Since the Loader update, I still get messages every now and then of a train 'running X late with a loss of power' as expected in a scenario with failures. But when the train enters, it doesn't report the loss of power in the F7 log and does not actually seem to have a loss of power.

In Cowlairs on the other hand, it is still working fine with the current loader, so this seems specific to Wolverhampton.

Are you running from a pre-loader 4.7 save?

It's extremely unlikely that this is a Wolverhampton specific issue.

No, it is not a pre-4.7 save. I started a new game after installing 4.7 and then it started. I have confirmed this by loading old saves of the game, they do not produce a version mismatch warning and their dates post-date the file date of SimSigLoader.exe. The oldest save of the game is dated 10 May; the loader is dated 9 May.

Looking back at saves of the game, it turns out to be even weirder. Three trains in the morning (6K02, 1F34, and 2W14) did run with a loss of power, but after 10am none did.

I have attached a saved game so you can reproduce it. 1J15 has been announced to run with a loss of power, but when it actually enters (around 12:46 sim time) it runs normally.
