2P63 off planned path and made non-ARS? 02/06/2020 at 18:18 #127346

I’m playing the 15th October 2009 tt. I routed 2P06 into platform 3 as per its timetable but when the TD changed to 2P63 the ARS status in 2P63's timetable read “Off planned path”. Furthermore, an odd message appeared in the “Message” window: 10:00:53 2P63 in 0445 invalid timetable.
I re-ran the sim and the same thing happened.

Now, none of this really bothers me as I can just route 2P63 manually. However, I’m curious as to why all this has happened.
Could somebody please give an explanation.

2P63 does indeed have an invalid timetable. It's impossible to get from platform 3 to the slow line.

Mmmm, I didn't see that. My powers of analysis are somewhat lacking.
I tried to change the ARS status when 2P63 was on its way but to no avail. I presume that it can't be done.

Thanks for the explanation Geoff.

ARS is not a miracle worker :-)

Seriously though, if the timetable is invalid to begin with, then ARS won't be able to fix it. It shouldn't really try to fix it as there could be an underlying issue causing an unacceptable misrouting.
