    Doing the scenarios now but I'm always very late. I'm doing the speed limit but not sure if I'm doing something wrong? On the loop at Boston, is it really 5mph?

    I haven’t arrived on time yet in 2 scenarios and 7 services.

    I did get gold for them all however.

    It's very difficult to stay on time, especially if you have safety systems enabled.
    I suspect that most station stops for commuter services are missing the 'Dispatch Beyond' tick (a similar issue once plagued the LIRR). There also seems to be a very large distance between signals along the NEC, meaning that if you have safety systems enabled you might find yourself with adverse signals, chugging along at 30 MPH while you're two miles out from a station. This is far from ideal.

    ATC and ACSES seem to be behaving as I'd expect it to, but there are always red signals past stations. Practicing defensive driving skills can be fun, but it gets bothering to have your speed restricted when the track ahead is perfectly clear.

    I obey the speed limits and I'm always on time on the Boston route.
