Is there any way of routing an early train into this refuge which has blue vertical blocks on it?

No. Per the manual:

Moss Vale Manual said:
Frames G & J on the Up Refuge are booked permanently out of use.

I saw that in the manual, but wondered why i couldn't signal into the refuge rather than the frame controlled sidings. Routed the train 3MB7 (1hr 6m early) into the refuge past the blue vertical lines and it worked OK

The blue lines are simply points with reminder devices applied; UK simulations use a yellow highlight.

As stated above, point reminders for this sim are blue, in line with Phoenix colours. There should be no reason a Main route cannot be set from signal G22 to G38. That said, an interstate superfreighter may not fit (3MB7 will but, at 1459m in length, 3MB4 would not).

The manual has just now been updated to include loop and siding lengths, by the way.

I can confirm from (sim) experience that 3MB4 definitely does not fit! Oops! XD

There has been a bug reported with clearing a Main route from G22 into the Up Refuge at Goulburn. G22 will clear only if G38 is at Stop. Clearing G38 causes G22 to restore to red. Same with G58.

Reported. Mantis 21387
