1) I think the blank TD issue has already been fixed from a previous mantis report
2) I'd need to see the exact sequence of events, but I suspect there's a condition where you can get lucky and not manage to crash the trains into each other on the single line.

Not sure if you saw my other post in the Stormy Up Loop thread? "I'll release an update along side the updated ground hog timetables (After the seed group feature hits the loader)"

Thanks Karl,

I didn’t see any report on the whitespace message but I had noticed the Pyle “Landore” post after my original message!

Sadly I didn’t do a save on the Burrows but IIRC, I got a slot into sidings, routed to loop, then accepted an exit train, routed my inbound to BS, with outbound appearing towards 451 before the inbound got onto the single. If 451 isn’t a shunt it could well get a Mexican!

Another odd thing... as 2G50 stepped out past 3464 (Wildmill e/b starter distant), a note I had left at 3461 (Bridgend P3 starter) vanished from the berth. The branch was signalled onto P2 at the time.

Thanks
Jamie

That's a really good spot, the issue was the berth clearing out when platform 1A became empty.

Always a possibility I went completely mad, but when 2Q08 from CDF had changed ends at Bridgend P1 and was signalled to CR1, the berth changed to 2W08 just before stepping out to the VoG line!

Not found a bug, but I've got a TT request if possible?

Anything when fregiht diverts via Tondu were on would be brilliant! Or possibly a scenario where you could send freight/trains via Tondu on the OVE rather than straight through (in case of points failures) without having to heavily ammend TTs?

I've tried altering a TT myself to do this, but it found no paths Tondu-Garw Loop! Even when doing Tondu > Garw Branch > Garw Loop, or Tondu > Garw Loop.

Still unable to route to Garw from Tondu. Also a through train from the OVE to Maesteg reverses at Tondu to the limit of shunt

Unable to route? or unable to timetable?

Also trains don't always seem to want to pick up the token at Margam Abbey Works East for the OVE line to Tondu.

Automatic reversals (non timetabled) also occur at Tondu on the OVE line if a stop is programmed for a train to run to run between the OVE and Maesteg in both directions but don't if its a passing time.

When are trains not wanting to pick up the token?

After arrival at Sig 3482 or at Sig 3348 the timetables have the correct route code of OVE

One more: The layout shows Llandeilo Junction but the interlocking view calls it "Llandilo"?
Thanks

And another: I keep asking the Landore shunter to call back in 2 minutes as I can't slot 5L32 (for the washer) out of the emergency road, but they keep calling back at alternating 20 second and 50 second intervals. A similar thing happened previously with the Margam East PIC.

Thanks
Jamie

That's a core code issue I believe, though I can't find the ticket number at the moment.

Thanks Karl,

I've just had (very late) 2Q08 and (early) 6O71 dispatched from Onllwyn onto the same single line. Naughty PIC!
