Here, Stechford will not release in the normal way. When I press F, I try to pull the king lever but it won't move. There are no conflicting routes that I can see. Any ideas?

edit: now fixed, I didn't realise I wasn't allowed to release it with a train waiting at it!

Unfortunately having told 7Z01 to reverse, I now don't know how to get it back again!

Sorry to keep spamming on this thread, but now 7Z02 is asking to enter, and I tried to unlock the GF (again, no conflicting routes, no train there) and it won't unlock! (Same king lever not pulling problem again)

Did you await the 120 second release timeout?

Nope, no idea what that is. Couldn't find anything about it in the manual.

There is a message that appears in the message window when you request to free the frame.

710 has a 120 second release time out, 711 and 712 both have a 180 second release time out.

I just had this happen also. I had no message when clicking free, was a bit confusing as there was nothing in the wiki or any other indication that it was free, other than repeatedly trying to move the release lever.

I got the message when I started a new game, current game is only 6 hours in.

Don't know if its related, but I had my overview window slightly taller than the default, and when I click the frame release button,
you can see a big red line and what looks like a bunch of debug info appears on the bottom for a second.

The message type is "tip" and is only shown if in an "Easy" mode. So picking a more standard scenario would not result in that hint appearing - just like you were standing at a ground frame with no release light.

Nevertheless, I've edited the Wiki for operating frames: https://www.SimSig.co.uk/Wiki/Show?page=usertrack%3Assrun%3Alever_frames

...and the manual for New Street: https://www.SimSig.co.uk/Wiki/Show?page=simulations:newstreet:south (also the North panel).
