Trains not entering sidings via waypoint, getting lost

Post by ColonelThunderbird » 18 Oct 2019 15:31

I use this sort of station fairly regularly on my network: ... sp=sharing

I am, however, noticing that trains can sometimes behave very strangely if ordered to go to the sidings, especially if there are multiples (in this example, I've used a simple 4-platform station but in some cases I go to 6 or 8 with the same 2 major lines through and then sidings in each direction.

A train will be routed via the waypoint, then the station (e.g. Gretown Waypoint --> Gretown Valley) but sometimes it will instead decide to take the major tracks THROUGH the station and then complain that it is lost.

Anyone know why?

Does the train take the siding if it is the only route available (so only track to the siding)? Because the first thing I think about, is missing overhead wiring on the siding for an electric train, which would force the train to continue on the straight track.
