Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but I couldn't see anything on the Forum.

Anyway, playing the 1992 timetable and got to about 06:47, when I inadvertently set a route for 6D55 towards Bardon Hill instead of into Lounge Opencast. The driver didn't complain and the train just carried on regardless.

I've attached a save taken just before doing so and I have reproduced it from that save as well.

I've seen this on other routes (most notably Southampton) and it's always freighters that don't complain so I always assumed that freight is more flexible with routing. Hopefully someone can give a bit of guidance on this as I have always either huffed off in frustration at myself or done a force removal of consist from the menus...

Unlike the real railway where the driver will stop and query things if (s)he thinks the wrong route has been set, in SimSig the wrong-route call is part of the data written for the junction and is an extra piece of work for the developer to do. If the developer has omitted that (deliberately or inadvertently) from the data for the junction then no train will query the route set no matter what the simulated driver knows.

Quite understandable.

In that case, I'll have to be extra careful in future just in case

Except in the cases where the driver does take the route, whether by mistake or by being unable to stop in time due to insufficient warning of which route was to be taken. Usually a 50:50 driver:signaller blame for the former situation.
