Hello,

I just got the Plymouth sim yesterday. Whenever I bring a hst/ long train out of Laria MPD Dn sidings the train is too long for Mount Gold sidings( abeam the wash) so I take it into the siding further along. When I then send the train to the mainline I’m left with two trains. The first one does as instructed but the second one just stays there. Happens on every long train I bring out of the TMD

Which timetable are you using, which train is causing the issue, and can you provide a saved game from either just before or after the 'split' has happened?

Trains won't split unless a Divide activity is shown in their timetable.

Hi the timetable is the Plymouth Mid Summer 2018. It happens on all HST/Voyagers/IET trains out of the down MPD in the morning. Will send a save game when I next have chance to play it.

Many thanks
John

If you look at the F2 screen after the "split" are there two separate trains with the same headcode showing? If there is only one showing then the headcode remaining in the sidings is an orphan headcode that has been left behind after the train has moved and can be deleted.

I suspect that it is just a TD being left behind rather than a train.
