I have 0B71 which is timetabled to go to the Gloucester Loco Depot via the Up Relief and Barnwood Junction. As I can't actually see the Gloucester Loco Depot anywhere, I took it to mean the Loco Shed. If I set the route from signal 450 to the Loco Shed, I get a wrong route warning. Setting the route towards the grey triangle (Old Yard, etc) it happily accepts this but comes to a stand at signal 454.

So the question is this: Where is the Gloucester Loco Depot? Any help would be appreciated.

Your life can have a thousand different meanings or maybe just one....I'd recommend more than one in case you got it wrong - (Rezende)

I'm playing the 1985 v1.112 which has a start time of 00:00
I have attached a saved game as requested. 0B71 is just arriving at Barnwood Junction.

However, perhaps you could also advise me where this location actually is.

Thanks

So, on opening the save, 0B71 is in the correct place for its reversal at Barnwood Junction UGL. And he does indeed want to be routes from 444 to 450 to Loco Shed

However, when I opened the sim, 0B71 has as its next location Gloucester Sig 413 (Reverse). When you routed the train out of the Horse Box Platform at Gloucester, what way did you route him, where did you get him to do his reversal movement, and did you manually reverse him? When you got the wrong route phonecall, did you read what the actual location he was looking for?

When I opened your save, I stepped up the TT to have him at the location of Barnwood Junction and he happily made his way into the Loco Shed

Per your save, when I clicked on 0B71 it was waiting at signal 137 and the timetable hadn't been stepped up - maybe you had abandoned it previously?

By stepping up to Barnwood Junction, and asking to shunt, it was then perfectly happy to head back into Loco Shed via Down Spur 2.

Ok, thanks for that. I'll do what you did.
I don't recall abandoning the timetable and can't think why I would have had to. Anyway, I can now continue with this, so far excellent tt.

Thanks
