ARS Problems 28/06/2020 at 15:45 #128414

Hi,

I had decided to revisit the Victoria Line again as been a while, it was going ok with only needing to re-describe the trains in Brixton. But when the services started a few of them just became Non-ARS so had to make them ARS again and the other problem was that when a train had terminated at either Brixton or Walthamstow Central it didn't show it but be Non-ARS as when it was departure time the ARS wouldn't set the route. I do sometimes take over some of the ARS areas but I hadn't when all this happened.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You.

Also experiencing ARS issues in Victoria.

V212 departed Seven Sisters P5 towards Finsbury Park and I got the "routed off planned path" message.

Same again happened for V205 from Walthamstow Central P1:



I've attached a save file from just before V212 leaves Seven Sisters.

I've seen this in other sims where the visible TD does not change.
Both f2 and the timetable pop-up show the correct details and if click 'i' then 'OK' that fixes the problem (refreshes the TD).
As the sim is several years old and this was not previously a problem that I can recall I suspect something's changed in core code.
I'm sure this has been reported but can't immediately find it on Mantis.

Sorry Peter, I just realised that that's what you meant. Er. What he said ^^

I don't know if this is relevant but I assume that it might be.

LUL trains don't have headcodes as such, they have 3 digit (octal) train numbers that they run around on all day, like train 205. Train 205 might make a dozen trips each day, but its reporting number remains constant. SimSig handles this by suffixing the headcode with the trip number V205-1, V205-2, V205-3, etc. That may be to blame because you also see this with weedkillers. I know I was playing Marylebone recently and the 3J04 RHTT that also runs around on a constant headcode, with each trip changing the suffix -- 3J04-CA5 becomes 3J05-CA6 becomes ... -- has the same problem. Every time it starts away after reversing it becomes non-ARS. You can just make the train ARS again and it's all fine.

It's by design. But I accept that there are situations where working like real life is not helpful.
