A few weeks ago I mentioned that we'd like your help. Some of you already tested something for Headshot119 (thanks!). Today I have an updated Victoria Central for your enjoyment.

Our mission here is to find any bugs - not to ask for new features. I've left a couple of minor issues in for you to find. Multiplay if you can as we want to know messages are going to the correct workstation, where appropriate. ARS regulation is core code, so we're not interested in that. Please also try chaining to adjacent simulations. Many thanks.

Please report which era you've tried.

V1.7 build 9 is attached. You must already have a license for this.

Currently trying 2014 era using the 2015 TT and trains that stop at Battersea Park Staff Halt do not step up their TT. So on arrival at Victoria they will say "at buffer Stop".

Thanks Geoff. I have recently started compiling a new Victoria Central 2020 Timetable, so I'll let you know if I find anything untoward.

Yes - can't see an issue with some random testing.

probably the wrong terminology - should the signal in rear be returned to danger if the proving fails on the banner?

9A74-1 is missing an arrival time in its schedule. This is a timetable error.

Banner logic in SimSig has not changed. If the signal the banner repeats is off then the banner is not proved.

It said these signal boxes do not chain (era 2014 for Victoria and 2019 for Three Bridges)

I may not have correctly installed the simulation. I apologise.

A train arriving on the Up at Tulse Hill P3 and reveres, it looses its Headcode on departure. Is this the result of the departure signal being a shunt type?

This is nothing to do with the timetable in use.

This is as per real life - there is no stepping from shunt signals around Tulse Hill.

I note that I could not find this in the manual.

Labelling by the Latchmere curve in the 2014 era reads "to Clapham Jn Plts 0-2 and Windsor Lines". As there is not a a platform 0 yet shouldn't it be platforms 1-2 and Windsor lines

The location code for that side used in some systems does show as "Clapham Junction Platforms 0-2". Whether it will ever get built is another thing!

Winter 1982 -1983 timetable. 6m34 should have been routed up fast to up slow at Balham for Clapham 16 but mistakenly routed up fast. Calls waiting at red signal 628 rather than wrong route.

Hi Geoff. I have found a problem in 2014 mode. I have a train (3S92/H47011) that goes into plat 3 at Crystal Palace, then reverses to sig VC170, reverses again then goes in to P4, and continues on towards Gypsy Hill.
There appears to be no option in the sim to do a reversal at signal VC170.
Is this a bug or am I missing something?

This is the timetable for 3S92
