Hi all!

I'm thoroughly enjoying this new addition to the SimSig collection! I used to travel between Cleethorpes and London semi-regularly and have been looking forward to this one for some time, so thank you!

I have discovered a situation where the points between the Lincoln lines and the Newark Curve (P2190 if I read the Incident Control Panel correctly?) are locked reverse preventing me sending a train from Lincoln across the crossing towards Newark Castle. I have a delayed train in Newark North Gate platform 2 and a Lincoln-bound train in platform 3 awaiting its departure time. As a result, I had to hold an approaching train at signal 96 in order to await a platform at North Gate. Initially, setting the route to 96 from 98 caused the P2190 points to lock (to protect the crossing) as it grabbed the overlap across the crossing. The overlap has now timed out, but it still hasn't released the points. I can, strangely, set a route in the opposite direction across the crossing (from signal 85 to 87; Newark Castle towards Lincoln). Are points P2190 meant to stay locked in this case (i.e. should I have held the train at signal 98 to keep access to the crossing clear) or have I discovered a bug?

Thanks again!

Craig was more awake than I was.

Oh dear, I don't think I'm fully awake either, it seems! I read that whole thread just in case, and even chuckled to myself at the "I'll train with another train shortly," and completely missed the point of that very post! :facepalm:
