Hi,

I seem to be having real trouble with a shunt from WM1181 (Willesben TMD) reversing at WM1184.

Any route from 1184 to 724 or 328 gives "Points locked reverse by another route), despite having keyed all the relevant points on the sim.

I asked driver to inspect and the train is now stuck on the crossover complaining about points set against.

Is there a non-visible pointwork that might be catching me out?

Thanks
Jamie

I would hazard a guess that the sim is not programmed to prove such a route, to either 724 or 328. Your only course of action is to lock the points and authorise the driver to pass the signal at danger.

I'd suggest that the TT for that train be changed so that it enters at the Up end of Willesden TMD, at WN1180, thus eliminating the reversal on the Down Fast.

Incidentally, locking points at WM1184 normal and then running wrong-way to cross at Willesden West London Junction to 328, worked although it was still a manual MA rather than accepted route.

However, whilst running this path I did get an odd gap in the track display (see attached).

Thanks

Routes from 1184 were raised as mantis 16695 and it looks like its been fixed for the next version

The missing TC occupation also appears to be resolved
