Are the three white auto working modes authentic to the panel?
Yes, they are. There even used to be a fourth one when Elmers End still had an additional bay platform for the service to Addiscombe/Selsdon.

Two million people attempt to use Birmingham's magnificent rail network every year, with just over a million of them managing to get further than Smethwick.

Great sim, really enjoying it so far!

Is there any chance of adding some number hotkeys to allow quick navigation?

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

A request has already been logged on Mantis (#20502) to add these.

Never fall asleep while running London Bridge as this is the result, I was playing it last night and dozed off so when I woke up I paused the game and put my laptop into sleep mode and as you can see by the screenshots this is the trouble I now have to deal with

Would love to see Dartford ASC to follow especially set in the 90's. A real bottleneck around Dartford itself with the maintenance depot at Slade Green & plenty (then) of freight with Hoo Jcn yard/Northfleet & Swanscombe cement works/Grain branch and then ending at Strood. Would be a great addition to London Bridge.

As a resident of Slade Green (please don't feel sorry for me lol) I would love my local area mapped and as you say a natural progression. There is a suggestion in the manual that something may be in the pipeline *fingers crossed

Dartford would be interesting and it is on my list of areas I would like to see in sim. London Bridge ASC is great fun though and is enough to keep me going for now!

I notice Geoff has hidden this particular light completely under a bushel... not a breath on the news page. Come on Geoff, this is magnificent!

Why does Signal VS441Y have a green stem?

"Panel 8
From Denmark Hill to Peckham Rye there is a slot control. Set a route from virtual signal VS441 to your signal L636 to grant the main route, but this will lock up the trailing point coming in from the Up Portsmouth line. You can also set the slot for the warner route by using the yellow triangle instead which will not lock the point. Either route can be left in auto. Note that virtual signal shows the state of the slot (red for on; white for off), *not* the aspect of the signal VS441. The slot will show off while the train is still in the route. Giving either the main or the reduced route slot does not affect Victoria’s ability to route trains any way over Crofton Road Junction."

Not sure if it's already on your todo list Geoff, but Sundridge Park is misspelt as Sunbridge on the diagram and in the locations list.

#20517 on the big board, already marked as resolved for next sim update.

There are other issues to be resolved before the update is released; but shouldn’t be too long.

Thanks for reporting.

Which stations have TRTS? Just London Bridge Low Level, Charing Cross, and Cannon Street; or are there more?

I just noticed signal 122 turn yellow with track circuit TLEJV still occupied, despite the appearance of an overlap on the diagram. Is that to be expected? (Screenshot attached after I recreated it with the incident control panel).

This is a brilliant Sim - massive thank you to all involved.

First attempt - ARS off, how hard can it be...? (Even on half speed, impossible)

Second attempt, I'll just try panels 1-3. That'll be ok. (Put onto half speed by 6.30am)

A VERY challenging sim. But highly enjoyable.

Yes, even our more experienced testers (some real life signallers) struggled.

I've noticed one interlocking that seems a little odd to me - not sure if it's a mistake or if it is actually that way IRL - it appears that it's not possible to route a train from the Up Slow to the Up Lewisham Loop (286 -> 264) at Parks Bridge Jn while a route is set along the Down Fast (271 -> 289) and vice versa.

Fixed in next update/release

It's not my fault! I was left unsupervised.

Another interlocking that appears strange is in the Lewisham area. It not possible to set a route from 258 to 252 when there is a route set from 253 to 445 (and vv)

Just a quick update: I planned to release an update to LB and New Street today. However, my build machine has no internet access until tomorrow, grr. Yesterday was a holiday here too.

Sorry, what with two tech visits and much time dealing with the internet issues, I was not able to complete this today.
