2L05 - Is this really the wrong route? 06/05/2019 at 21:48 #118132

I'm playing the Westbury Project X timetable, Loader version 4.11.
The time is 06:43. 2L05 has reached Newbury, stopped at signal R824 and the drive has telephoned to say that the wrong route has been set.
I have attached a screnshot showing the timetable and the 'wrong route' message.

Could somebody please tell me how I am supposed to Know that this train is to diverge from the main line, presumably to either platform 1 or platform 2?


Let me know if a saved game is required

Times in the timetable separated by a colon are calls. Times separated by slashes are passes. Times separated by other letters are other activities. See: https://www.simsig.co.uk/Wiki/Show?page=usertrack:ttuse:timing_codes

That explains it nicely. I have read the Wiki, but it was some time ago and I have obviously forgotten this and probably most of that which I read.
Funny thing is, I can only recall this happening once before, probably in this game as it was quite recently.
Usually, I have found that if a train is to stop at a station, it is quite apparent, as there is a stopping time and a departure time.
Now that you have pointed out an alternative method, I'll know what to look out for.

Thanks

Not all services have dwell times booked at station stops. Many public timetables only list one time for arrival and departure, and SimSig timetables can follow this precedent.
