Train delayed at any location? 09/08/2018 at 20:22 #110867

Hi all,

Just a quick question - it seems to me that train delays generally occur at stations on sims (as that's where they stop frequently, of course).

But it is possible in SimSig for a train to fail / become delayed, say while standing at a random signal due to a delay or across a junction as sometimes occurs in the most inconvenient of places in real life?

I know of course we can technically create these events ourselves by pausing trains etc., but wondered if it would happen in sims.

Thanks,
Joe

No, currently delays only happen at scheduled stops. There's a wish list item (Mantis #17, so quite old actually) that mentions the idea, though.
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.

Trains can be delayed at junctions by track circuit failures or signal failures and even on plain line.

He means can they just ring up out of the blue having had to stop in the middle of nowhere for dragging brakes etc.
