Hi all,

Here’s another potential bug that I’m not sure has been mentioned. Down trains arrive and depart from Collington station before passing CCW17 (Down Distant for Bexhill) despite CCW17 being placed in advance of the station on the sim layout.

Tschüß!

Just going to be pedantic, the station is in advance of the signal, the signal is in rear of the station.

Mark,

This is how it is designed. The message about passing the signal is given when the first track circuit shows occupied, in most cases this is a virtual track circuit to recreate the signalman actually having visual sight of the train, at which point he could then replace the distant signal to caution.

Ah! Thanks – knew I’d get it the wrong way around!

Ah! That makes sense. At the point that the signaller can see the train (the point where the message appears) it has actually travelled a fair distance from the point at which it passed the distant signal…

Thank you both for the clarifications!

Mark.
