    Thought i'd mention a few little issues i have with the route whist playing it - may have been mentioned?

    • First one is a immersion issue/signal issue within the scenario Red Bank Rotation. After requesting permission to pass the signal at danger - shouldn't there be a call-on aspect/shunt to indicate that we have permission to pass the signal at danger?!

    The pop up sadly doesn't cut it from a realism standpoint especially when you play with minimal HUD and rely on the aspects just as you would in real life.


    • Missing/lack of speed boards/speed warnings trackside? or AWS?

    • Class 45 or traction in general on the route lack working headlights that make driving at night impossible.

    Let's hope these issues are sorted possibly - i appreciate it.

    From a real life standpoint the route is real , There was no AWS back then , also the lights do work however headlights were never designed to act like car headlights and see ahead of you , on trains a driver must sign a route, so they know where every signal , crossing ect is it wasn't until recently where headlights have been upgraded to LED's where they light up the track ahead , headlights have always been for pway staff to see a train at night not for the driver to see the track , same applies with the speed signs , they arnt really needed at all as a driver must sign a route and know where speed changes are ect so if your going for realism in the game then its almost spot on

    I have two suspected signal bugs:
    • The distant signal eastbound before Standedge tunnel erroneously shows a clear aspect when the main signal right before the tunnel entrance shows red.
    • The distant signal eastbound approximately 0.5 miles from Dewsbury erroneously shows a yellow aspect when the main signal at the beginning of Dewsbury platform is clear.
    Can anybody confirm?

    If you could get a "calling on" aspect, you wouldn't have needed to ask permission to pass the signal eh.

    The rest of your issues have been explained very well by the others.
