Track is not unreserverd in some circumstances
« on: July 11, 2016, 08:29:09 PM »
Hi James, one more bug spotted: look at the server game and watch the train running on the double tracked line. Sometimes, when it leaves the station, it "forgets" to unreserve, and about half of platform is left reserved until the train makes the round trip. If it has to choose another platform, then it departs in drive by sight. May be it is related to the choose signal bugs that you recently fixed, but I thought it is worth its own report.

This is a rather odd problem: it seems to be caused by the train thinking that it needs to reverse at this station. It is fixed, apparently permanently, by opening and closing its schedule window. I will have to assume that this is a legacy of a now fixed problem unless someone can demonstrate it arising afresh somewhere.

Have you tried opening and closing the train's schedule window? If it starts to do this again after this has been done, it will be very useful to know the exact conditions in which this begins to occur.

I did open the schedule window. No waypoint was marked as reversal point. I'll try to find when it happens.
