    At the very end of this long Mission you are supposed to decouple the 37 coaches and drive the two locos back to a point "behind the Sand patch junction". This point is just past a Red Signal. Crossing the Red Signal causes the scenario to fail.
    Calling for dispatcher does result in no response in both the immersive and the classic Control Mode.
    Just past the Red Signal is another Red Signal and a train standing and waiting there. I waited for 30 Minutes at the Signal to maybe turn Green.

    In conclusion the scenario is not finishable. Frustration After 2hr of 15mph snail Speed.

    I had the same problem and I suspect that there is a bug with saving the game on routes where you have to switch cabs to head off in the other direction (also happened to me on Aachen turnaround)

    Tried both scenario's without saving and lights change automatically

    I had that happen just today, took me a good 10 minutes of wait to get a green once that manifest has gone past me.

    Did you encounter red signals along the way towards Summit, chasing that manifest?

    It happened on "Fully Fueled" and it happened on "Cumberland Auftrag" (sorry my Version is German.) Which is 4th Scenario. Again I loaded a saved game and had to stop at a Red Signal. The Signal did not turn Green and I was not able to Call dispatcher. Usually you get at least a message that you have no clearance but I get nothing. Neither in Immersion nor in Classic Control. Really annoying on long Missions :(

    I've done this scenario twice now only to get a red signal fail st the end (on xbox). So are you saying if we don't save game during this scenario if wont get bugged? If thats the reason I saved both times half way through and thats my problem.

    I had a red signal at the start of the game, held for around 5 minutes , then once the manifest cleared it was yellow all the way to the summit. (Although I did stall half way there and took me about 15 mins to get going again).
    Then I arrived at the stop point, went to the rear two locomotives and uncoupled them, and took them back to the crossover point, and then the signal changed to allow me to proceed into the siding

    That's what I think is the problem. If you save it, quit and come back it's bugged, if you finish it in one go, it works OK. That's how it was for me. I hope DTG Jamie can relate this to the team, so they can fix this issue. You can't expect people in this day and age to be able to invest 2,5 hrs in one go.

    I finished Fully Fuelled with no problems (PS4pro). Just an idea, if you take too long, the other trains on the route catch up and the dispatcher get´s confused.

    I finished this without issues as well. The biggest problem is the game doesn't tell you how to properly configure the locomotives for remote operation.

    Actually caught the manifest 2 times, forcing me to stop at red signals, before I reached the summit.

    So you can move from the start? My train is stuck at beginning. I do everything to get the train ready and it moves for like 3 seconds and then won’t move after that. Can someone help me?
