    Exclamation send/dont send on track

    Hi. Hope that one of you guys may help me with tis one!

    I built a terminal station, and the main line at the exits the station in a two track tunnel with a switch point.
    What is happening is , when I leave from a certain track of the station, after passing the last switch and right before entereing the tunnel, the simulation crashes with the infamous send/ don/t send.

    Now in the layout of the station I am mainly using lots of DT ( I am a DT lover ) and point 3 switches (including y).
    I have tried a number of things that did not solve the problem:
    1- there are no blue poles in the itinerary in question
    2- substituting dynamic track for a track shape in the itinerary
    3- testing with a non MSTS BIN compatible cab (just to be sure it was not a BIN bug or a cab bug)

    Stranger yet: if I enter the station comming from the tunnel, ie, in the oposite direction, no error occurs. But if I reverse the engine and start going towards the tunel, then it crashes.
    I have been carefull to always put a track shape or DT betwwen ever switch point... including in the tunnel...
    I am at a loss here to resolve this...
    Any insights, anyone?

    Is there anywhere along the train's path where a turnout ends to nowhere (no track added to either the deverging or straight path)? To help localize the issue, have you tried using a non-bin version of MSTS?

    Without looking closely at that location in the RE it is difficult to diagnose what the problem could be.

    Any change of you taking a close-up screenshot of it ?

    In addition to what Marc asks:

    - Any orphan red poles at the end of track somewhere (might even be at a distance, e.g. at the far end of your route)?

    - Any loops or circles in the track layout (can also be 'hidden' i.e. a loop formed over a longer stretch of the route) that are not yet signalled properly?

    - Any signals that are not linked properly or that are faulty, which could be activated at the moment when you go towards that switch in question?

    Hope that helps a bit... Cheers

    It was an orphan red pole.
    It was lost in another nearby station....

    thank you all for all your insights and opinions.

    Best regards!
