What is the speed limit past a dead signal?

I got permission to pass it and went on down the track, had to pause the trip and when I looked at the trip report it said I exceeded the speed limit of 15mph for a minute.

That's it. 15 until the next signal.
Good trip,

Thank's,

I went back to a saved location just prior to that point and reran it.

For a "Priority" train, I'm sure getting a lot of red signals. I'm now at 3:31 hrs. and I'm stopped at another red.

No wonder this trip is 5 hrs long.

OK,

I'm now at 3 hr 49 min and I'm still stuck at a red signal.

I have a set of tracks to my left that merge into mine at the signal and on the track monitor I have a "right" arrow ahead past the signal for me.

Anyone have any idea how long the wait should be?

I've tried backing up slightly and then moving back up to the signal. No help.

I installed Seattle and ran an activity, but I ran NESE-114-01 - not 1a. I need to rerun.

I'm stopped at mile # 1706.0, I should have put that in the prior post.

I have just now run the activity.

This is a hazmat activity. There should be a separator car, a buffer car, between the locomotive and the train. Maybe the first tanker is empty and clean. The speed limit should be cautious, such as 40 MPH. You covered about 100 miles in 3.5 hours - an average speed of 32 MPH. I did not move so fast.

The activity runs the entire length of the route to MM 1647. The listed time is 5 hours and 10 minutes. I did not see any red signal in front of me the entire length.

Your train can get many red signals if it is on the wrong path. Did you move any switch?

There was a train waiting to get onto my single track. It proceeded behind me after I passed. Maybe you could try approaching this double track at very low speed, so the other train can get into the siding before you get there.

Thank's, I tried to stay at least 5-8mph below the posted limit.

I'll try approaching it slower.

I kept it below 40 MPH. If there was a yellow or red, I would have slowed a bit more.
