Greetings,

I am trying to work on a timetable which has two reverse moves at Haywards Heath. Of these one uses Platform 2 as the reversing location - https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/X01000/2020-05-18/detailed - so I put this in and checked the TT by pressing "Validate" but the validator didn't like it. Further examination reveals that Signal T342 - the Up starter on Platform 2 - cannot be used for route setting which, I take it, is a bug.

Cheers,
Dave

Not a bug, T342 isn't a starter, it's a fixed red.

No bug at all, T342 is a fixed red, the validator is throwing an error as you've given the train an impossible path.

The Manual said:

Signal T342 is a fixed red, therefore no routes are possible from this signal. As such, do not send trains continuing in the Up direction into Platform 2 at Haywards Heath.

That RTT schedule has line code UV (up loop) at Copyhold Jn followed by platform 2 which is also impossible as 2 is on the down side. Platform 4 is probably meant.

Dave,

If you are trying to reverse something at Haywards Heath platform one works okay . See the attached 5R20 example which shows the lines codes

The RTT link will expire today, but you probably noticed that in the end it used platform 1. Now, would you alter the timetable to P1, or would you leave it as P2 and let the player do the alteration?

In this case SimSig won't let the schedule validate with P2 in it, so you'll need to adjust it to P1 (Or another acceptable platform)

Validation aside, I wouldn't leave something in that leaves the player in an impossible situation.

My fault I forgot the original post which mentioned why P2 couldn't be used! Ignore my idea
