I'm really enjoying Moss Vale, it's great to have something so familiar and close to home.

I've encountered an issue with 2233 arriving at Berrima Jn to reverse into the cement works. The train has come to a stand with the rear not clear of BJ84. It had plenty of room to pull past, the next down signal was off. I'm a bit short of workarounds because I'm running the sim on Linux via Crossover, and a number of things aren't working - including right clicking on the train list. I'm going to go back to a previous save and see if it does it again. I'll own any Linux induced weirdness, but maybe it's a sim bug?

Medium term, I'm going to dual boot Windows and get all the options back!

Is this the same situation that caused a major re-write of bill_gensheet's Motherwell TT? As I understand it, the core code recently changed and now marks trains as arrived before the full train has reached the relevant TC. One fix is to change the stopping position to FX (not sure if a plain Far End suffices).

Can't say I've ever seen this happen

If you can load an older save and get it to happen each time, would you mind uploading your save here?

That's not true.

It was already reported and fixed, though I can't find the ticket number at first glance. The sim still has some issues outstanding which is why it hasn't been re-released with this fix yet.

I stand corrected although there was a core code change that required some TT editing.

Thanks everyone for your help. It sounds like the right people are onto it. Hopefully we'll get a fix at some point.

I have noticed that too with it and 2235.
All I did to get around it when it appeared out of Picton, was set its "next location" in the Timetable edit to signal BJ84 and it worked fine.

Cheers
Dave
