Hi,

I had a train from Victoria P3 to Salford Crescent just about to leave when fringe signal MP551 failed on aspect.

I signalled the train past 585 but the train the got stuck at MP551 for 12 minutes at which point the technician changed the bulb!

Short of extreme measures I couldn't ind any way to get the service moving.

This was in single-player mode.

Thanks
Jamie

Mantis #19468 raised- as it's an external signal, it shouldn't fail.

It might have been possible to work around it by authorising the train to pass the signal in F2.

All those other signal boxes are so lucky. Why can’t we get S&T to install those magic immortal light bulbs in our boxes’ signals too?

Because they aren't for your box, they're for the box next door
