Can't do this scenario at all. I get my train hooked up to the broken down engine at the station. Then the lights ahead of me just stay on red. A train initially sets off next to me, and crosses my track, so I wait, hoping for the lights to change, but they don't. And if you bring up the map of the tracks, all the lights are on red around me, yet this doesn't stop other trains coming and going on various tracks, straight through red lights.
