Just received this message at 4H44 is moving to UR3 and then divide to form 0H44 and 4H44.
Any ideas chaps?

01:47:23 Warning: Not enough TD berths at Mossend to interpose next/divides for 4H44

Thanks
N.

Not an error, it Means you will have to manually interpose 0H44 and when that departs reimpose 4H44 as there is only one train describer berth for the track circuit on UR3. will probably need to reimpose 4H44 when new engine attaches as well.

To give a little more context on the issue:

On the real railway, train describer berths are only added where they are deemed necessary, as each one adds more complexity to the signalling system, and therefore increases cost. Most sidings and station platforms are equipped with two, sometimes three, TD berths, as deemed necessary. If normal working doesn't give any large advantage to adding additional berths, it won't be done to keep excess costs down. SimSig reflects that.

The message you received simply means that the siding/loop/line in Mossend where 4H44 is due to divide only has sufficient TD berths to display the 4H44 headcode, and not also the 0H44 headcode.

Ah, so really just a reminder then. I have always known this has to be done with this particular train (and others)but until, I assume, the 5.1 d/l the reminder has never come up.
Cheers all,

It is a 'Loader' update feature, not sim.
