    So I was just playing a Timetable Service on the Peninsula Corridor. Specifically, the MP15DC Extra 07: Rescue Failed Train service. I've managed to bring the failed train back to CEMOF, shunt the failed Gallery Cab Car back to a siding, and I had just connected a replacement Gallery Cab Car to it. The train itself was on Fuel Track #2, and at this point, I was to get over to the other side of CEMOF using Fuel Track #1. So I'm on my way, literally passing the train on my right, and I look dead ahead and I see a train heading right for me! After quickly inspecting the trackage I realize that this train has no outlet and is heading right for me! I swiftly drop to Idle and fully engage my independent brake, stopping dead, and so does the oncoming train. We were both doing the 10 Mph speed limit, so this wasn't a problem. I've never been so exhilarated playing this game. Anyway, I threw my loco into reverse and went way out to try to escape the train, which ended up backing into one of the CEMOF shed tracks. At this point, I'm pretty sure the game was fully bugged though because I was standing in front of the signals and trying to do the "Contact Dispatcher" option, but wasn't getting the "No track available" or "Proceed at restricted speed" messages. So I decided to pull in and naturally, got a SPAD.

    Ok, that sounds pretty exciting (and unexpected). Just curious- have you tried this scenario more than once, and does this happen every time you run it? Finally, I’m assuming this prevented you from completing the scenario?

    Yeah I previously completed this scenario without any problems.

    That's actually pretty fun, lol. Though it's a shame that the dispatcher bugged out afterwards.

    That is interesting. Sounds like this is the first and only time you’ve run into this issue...how many times have you actually played and completed this scenario? I dug up the youtube video below... this guy had no issues. Very strange.

    This would've been the 2nd time. First time was with absolutely no issues, earning a gold medal in the process too. The only thing I can think of to make it do this was that I was kind of taking my sweet time, taking screenshots in between whereas the first time I did everything promptly.
