I have a track circuit failure in the top line of Latchford MSC siding as per the attached screenshot. I need to get loco 0T75 into the bottom line of Latchford MSC siding in order to join to the waiting 6T75. I can find no way of manually identifying and therefore setting the points which switch between these lines to enable 0T75 to join 6T75. I've attached a saved file. Can anyone help?

I see the issue in that the track has dropped as a train has left the top line, and of course the subroute locking has remained in.

There is no player control for the points, as the route in will always route to the bottom line. If it helps, the point is PAJ3HP.

Best option I suspect is mot likely waiting or clearing and reoccupying the track once route locking has dropped, however, I don't remember how the sim handles talking a train past a signal without route locking in place (Plus the track ahead of 16/17 is the same track, so you won't get a proceed aspect either)

The route will remain locked until the TCF is rectified as I presume it would do in real life, therefore you can't do anything until the TCF is rectified. In the real thing you'd have I would have thought staff on site who could manually wind the points over and talk the loco past the signal if required but if the routes locked in the sim it's just a matter of waiting.
