Receive a message 'Train on green MWL at LC 54 MWL' but can't seem to find anything in the manual for what that means.

Happens when a train passes over LC 54.

Any ideas?

It's a bug that's been sorted. Will be fine when the sim is next updated.

Mantis #17497

LC54 has Miniture Warning Lights to show the foot user whether there is a train approaching or not.
LC54 can be seen in this Google Street View.
A simple overview from wikipedia is;
Quote:
MWL/MSL – miniature warning light/miniature stop light crossing
These crossings are designed for use at foot crossings or private roads (where the user has to operate the barriers/gates themselves at the latter). A small set of red and green lights alert the user as to the state of the railway; green for safe to cross, red for STOP, train approaching. These started to appear around 1964, and are still common today.


The warning message is given because the train crosses over the crossing on the Down Fast while these lights are still green. This bug, which has been reported (17497), is caused by the strike in point which start the 'crossing sequence' being too close to the crossing, so the train passes while the light is still green rather than red.
