I've got a couple of queries re the Aberdare Ground Frame.

1. The shunt signal on the Hirwaun side of the GF is labelled SHW3 (using right-click), but lever 3 of the GF says it is SHW1 when you hover the mouse pointer over it. Phone calls from trains held at the shunt signal say they are at signal SHW3. However, the TT editor has SHW1 in the list of seed points and a train seeded at that signal actually appears at SHW3 on the diagram! The Incident Control Panel knows about SHW3 but not SHW1, so is the signal SHW1 or SHW3 in reality?

2. If a route is set from signal A176 to A172 (Up direction between Fernhill and Cwmbach), then it's not possible to unlock the Aberdare GF. However, if you cancel the route and then unlock the GF, you can set the route again even when a route has been set either from or towards Hirwaun and the GF signal cleared. Something wrong here, I think.

1) Naming on SHW3 made consistent.

2) The ground frame was missing from the conditions in the route, which I have fixed.

Both fixed in 1.0.6 (Check for updates)
