Platform "too short" call 14/08/2020 at 13:12 #130635

Afternoon,

Whilst starting a quick run through of my Saturday 2020 TT for Birmingham New Street, I have 1Y57 ringing in from NS154 (Down Stour, New Street Tunnels) complaining the platform is too short.

I have 1Y55 seeded in 3B (NS232) and the route set in rear of 1Y55 (NS198) to allow 1Y57 to come in for booked attachment.

Never seen this behaviour exhibited before on the BHM sim, caught me by surprise!

Done a little bit of tweaking and if you set 1Y55's seeding gap to 0 and make 1Y57 far end stop it will work, you must set the call on from 198 to the red triangle at 232 before setting the route into the platform from 154.

Scrap the above - just re-run from the save as long as the call on is set from 198 to the red triangle for 232 it will work - no need to edit anything

Yep, just as the real signallers do (backsetting - mid platform signal first, then signal to enter the station).
