I have a queue building on Millerhill Goods Down. 6S30 seems to be stuck at M16.

Has the signaller gone to sleep?

Save attached.

I had to end up removing the train. The queue cleared itself.

This was something I thought I'd fixed to do with trains running too close behind each other.
I'll have a look later.

(thought bubble) **Wonder if I can reset the Sim size in a .ssg to expose the debug area?** .

Unzip the SSG, in the text file, look for Height and Width, and increment, and then rezip

Series of coincidences related to the fact that you diverted a train through Millerhill which caused the hidden point for the yard to be locked at precisely the moment the route was called and as it was not available that was that. If the diverted train had hoved off a couple of seconds earlier it'd have worked - not sure I'd ever worked that one out without the save and even then it took a couple of runs to get it.

Well done Peter! It takes a keen eye

Would be interested if the OP can relate to this -

In this attached save, 6E40 has been diverted because of the Musselburgh block.

I definitely called in for permission, however:

04:23:15 Millerhill not advised of 6E40, dalays may occur
04:23:59 6E40 waiting at red signal MHU
04:25:20 6E40 waiting at red signal MHU
04:26:14 6E40 waiting at red signal MHU
04:26:51 6E40 received an adverse change of aspect at signal MHU
04:31:35 6E40 waiting at red signal MHU

I've also rung in for 6S62, a down diversion - but there's no confirmation of either train in the message window.

6S62 also gets stuck at M16. Think the best option for both is sadly to remove.

A direct consequence of the fix to the first report. May take a few days as I'll maybe have to rewrite.

Actually Peter, I do remember when I sent the diverted train which caused this bug, Millerhill had complained that I'd not notified them of the train, but I had previously called to notify them.

One thing to note, I entered the headcode in lowercase.

Not sure if it's relevant?

Peter - likewise. When I sent subsequent trains to M'hill from both directions I made sure the headcode was uppercase - and did not get a complaint on these occasions (but the trains still got stuck at MHU/M16)

Two separate issues, the phone call just determines the length of delay in passing the train through.
The Uppercase thing is correct, but I have a fix to removes case sensitivity.
