Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway

Post  Jonathan David on Sun 16 Oct 2016, 7:04 pm

I have rather belatedly tried running one of the activities, namely Pines Express Bath to Bournemouth on this excellent route.
No problems until I get to Poole. Then just before departure time I get a "derailed" notice and the activity ends. Investigation reveals two trains crashing at the junction just before (west of?) Poole, both running on clear signals. I assume this must be a problem with the setting up of the signals at the junction. Has anyone else come across this? More important in a way, is there any way for someone who has never attempted to write or modify a route to correct this?

I must re-acquaint myself with this route.

in the meantime the only possible solution I could suggest is to open the AE and attempt to remove one or both of the offending trains.

Hi Jonathan,
In MSTS, there's a known problem with some diamond crossings in that they can't be linked to signals and, so, are not protectable.   I say "can't", but I believe there is a way, but it would take an experienced route builder to sort it out.  It's certainly not a job for a novice!!

If it doesn't involve a diamond crossing, please tell us the activity with the problem and, if possible, the "simulator time", then someone will be able to check it out.

Just having second thoughts - it may be possible to avoid the problem by changing the timing of one of the trains..

Cheers,
Ged

EDIT : Vern beat me to it Smile That is a good alternative.

Thanks. I thought that might be the case. In fact I have already altered the time of one of the AI trains by a minute. What I haven't checked yet is whether it has a knock on effect the Pines Express itself. There seems to be more AI traffic around Poole than in the rest of the activity.

Hi Jonathan.

Have you tried running the activity in Open rails? I have run both southbound pines express activities without incident on OR.
