Cannot set route from NH3 to NH20 20/09/2020 at 19:19 #132627

Having trouble signalling a train over the crossover at Newtonhill onto the down line - NH3 to NH20.

The track circuit beyond is occupied in the attached save game but still can't clear the signal when it's cleared.

This is with the mechanical signalling turned on, if that makes a difference...

I have no trouble setting this route on an empty sim. What happens when you set the route? Do you get a message like 'route not available' (or any other) or does the signal not turn white? What should happen is that the top disk changes from red to white.

How have you managed to set the route Albert, even on an empty sim I can reproduce the issue.

I got "route not available" even after the track circuit in advance was clear, with points keyed and no conflicting routes or Line Clears.

Apologies, I had mechanical interlocking off.

I've just turned it on, and can indeed set all routes across Newtonhill except this one. The error it produces is 'Route not available'.

Whether AB is in use does not matter.

Unless I am doing something wrong this is reproducable, when starting up the sim ensure that "mechanical interlocking" has been selected as a start-up option, OP called it "mechanical signalling" so it may have been missed.
It's not my fault! I was left unsupervised.

No, you're not doing something wrong. I was not reading properly.

Cheers, yes, sorry for the typo! Will play with mechanical _interlocking_ off for the time being - it's already pretty click-heavy.

Who gets access to Mantis? Anyone who asks or only the elect?

Hi DonRiver.

Developers and Testers have access to Mantis. Mantis allows a structured reporting procedure, which like this instance, has been picked up by a couple of members and a couple of testers. This give us the first chance to use your information to try and reproduce the issue reported, which is was and then one of us will raise the ticket for the developer to address. (I'm aware that you didn't ask for all this info, but I thought I would just share it anyway, ;-))

Only thing I would advise, which you have already picked up on, is to give exact details of the start up settings, scenario, era, TT, loader version, sim version and TT version.

Good spot for this issue at Newtonhill.

Regards

Just to add, we are in the process of making Mantis more accessible to the public. It's not ready yet though.
