Just bought the re-released Edinburgh, brings back lots of memories of the old days!

Experiencing an issue with the first train in from Hilton Jn (5G24).

I've slotted the route and the train enters, but then gets held at EB674. Cannot set the route to EB672; sim reports "Route not available".

I've read the manual, which just says about releasing HJ7, no mention of EB674! Any pointers, or is this a bug?

Please find savefile attached.

Seems to be the same issue as https://www.simsig.co.uk/Forum/ThreadView/51117?postId=130033 ?

Looking at the version history in the manual, it appears to have been fixed but waiting an update to be pushed out today.

Out of interest, if this is a 'simple' port from scrolly to loader, will previous TTs work or have their been other off-sim changes which will render them incompatible?
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Ah. It can be difficult to find specific problems in deep threads! Thanks for pointing me to that.

I've been trying to run the 1985 TT this morning and apart from some initial seeding changes and other minor ARS issues (which were always an issue even in the EXE sim) it has, so far, been OK.

Please keep us posted.
I have that TT as well as a 1993 one, so would be interesting to see if they can be run in the Loader. Can't check myself at the moment as I'm trying to get a Carlisle game finished first.

It started as a simple process that got steadily more complicated for reasons that had nothing to do with the actual conversion work.

I'd expect most timetables would run out of the box with perhaps some minor tweaks for less than a handful of trains. I believe there have been some changes to the way ACI works in CoreCode which may require significant changes to the way train divide instructions are ordered. Others who understand that will be better placed to explain.

The 1993 (v2) timetable is a non-starter in loader. It uses the 'long' platform in a way that makes all the sleeper timetables invalid.
The update is already done and tested as part of the loader update testing, so will go public inside a week.

There are also 1993 chaining timetables for CSCOT (minor update) and Motherwell (new)
