Hi, there seems to be a bug in the Exeter sim (latest version). I cannot set a route for trains routed from Paignton P1 to DVR. The only way in seems to be to lock the points and SPAd the train. This is after receiving permission to enter the DVR.

See the wiki, there is indeed no signalled route: https://www.simsig.co.uk/Wiki/Show?page=simulations:exeter:exeteroperation

Please note, authorising a train to pass a signal at danger is not a SPAD.

You can cause a SPAD, but that's not how you do it.

It is worth noting that whilst you can cause a SPAD (or technically a SPAR nowadays) in reality as a signalman, you cannot do so in Simsig.

Except by causing one with the option in the incident control panel.

True but that's not really the action of the signalman
