Horsham P4 - Trains Refuse to Pull Up to the End of the Platform 17/05/2020 at 05:15 #126872

Hi there,

I was just playing around with Horsham sim when I realised that trains stopping in P4 of Horsham, at least in the Dn direction (I haven't tested the Up), won't pull all the way up to 847 signal, even when the train is given the FX stopping position, meaning that long trains (such as 12 Coach 377s and 700s) will overhang the platform. This is particularly irritating when the service is terminating, as you can imagine. I checked the stated platform lengths in the manual, and these units should be able to fit in the platform. Is there any way to remedy this?

Many thanks,

Jamie

I would advise removing the FX stopping position, I have ran number of tests and found that having no Far End or Far End exact the train will fit fully into the platform
It's not my fault! I was left unsupervised.

Raises a question about whether there is some sort of bug in the core code, the core code is reading the end of the platform as FX or whether the developer has written the data so the the FX position holds the train at a certain point at the platform rather than pulling up to the signal. Perhaps the developer can advise.

It would be good to find out as it makes the use of FX in any timetable problematic until we know why this is happening.

Sim default stopping position looks like it is 'NX+2' (for reversing or all trains ?)
The three track circuits in platform 4 are 109, 50 and 106m, so making 265m
I tested using 5C07 (12x377) which is 248m

Under 'default' the train stops 15m short of sig847 - so 2m back from sig838 at the London end.

The FX behaviour looks like a bug, the train stops just 20m into the 106m track circuit. The train is not hanging out a fraction, it is 69m out.

FX adjustments behave strangely too, FX+40 never even makes it into the platform !
