    I think I’ve reached this Red now. 4.2 miles from Oakville yard?

    That's the one, I wouldn't even mind a 25 minute wait if there was just some sort of feedback from the game when contacting the controller other than "Denied: No route available"

    WOW, I am SO glad I looked through these forums. I was stopped at that light and was ready 2 ditch the journey until I read this. I agree there needs 2 b some message in the simulation just to make u aware of what is happening.

    Whilst a 25 min wait at a signal is perfectly realistic, it's not exactly conducive to enjoyable gameplay. Red signals add interest to a scenario, as the player has to drive to restrictive aspects on approach as well as bring the train to a stand and start it again; A two or three minute wait should be the most, any longer and the player will get bored and start to question the integrity of the game.

    Mine lasted less than 10 minutes. I got out of the train and walked around. :)

    Completely agree. Realistic or not, it's borderline disrespectful of a player's time to include 25 minutes of red light waiting on a route with no feedback. Sure you can have a walk about, but to not even have a message to indicate how long that wait might be is poor.

    According to the CROR, if it has a "R" plate you can pass it at restricted speed. Problem is you flunk the scenario. I flagged this to DTG. This has to be fixed so it's inline.

    25 minutes? I've heard worse stories in real life, one of them being a crew moved a train all of about 10ft and 12 hours later, being relieved by another crew.
