A complicated to explain, what I think is a series of bugs in New St (as it didn't used to do this), appears to be affecting all platforms.

High number platforms:

Route a train in, to 11B, train enters and leaves but route from 11A to 11B remains. Happens on 10A and 10B and Proof House end 166 to 165 on 9 also.

182 halfway down on 12 remains set so you can't call a train in behind, pull the route and although it's red it gives the 120 timeout message.

Similarly if you have two trains heading in the same direction on the same platform the signal won't return to red after the first train has left, meaning you have to pull the signal and time it out causing a COA.

Low number platforms:
Unable to set a permissive route onto trains unless the train is occupying the section behind, this may be accurate to real life, I'm unsure, but isn't replicated on the high number platforms. Route shows then disappears almost instantly.

The timing of my save doesn't have a fault ready to go but if you play through it should appear.

Thank you, is there a timescale on when it might be fixed? It's been like this for quite a while, following on from an update to the sim.

Further to my previous query is route not picking!

Unable to set from 312 at Soho South Jn to 322 at Soho North Jn, no overlap available message given but I can't see why and I haven't seen this since the update that caused the routes to not drop at New St. (I have hightlighted in pink for easy viewing).

5W36 has just departed from 331 off Soho depot.

Similarly in the morning unable to set route from 328 to 310 if route is set out of New St towards Wolvs, I don't have a save for that sadly, but imagine they are linked?

That's a core code issue which is also on Mantis, unrelated to any sim update.

That may be an overlap issues that has recently been fixed (overlaps are a very complex piece of code) and is currently under test. If there is another route and train in the vicinity, and after that releases/passes, the route now becomes available, then this is probably that bug.
