Hello. This is a very nice guide and I appreciate that this exists. I want my player train in my timetable scenario to depart after picking up passengers. After previewing the time feature in the editor, my train departs right away. I set the departure time 4 minutes after the game starts. Why is the train moving right away in the first second I preview it?

It does work but is a pain to set up due to google changing

@SpacialKatana I play in train simulator 2017 and I can't place the signals, when i put down one i don't get any marker to put on the tracks, it only spawn another signal and if I place this new signal on the ground it automatically delete the old signal.
pls answer cause I'm going crazy, sorry for my poop english.

@spacialkatana i need to practice making signals but im having too much trouble placing tracks, is there a way for you to make a route with no signals that i can clone and edit for practice?

@Thomas5020 Bottom right - Press the play arrow, then you can press escape and do whatever you wish from the pause menu. World Editor takes you back to editing the route.

I probably sound really stupid, but after watching these I can make things, but I haven't figured out where the save and exit button is :P Can somebody tell me?
