Is it supposed to be the case that you can't shunt in the Hereford area? I was trying to shunt a train to H2 and back but alas no good?
Shouldn't have any problems after pressing check for updates in your loader :)
Using the latest sim version 1.0 build 6 after checking for updates this morning and starting a new sim I am unable to call a route from H34 GPL Sig on the Down Main. It doesn't even flash to try and initiate calling a route. I was hoping to set a route from H34 to H10 on the Up Main.
Reported Mantis #0022160.

That isn't a signaled move in the era simulated. You need to use Brecon Curve GF, and talk the driver by.
In this era then H34 is effectively a LOS only, but previously it was possible to set routes from H34?

I've not seen any posts regarding this yet, but occasionally I don't get the Up/Down Train Approaching indication. It's previously happened on the Up at Bromfield, the Down at Tram Inn, and now I've caught it on the Up at Tram Inn. I've attached a save.


Regards,

Phil.

Did the annunciatior definitely not go off, as opposed to just silencing when 2B01 hit the berth track?

There was once a little siding which was what H34 was for, in effect it's an LOS in the simulation era, though possible to talk passed it for the ground frame.

Thanks for explaining the history surrounding H34 Sig Karl. Re the train approaching indications, I wasn't aware they cancelled when the berth tracks became occupied but now you mention it I'll try to recreate it and see what happens. It may be that I'd just taken my eye off the ball then.

A strange thing happened to me last night: I had a train enter at Ledbury and the Ledbury signaller requested the slot. I accepted, but immediately there was a message saying the train had had an ACOA at a Ledbury signal. The train then proceeded to Shelwick Jn as normal after phoning Control.

No other trains about and the block for the Ledbury line was normal before it happened; but this was the second of two successive trains through the block in the same direction. Unfortunately I didn't think to take notes when it happened.

Have just experienced this in V1.1 of the Sim

Reported on Mantis 26404

I can't work out if I have a bug or I'm missing something but I can't signal any trains to stop short in the down direction on either the Down Relief (H60 to the arrow short of H51) or Platform 2 (H58 to the arrow short of H57) so that the overlap doesn't lock the south end of the station. When I try and signal either of these, I get the message "Route not available". Please note that I can signal a train from H58 to the arrow on Platform 1 without any issues.

I'm running version 1.1 and only seems to affect these two locations.

You should only use the shunt exit arrows for shunt moves and call-ons. Normal arrivals should be signalled on main aspects. Off the top of my head, there are few if any moves in the supplied timetable that would require the shunt arrows.

The routes that give a 'not available' message likely require the platform to be occupied before the route can be set. Whether the different behaviour is correct for different lines is one for the developer.
