I'm new to the sim, and running into an issue that I can't figure out. At Harrow and Wealdstone, when a train comes in the down line and needs to reverse, I assume it needs to go past platform 1, then straight to the siding. But I can't set a route from Signal 53 to the arrow at the left of the siding. Setting a route from 53 seems to want to take the south through line and not the siding.

I can set a route from 55 to the siding (arrow), but then I can't get a route from 53 to 55. Do I just wait for the train to call for the red signal at 53 then tell them to proceed?

Not sure I'm explaining this very well, but a simpler way to ask the question - how do I set a route from Signal 53 to the siding? Thanks in advance!

Hi ginks,

Have you tried setting a route from 53 to 55, then waiting for the train to stop and the route to release before setting a route from 55 into the siding? Sorry, I haven't played that sim much so don't know it very well.

EDIT: The train should stop at the red signal, there's always an overlap past signals.

Once the train has come to a stop in the platform at 55 for a short while. the overlap will cancel (the white lights will go out). At that point you can set the route into the siding. It's done like that (in reality) so that if a train fails to stop at 55 it's got somewhere to go.

You'll also need trains to stop at Stonebridge Park station, before they can be switched into the depot for the same reason.

Thanks

All I did was wrote the sim to behave like the real world.
