Hi all,

Just wanted to say a quick congratulations and thanks for this incredible sim!

In version 1.1 of the sim, however, I seem to have come across a strange situation and was wondering if it was typical for this area (there’s no mention in the manual). I have a train routed from the Up Main to Platform 13 at London Bridge (signals 506→498→P13) and am trying to route a train from Platform 12 onto the Down Main, but it won’t take a route from 491 to either 503 or 501, citing instead that “Point(s) locked normal by another route”. Either of these routes look to me like they should be possible, even with the inbound route set on the adjacent line and through the pointwork, but I know that what ‘looks’ possible on the screen may not be the case on the ground. I have a save attached for reference if needed.

Thanks,

Mark (Gwasanaethau)

P.S. There are also no links from the forum index to the London Bridge ASC subforums at the moment.

If the route is set from 498 into P13 then you cannot set the route from P12 to signal 503 as there is no valid route you can set. (see attached picture for route that is set from P12 to signal 503)

Looks like you should be able to route from P12 to signal 501, have reported (mantis #20700)

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

With 498 to Platform 13 set, the only route from 491 (Platform 12) is to 501, there is no pointwork to get from 491 to 503.

491 to 501 should set, reason it doesn't in the sim is:

761 Points, these should not be locked and can be in any position. There are other controls in relation to 761 points and the two routes mentioned, I have emailed Geoff.
