I'm a bit embarrassed to admit it, but I'm having some trouble with NEO WO2. I made it to Simonville without problem. Upon arriving in Simonville, I receive a pop-upmessage telling me that once past the reverse point, I should reverse into Simonville 2a and drop off part of the consist. I'm a bit confused about this. I did drop cars 0-22 through 0-15. I thought that I should then pull forward, clear the switch and reverse into Simonville 2b where I would drop 0-2 through 0-14. I did this, saved the game and checked the work list to see that I not completed any of the assigned moves. I realized that things were not goinf correctly when I received no pop-up messages during any of these movements.

Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.

You should receive a pop-up when you leave O-15 to O-22 on Simonville Siding 2a, since you didn't get a pop-up it sounds like you might not have positioned the consist properly on the siding. You will also only get the pop-up once you decouple the equipment from the train. My guess is maybe you didn't spot the train far enough back.

Brian's right - and you will nearly always get a message telling you when to make the drop. Don't drop them too early.

I'm having the same problem. I tried to back up as far as it would go, but to no use. I still can't get it to work ok.

Not sure what you mean by red on the reverse. Can you explain further and give a location. Also if you have red did you try using the tab key to get past?

At Simonville, I receive a message telling me that when I past the reverse point, I should reverse into Simonville 2a.
So I do this get past the reverse point stop and change to reverse and a red light shows up. I did tab to try to get clearance many times and was denied each time, after 20+ minutes I figured it was bad timing on my arrival. So i say to myself lets just backup maybe it is a glitch and the next thing I get is Senario over due to running a red or something in that order.

No big deal am going to re do it and see what happens this time.
