    Just started to run an activity, leaving the Helena station. Great looking route so far. But has anyone else noted a lack of grade-crossing signs?

      Could be a quiet zone.

        Jammed up at MM37 "Horse Power Hour Train"

        QC problem here when two trains meet and the player train is too long on the siding to let the other pass. To the editor I go.

          Yeah, I thought of that, but assumed there would be a sign anyway ("W" with a line through it, or something).

            What location is that siding?

              Yes, Helena is a quiet zone. There are no signs shown in the MRL timetables for a "do not sound horn" whistlepost, so I do not believe they have them from what I have seen... The quiet zone was enacted just a few years ago, so it does not show up in earlier timetables.

              That siding with no-fitter happening is Avon. I will look into why that is happening today, that did not happen during our testing. Donald, could you send me an IM with your OR log file attached? Just want to confirm what all of your game settings are.

                I have made is through that location on the same activity using the recommended settings in the Mullan Pass manual with no issues but I wanna say that I did not have a meet there.

                    The first 3 signals from the beginning.

                    Turns out its a ORTS MG bug as older none MG versions signals work properly.

                      I also noticed that the unit number doesn't match up on unit #5228. Rear of unit is numbered 4160

                        As far as the "quiet zone" is concerned - if the timetable lists certain crossings as such then there may not be whistle posts to indicate a "quiet zone". A good majority of Madison's crossings on the WSOR are "quiet zones" but very few have whistle posts at all due to their listing in the timetable.

                          This is found in BNSF timetables, and may shed light on the whistle post question:

                          GCOR Rule 5.8.2—Within the State of Montana, the locomotive whistle is to be sounded at all public crossings marked with whistle posts, and otherwise in compliance with GCOR rule 5.8.2.
                          Locomotive whistles should be sounded at only those private crossings marked with whistle posts and in the other circumstances described in GCOR Rule 5.8.2.
                          Presumably, then, quiet crossing = no whistle post

                              Mind you I'm not being critical or complaining...but we all have to learn that with the OR log documenting everything...it is quite easy whenever someone creates something for OR to run it in the sim and look for log warnings or errors...and then address them. Just part of the learning curve. (apologies, re-reading this...sounds a bit pompous...but I still think it is good practice )

                                There is a typo somewhere. There is no space between a and d.
