Cannot get slot for Leamington 20/02/2017 at 16:55 #93235

On Coventry I cannot get a slot for Leamington if Leamington is requesting a slot from me, even though I haven't granted it. Clicking the slot request gets Slot Cannot be Requested.

Maybe related, if I have a train heading from Kenilworth towards Milverton Junction when Leamington has a train approaching Milverton Jn., a slot is not requested from me. Once the line's clear it's still possibly to right-click and grant the slot, it's just that nobody asked for it.

I'm having this issue, couple of times I've been about to ask permission for a passenger service when a slot request comes in for a train from Leamington that's booked to stop at Kennilworth for 20 mins!

Yes, this continues to be an issue (1987 - 2003). If you have a late-running passenger train for Leamington in Kenilworth loop, while a train for Coventry passes, there is no way to get precedence over any old freight from Leamington.

Moreover, it follows that it is dangerous to stop a train from Coventry at Kenilworth Loop at signal 5, to allow a train from Coventry to pass. If another train from Leamington enters (or is requested) there is no way to refuse it, and you end up woth to trains for Coventry at sigs 2 and 5, and a train for Leamington at sig 7.

Does anyone know what the situation is in real life?

I've just hit this problem too - Is there any chance this could be fixed soon please? I can;t imagine it's realsitic to not be able to refuse a slot. I guess in reality you'd phone Leamington and get them to withdraw the slot request perhaps?

I don't have a problem with it. Click the little green round before signal LN54 will grant a slot

Indeed. The main issue seems to be that there should be some way to tell Leamington "No, I want priority instead", but there isn't. The second Leamington requsts a slot, you have no option but to grant it.

I recall stumbling across this same issue with the Leamington fringe during my so far first and only play through of the interesting COVID-19 timetable by Chrisrail at around 13:40 when 6M50 was as I understood it due to wait at Milverton Junction between 13:45 and 13:51 for 2G80 from Nuneaton to Leamington Spa to traverse the junction first...

'Stopgap' solution I used was to grant the slot for 6M50, immediately cancel it before the route is set, then quickly request the slot for 2G80 which was granted.

Interesting - Never thought of accepting then quickly cancelling. Thanks!
