LocateFeaturesAlongRoutes produces empty table

I've built a pretty simple geoprocessing model that uses the Linear Referencing "Locate Features Along Routes" tool, and the model outputs a table just fine when run within ArcCatalog to get a result for publishing. But when I publish the tool to ArcGIS Server and run it through the rest directory (, the output table just results in having the field names with no data. I'm fairly new to publishing these models, but I've tried this many different ways with the same result. My input route seems to be okay, and I get no errors in any logs. The output code from the model I'm using is below. Any help is appreciated. I'm starting to think this is a bug, but everyone probably thinks that about their issue!
