I’m playing the Derby 2015 Weekday timetable (approximate time 23.42) and have just received a message which tells me that 3Q88 has the wrong route set.

According to the train’s timetable it is to enter the Goods line at St. Marys North Jn, which I considered to be from signal 533 on the Up Main to signal 515 on the Up Goods line. I have routed several earlier trains this way already without a problem if my memory serves me correctly. Anyway, as it then has to travel to Derby R.T.C. via the Derby UGL, I see no alternative. Am I missing something? Apologies if I have.

Update, time approximately 23.52 or thereabouts:

After cancelling the above route, I decided to try an alternative one which is contrary to that in the timetable but nevertheless was successful. I routed it into Derby Station Platform 3 and from there into R.T.C via P.Way SDG. Not the way the way it should have gone though, is it?

Attached is a screenshot and saved game.

Train TT is missing a bit of information. Under the Train Characteristics tab of the TT, the "Can use freight lines" box needs to be checked.

OK. Next time I run this timetable I'll do that.
Thanks for that information Postal.
