Hugely grateful for this timetable, big fan of the New Street sim.

I've just launched a session, from scratch, and the day is Tuesday. 1Y57 is due to go into Platform 2 from the International direction and join a train with the headcode PL2. 1Y57 phones in querying the route, with the F2 menu saying insufficient platform or words to that effect.

Not sure how to proceed, or whether this constitute a wee bug.

Hiya Alex,
you will have to set the mid platform signal first from sig 199 to the red arrow in front of sig 233 before selecting sig 154 to the mid platform. Setting 199 first tells the driver to 'come on top' of the set already in the platform.

Have a look mat the instruction manual on the link below for full instructions.

Cheers
Phil
