|Confusion at Glyndyfrdwy 05/08/2021 at 18:54 #140988|
The penultimate down train of the day for the 2016 Autumn Steam Gala, 1C09, turns at Glyndyfdwy with the engine running round. The arriving service timetable has it stopping at NX@22. I signalled the train into the station with GY5 on, intending to clear it when the loco was ready but the train came to a stand waiting for GY5 to clear. I cleared it, the train moved forward, stopped and the loco was detached.
The engine had not moved forwards far enough to pass signal GY5 which is therefore still off, but the light engine remained in the platform waiting for right away. Eventually it called in complaining that it's waiting for GY6 to clear. This is despite it not standing at GY6 but at GY5 (which is off) and that it will reverse behind GY16, never reaching GY6.
