Steps to reproduce (Refunds)

1. Load the demo game from pak128.Britain-Ex.
2. Open the depot at (490,8).
3. Open the Locomotives tab and click on the SR Bulleid/Raworth CC.
4. Refund the locomotive.

Expected results (Refunds)

You have an empty or new convoy and can Append any vehicle to it.

Actual results (Refunds)

The Locomotive tab is empty. All vehicles in other tabs have a red status indicator because none of them can be Appended to the convoy.

2. Open the depot at (490,8).
3. Open the Locomotives tab and click on the SR Bulleid/Raworth CC.
(Optional: Switch to the Passenger carriages tab. Note the lack of suitable passenger carriages.)
4. Open the Convoy List at the top and select New convoy.

Steps to reproduce (Carriages)

1. Load the demo game from pak128.Britain-Ex.
2. Open the depot at (490,8).
3. Open the Locomotives tab and click on the SR Bulleid/Raworth CC.
4. Switch to the Passenger carriages tab. There are no suitable carriages for this convoy.

Expected results (Carriages)

Passenger carriages suitable for this convoy can be Appended.

Actual results (Carriages)

All vehicles in the Passenger Carriages tab have a red status indicator because none of them can be Appended to the convoy.


Workarounds
1. Close the depot window and open it again.
2. Switch to Insert mode and Insert a front-of-convoy vehicle or a first Passenger Carriage, then switch back to Append mode and Append the remaining vehicles.
3. Click the Show all option on and then off again.

All of these are confusing for new players.

Comments
It seems very likely that this is a single bug that can be reproduced in three ways, hence one post.
