    I've played this service twice now and both times I'm stopped at Slough with a red signal. There is a train ahead of me also at a red signal which never moves. Eventually all traffic comes to a halt and at no time can I get permission to proceed. Has anyone else experienced this? is there a workaround?

    I experienced that and all I did is wait, I know it's very annoying but you have to be patient, it's a glitch that will not be patched by DTG

    So if I wait, it will eventually turn green and I can proceed?

    OK so I'm nearly an hour into the traffic stop (waiting patiently). I'm curious, why will DTG not patch this? Have they said that? It's in the base game?

    An hour ?! Jesus that's insane I never experienced that, why DTG will not patch this and other glitches ? It's their trademark they collect the money but don't repair what's broken

    Ah ok, HAHAHAHAHA Yeah, all trains are stopped. I've scanned the entire track. I was scheduled for the next stop at 8:46am. The clock now says 9:59. No movement, no green light and I can't get permission.

    Well, it's a damn shame, pardon my french. This is part of the BASE GAME. It should not happen. I'm going to abandon this service.

    I'm just grateful the GWR services aren't required for the platinum. Still taking the mick though.

    Did you load the service from a save?
    If you load the service from a save, sometimes a red light that cannot be cleared stops your service.

    The only solution to this is to run a service start to finish without quitting and coming back to it.

    The other reason for a red light I have had (On WSR) was that a set of points at the very end of the line, miles away from my train were not set correctly. Adjusting the points in map mode cleared the signal to green.

    Ah thank you, I'll try that. No, I ran this service fresh from the start. I try not to run from save files as that presents a whole 'nother can of worms. LOL

    Unfortunately, on this service, I could only find 2 points that could b changed which didn't change anything. All traffic eventually stops at red lights.

    This is still an issue. Hopefully in the next patch?

    Yeah I played this when the game first came out, crazy to think it’s still not been patched!! I waited over an hour for the same and eventually every track and a train waiting at a red!

    This particular problem is not covered in the patch notes so I am assuming it was not fixed.
