I'm having a little trouble on Horsham....

Train comes to a stop. Gates close, slot clears....but I am then unable to clear the relevant signals!

Help please?

Tested, cannot replicate. They belong to the Crossing Box anyway.

Do you have a save to refer to?

Sorry guys, I am in the business of making people wait!

I only have the 1 TT option for HRH and it used to happen to me on it every time!

It's now magically started to clear by itself.....soon as the slot comes off, whereas before it wouldn't clear. Typical.

I know it's a long time later, but I'm experiencing this. Up trains are having a long wait at Littlehaven but the slot is given eventually, a long time after the gates close. But down trains wait indefinitely. I talked the previous down train past the signal once the gates were closed but the next train is suffering from the same problem.

Hi,

i have the same bug. No matter what i do, the signal remains red.
Gates closed is indicated, waited >15 min.

What is the problem here?
Nothing is there to click or to change.

I've opened your save game and the gates were shown as closed and the slot off was illuminated. Signal 891 has its replacement switch operated which on left clicking on the R button, the signal clears and the train moved off

The screenshots show the replacement button as not operated, and trains queued up behind, meaning that it was likely not the issue, but an attempt to solve it?

Y10g9 has analysed the saved game and reached a conclusion based on that.

Testers and Developers will always be able to glean more relevant information from a save than a screenshot.

It is possible to remove an ERS whilst paused, which could account for the screenshot, this is all conjecture of course, but Y10g9 conclusion is conclusive as he has seen the results for himself.

I've now run this myself as well and on loading I'm greeted with gates closed and slots given at 0110 so the same conclusion applies. Do you have an earlier snapshot prior to activating the ERS and prior to the slot being given, that matches the screenshot you've posted. hopefully it might allow us to recreate the original issue.

edit: I've run the save and I can reproduce the issue with 3Q22 following the incident train. signalling set as would be expected, gates closed but no slot given despite it sitting at 891 for several minutes. I haven't got time to investigate further but there seems to be an issue here. I've worked the ERS and it makes no difference, however I noted that 1C74 had been asked to examine the line as it rang in at 893.

Note added to mantis 12660 which was pretty much the same issue, but on the up, for further investigation.

Example minimalist timetable attached, seems to perform the bug reliably on the third train (1C08)

I suspect it is two down trains following each other (in this case I have set it up with a long stop at Faygate for 2C06).

The LC keeper resets the slot when the 2C06 passes, by which time 1C08 has passed the trigger location / TC.

Hi all,

i've attached all snapshots, starting from 00.00 to 01.10h every 10 min.
For some context: I had 1 TL (9J71) service from Three Bridges, stuck in Crawley due to police investigation (00.40h Snapshot), therefore leaving 1C94 stuck behind.
9J71 had no problem passing the crossing with the orange "stop" indicating.

Also, time was accelerated to x2.

--> I've tried several things, after he got stuck behind the gates to get the train moving again. This is one try ;)
