CR53 Updates




Goods trains do not become ready for departure until either Assign is used, or the train is complete and moved beyond the normal shunt limit. This allows portions to be added even after the scheduled departure time.
A passenger train in a siding will not cause beeping until 3 minutes before departure if only a simple shunt away from a platform, e.g. at Llanymynech.
Some loco duties have been adjusted in line with further research.
Some trains have running times adjusted to fit the schedule better.
The check for too many portions added to a train has been corrected.

2020.08.13 It was possible to put a Brecon line departure in MLA or MLE at Moat Lane and have no way to get it out again.
2020.07.20 It was possible for a goods train to be stuck at Forden with traffic to unload and nowhere to put it.
If a goods arrival at Oswestry was shunted into a siding that was not empty, on arrival in the siding the goods train disappeared.

A coal wagon had been left blocking the main line at MHC at Machynlleth on Sunday. We don't know how that happened, but blame local vandals after a Saturday night out!

2020.07.04 The help file has been expanded to give a description of location DJH on the Dovey Junction page.
A test has been added to prevent uncoupling at locations on the main line, e.g. MHB and MHC at Machynlleth.

The password for the updated copy of CR53 is the destination of the 1.08 pm departure from Newtown on Saturdays, in lower case, i.e. with the initial letter not a capital.
