5X77 Run Around 08/05/2021 at 18:11 #139372

Train 5X77 enters C&W Works at 1945. I routed it to signal 503 where the loco detaches. I then set a route for the loco (0X77) to signal 504. I would then set a route from signal 473 to signals 448 and 425 for the run around. However the loco stops before passing signal 473 and changes direction. Since it has not passed 473, I cannot set the reverse route.
Any ideas?

Which timetable are you talking about?

There are some timetables that contain trains which come out of the yard and immediately reverse back in without clearing the points - this is deliberate as it was apparently standard procedure at the time in Derby. These have a modified stopping position which you can see using NX@ followed by an offset in metres in the timetable.

Albert, you're referring to shunt moves from and to Etches Park, many of which did indeed only come so far out before going back in (normally after having come through the wash), Chris is referring to a move from the Carriage Works (Litchurch Lane) to run round on the Down Goods at the back of the station.

I don't have the sim in front of me right now so I can't answer Chris's question, but it sound like an incorrect reversal point has been used in the light engine schedule.

Oops, I was indeed referring to Etches Park. I have now looked up the signal number plan and I see you're referring to Derby Station North Jn.

Could you take a screenshot of 0X77's timetable so we can see what reversing point is in it and what stopping position?

Its already a reported issue, I just don't think the packaged timetable or sim was ever updated.

Thanks for the information. In answer to the query, I am using version 1.3, timetable 15th October 2009. It seems that this problem has already been raised, but I will attach a screen shot.

If the location 'DERBY STATION NORTH JN' is replaced by 'DERBY S.N.J REV (473)' by editing 0X77's tt, the loco behaves correctly.
In Zone 6, no one can hear you scream...
