Chester Frequently Asked Questions

Do you think you've found a bug? Or do you have a problem running the simulation, check through this thread first.

Remember timetables are dealt with in the relevant timetable thread.

Please read the following information:-

- The Halton curve is only available in one direction (towards Liverpool) in the 2006 era, it is only bi-directional in the 2018 era.

- Opposing routes into platform 3 require the first train to occupy the platform track for 90 seconds before the opposing route can be set.

- When chaining to North East Wales you must select the correct era on both simulations

Hi mate I have tried to play the sim twice but a message flashes up about 20 mins in to say "licence removed from this machine". Seconds later game closes down, completely. No time to screen shot..

It looks like you're locking your licenses for other sims, but haven't done for Chester. Licenses aren't related to the sim, you'd be better asking this in the V5 loader thread.

For a train from the RCP line

Entry point - Chester RCP Line (451) [or is it 541?]
Timing Point - Chester Goods Warehouse

For a train from the Goods Warehouse

Entry point - Chester Goods Warehouse
Timing Point - Chester RCP Line

Note it's an exit location so trains will fall off the sim

Thanks, i thought a shunt from Mickle Trafford - The Goods Warehouse (Or Tamper siding as it is now) would be a reverse move but you have to do 2 separate trains as its an entry/exit point!

Cheers

If a train is waiting for the single line at Mouldsworth towards Chester/Mickle Trafford and a second train enters the approach berth from Greenbank the second train overwrites the TD at Mouldsworth.

Wrong forum, but the same happens on Metrolink from Timperley if they enter close together.

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.
