lever 70 must be normal (in the frame) before lever 89(ground frame) can be reversed. Likewise 89 reverse locks 70 normal so the points cannot be moved.
