I'm playing Salisbury for the first time in a long while - the 1988 'Withered Arm' timetable in 1980 era. I have 6Y62 waiting at Wilton headed for Dinton MOD but have just found that the Dinton ground frames are not listed via the 'Show' menu (and, indeed, the documentation for the sim says they are OOU - though I think I've used them in the past). Is this a bug that has crept in somewhere? Save attached.

Hah! And to cap that, at 11:30:00 the Dinton shunter requests permission for 0Y62 to enter! Second save attached.

Hmmm. *Followed* by a message at 11:30:11 that 0Y62 will be about 15 minutes late entering my area. Something isn't right, methinks!

Can you confirm which version of the simulation & Loader you're using? I've opened the 11:10 save, and the GFs are visible in the 'Show' menu, however the GF release button's aren't there. I can't test further as I don't own the sim.

I do own a copy of the sim and i see the same thing, ground frames in list but releases invisible. upon initial load i can see them but then they disappear and are then unuseable. I would hazzard a guess at something wrong with the save as various text at the end of the lines saying where they goto are missing and replaced with notes. I do like that blue note :)

I am on loader 4.15.1 and sim 1.1

Thanks all. I've/you've solved one problem - for some reason I was stuck with v1.0 of the sim. v1.1 (now installed) does, indeed, list the Dinton lever frames in the menu. However, like everyone else, I see the release buttons for only a fraction of a second when the screen loads. I was already on loader 4.15.1.

I've just loaded up Salisbury, and saved a game in the 1980s era, and loading it up works fine.

I suspect that the Version 1 save game isn't compatible with version 1.1.
