Hope you enjoy
Glad you enjoyed it…. seems strange that it routed you into 11 at Edinburgh yet for me everytime into 19.
I was experiencing the highlighted problem above on Part 4B where it routed me in to Platform 11 and not 19 at Waverley. I deleted the scenario and reinstalled from a fresh download to no avail.
I have now managed to complete the scenario by making a tweak to my own copy of it utilising the TS Tools software. What I did was start the scenario as it is and save it around 10 miles outside of Edinburgh. I then went in to the TS tools software, deleted the consist 2Y40 which forms the Berwick Service. This on approach to Edinburgh when the scenario is restarted from the save will then set signal E425 to red with the points on the Edinburgh bound track set to begin routing the service in to Platform 19. I then restarted the scenario from my save point at 10 miles out. The consist for 2Y40 still appears in Platform 1 and departs as normal. However, this time once it has cleared the crossover required to enter Platform 19, the points set correctly and signal E425 changes to green allowing the set to enter the station correctly in to Platform 19.
A thoroughly enjoyable 8 part scenario. Thank you. My only hiccup was getting in to P19 at Waverley in part 4b.
Enjoying the scenarios very much, I wondered if anyone else has had this problem : Part 4b Approaching Waverley signal E425 showing green, player train taken not to P19 but through Waverley south loop and P11. Luckily I had saved shortly before Ed, tried again, signal E425 green, player train routed correctly but straight in to path of 2Y40 to Berwick. Tried again and this time as the first taken via Waverley south loop and P11.
