Feather River Route Q
Author: cct24

1) on the NCE helper...how do you get the red signal to change when leaving Keddie to tie on to the train?

2) In pictures below in the rich bar thread, there are newer WP equipment...where can I find that?

Thanks

The signal will not turn since the other train is ahead. You can get permission to pass by hitting the "Tab" key.

The engines in the thread below I believe are payware. There is lots of WP equipment for free at train-sim.com.

On the PGE Cable Delivery, how do you get past the signal at the North end of Oroville Yard.
Every time I try this one I end up stuck at a Red on the siding with the Westbound CZ looking at a Red on the main.

This one is next on my to do list, Have you tried the "tab" key?

It's been a while, but IIRC it is a timing issue. If you get up to the signal too soon you wind up with a "Mexican Standoff" with the CZ. Try taking a little more time getting to the signal. You should see the light power go by, followed by the CZ shortly after.

The light power goes by, and stops at the south end of the yard giving the CZ a red signal at the north end.
I even tried not leaving the caboose track until the light power goes past the signal at the north end, no luck.

I guess this yet another Train Sim mystery.

The 3rd party developers continue to do amazing things with MSTS. Unfortunately the same old bugs keep rearing their ugly heads.

I was really looking forward to a new version.

Not sure it is a bug gentlemen. I followed the first suggestion, took my sweet time getting to the signal. The light power set showed up and passed and a few minutes later the Zephyr passed and I was able to complete the job.
