I'm playing Pascal's 1992 timetable and getting on ok so far, although with a few mistakes and having to re-run from earlier saves.

I've got to 00:55 and have a problem.
In the screenshot you can see 0Z72 with a route set to what I think is the Arsley Loco Siding but I think that I've made a mistake because the train doesn't move.

Would someone please advise me what I have done wrong and perhaps give some guidance.

Thanks :-)

I can't see what you've done wrong looking at that screengrab providing you set the route from from AJ47 to the loco sdg grey arrowhead & then from AJ5 to AJ47 [on the Arpley Jn panel] & then from 222 to the greyed out GPS on the main panel the signals all clear straight away for me. I think you've set the route in the wrong sequence.

That's what I did wrong. I set the route from 222 to grey signal AJ47AX first, then from AJ5 to AJ47 and from there to the grey Loco Sidings exit triangle.

Still got the train to its destination, although somewhat late.

You always set that route up in reverse, even if the loco reverses behind 228 signal. Similar to locos going onto Springs Branch depot you set that in reverse starting with 73 to the grey arrow on the neck & then working backwards to where the loco is going to enter.

Thanks for the advice. I've just done that with 0F37 so hope that it moves ok.

Just out of interest what Day of the Week are you running? Saves asking when the next problem you encounter crops up.

You also require the second half of the route set from Signal AJ5, as this signal is Arpleys wrong direction acceptance from Warrington.
