Two trains in quick succession from Leatherhead 18/07/2020 at 22:01 #129740

Currently playing the April 2012 TT, obviously in pre-2012 era/mode.

At 08:44:31 I have 2E12 entering at Leatherhead running with a loss of power and currently 4 minutes late.
At 08:45:01 I get 2S58 entering at Leatherhead currently running on-time.

2E12 correctly appears in the APPRoach berth. But the first headcode that appears at Signal CA184 is ****. (This appears to be 2E12).

2S58 correctly appears in the APPRoach berth. This headcode successfully transfer to the TD berth at CA184 signal.

Shouldn't need a save for this - should be easily recreatable by running this timetable from around 08:40 or very shortly thereafter. Or simply use debug tools to quickly enter two trains in fairly quick succession from Leatherhead.

Simulation version 1.2
Loader 5.3

Side note - I'm surprised that *X** doesn't appear, as per Non-Described Special Description (NDSD).

Keeping my current profile picture up until RAIB complete and release their investigation report. #RestInPeace #RIP #RailwayFamily

A save is ALWAYS helpful for the development and testing teams is help identify issues as unseen problems could be causing the seemingly obvious that may be more difficult to find without a save.

In this case running the timetable again from 08:40 wouldn't necessarily show the problem because according to your description 2E12 is running late which wouldn't be the case in running the tt afresh and therefore the problem is unlikely to occur.

As the author of the tt in question I can't check atm as I'm still doing some testing on other sims using the previous loader version, but I sure someone in the development team will be able to have a look at some point.

But please always include a save no matter how trivial it may seem

The reason I didn't provide a save is because I believe anyone (simulation developer or testers) with appropriate access to the debug menu/tools should be able to easily recreate this as I originally described

Nevertheless, here's a recreated save with the same bug occurring... Run it until about 00:02:37 when the first train headcode that appears at CA184 should just be "****"

(I've had to 'recreate' this save because I have given up with this simulation and the genuinely excellent timetable for the time being, as some of the simulation bugs I have found recently really take the enjoyment out of playing it.)

Reason: Reworded and elaborated upon regarding recreating the simulation bug

Couldn't recreate the NDSD (it's already set to *X**) but fixed the quick succession issue, plus a couple of other minor bugs. Watch for an update.

Retested and confirmed as fixed (can't even recreate the NDSD myself now). Thank you very much to all involved in such a speedy fix.
