Currently running v3 of the 1989 tt on v2.2 of the sim and v5.7 of the loader. Have run into an issue with 6H21 which is supposed to exit Ashburys arr/dep towards Ardwick Jn but train list shows him stopped at AS893N. Run the sim forward for another 10minutes but this never changes and MP1113 never clears. Left or right clicking on the slot release 309 controls doesn't seem to do anything.

Save game attached.

Any guidance welcome as I couldn't find anything to help me in the sim manual.

Thanks in advance.

Happened to me previously as well - you need to set a route from the greyed out signal (AS893) to MP1113; this will also grant the slot.
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Cheers guys !!

Glad it wasn't just me that caught out by that one. I'm used to setting a route towards a greyed-out signal but obviously hadn't considered setting a route from such a signal. Just out of interest, how common is that in the real world ?

Maybe worth a mention in the sim manual (if I didn't miss that too) ?

Very common in the Midlands / LNW zones and is also used elsewhere.

Bear in mind we're representing a panel in IECC form so it's not exactly the same.

Birmingham New Street's combined panel:

(the "signal" 1M09 is approaching in the top left is Saltley's signal, but the New Street signaller does the action of setting a route from that "signal" which grants the slot to Saltley).
