Couldn't find this elsewhere on the forum, hopefully I haven't missed it.

Was playing on the Birmingham area chain yesterday evening, and while I was on Saltley South Top panel I was also on Teamspeak, so I heard about a 160mph temporary speed restriction at Willington on the Derby sim. Is this just a one-off error, or could this happen again?

There aren't any sections showing as 160mph in the sim data.

If anyone does think there is an issue, if they can come back with evidence of there being an issue and it can be reported through the proper channels.

Just realised that there is a crucial word missing in the original post, I meant temporary speed restriction not speed in the sim data.

No data in Derby has a speed of 160mph. The host can add TSRs themself via the Incident Control Panel so I suspect it was that.

Generally speaking it would be better if the host him/herself reported this, not a "heard about" from a client.

Ah, now that's a lot more helpful, thank you. From that I now know it was a start-up option, which led me to the problem. 160mph does not exist, but the scenario has a command to pick a value in the range of X to Y (mph), and Y is too big. This randomness is also why nobody appears to have noticed it before, as it's probably been in a sensible range.
