Hi, working without ARS and 5N24 is waiting in platform 1A to join with 2N21 to form the 2N24. When I route 2N21 from the North toward 1A, I'munable to get it beyond platform 1B. Looks like 5N24 is in the down position and the sub route is locked to cross over the points from 1B to 1A.

Short of Extreme measures how can I berth 2N21 into 1B.

Thanks.

A saved game would be good then players can investigate and solve the problem a lot easier.

Have you got a route set from any other signals

that screenshot shows 2N21 miles away from the station and doesn't show the error message you are getting when trying to set routes. can you attach a save file (.ssg) from just before?

I had no idea you could do this. So 2N21 is lined up into platform 1 - needs to go into 1a.

Some how 5N24 and 2N21's timetables have gone out of sync!

To fix the problem, Once 2N21 has arrived at P1A, you need to abandon both timetables and reinstate them. Once they have no timetable, have 2N21 pass signal 116 at stop. Make sure that 5N24 is facing in the down direction. Then edit them to show the trains location which will be Sheffield. Then you need to edit each timetable again to update their activities. Once done the trains will join.

The Timetables are not out of sync 5N24 arrives from the HS at the near end and 2N21 is timetabled to go to the far end of 1A

I'll look into the issue a little more, it may need 5N24 bringing in to join 2N21 and swapping their stopping positions around

There's a simulation bug [#24951] that's preventing a call-on being set into P1A. This will be fixed in the next release.

To work around it, when 2N21 arrives in P1B, authorise it to pass 116 at danger- you may also need to instruct it to shunt forward, and if it still won't move, abandon the timetable (F2-> Timetable Options-> Abandon Timetable), authorise it to pass the signal, and once it's moved into 1A re-instate the timetable.

Thanks - so I had to abandon timetable as mentioned and then move location back to Sheffield to initiate the join. Thanks for help.

In real life, Platform sharing is not allowed on 1A.
You would have one train stood on 1A and the other on 1B. S112 would be cleared and the train on 1A would then draw forward to join on P1B

I may change this so that the inbound goes into HS for the other unit as theres plenty of time in the turnaround

Out of interest, what's the reason for this?

Primarily because the SBSIs say you can't, but I believe its because P1A is actually quite short and, in these days of defensive driving, drivers were stopping short and fouling the crossover.

In view of Mikes input - 2N21 will now run empty to the Holding siding to collect the 2nd Unit in the next TT update.
