So this has happened numerous times now on MP sessions (BNS chained with Saltley)

You send trains as normal to four oaks but they never come back, particularly when delayed. It is only four oaks trains that do this, litchfield trains reappear as normal.


Anyone got any ideas please as it spoils the MP sessions really.

It would be useful to know which timetable you are using. The default/supplied one has rules, I believe, which prevent returning trains coming back too early. Can you attach a save?

Many thanks,

Sorry, I fell asleep almost instantly after ending the host.

Here are my saves.

*Note* 2N13 has also crossed over into Saltley but if you check the f2 you can see he's also displayed as crossing over sims and occupies the TCs at University, even though he has continued on towards longbridge. Si I think that's also more to do with New Street sim.

Also when loading, I got the usual several boundary warnings.

Can see no problem with trains returning from Four Oaks. They are listed in the Rules and only start around 7am.

We're good for about an hour into the sim, then start disappearin. The only ones that then enter are the 2N** services.

I'll attach the 1000 save also.

If I remember correctly either 2U14 or 2U18 was the only train to head towards Four Oaks that had a delay.

I've had that happening on Cardiff once - it seems that if you save at just the wrong moment, the train in the originating sim gets stuck and doesn't disappear, so you have to delete it manually. The issue seems to happen somewhat randomly, though, as I couldn't reproduce it again when I tried saving while a train was crossing between chained sims.

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.
