Not sure if this has been noted already - had a search but couldn't find anything.

2P77 arrives on Up at Retford Low Level and immediately becomes 2R35 to go back towards Worksop/Sheffield. Presumably there is a working missing here (an ECS shunt from up line to down line) or it should be going to Retford High Level like 2P51 and its return (I forget the TD) in the morning?

Additionally, I got an exception error as soon as 2P77 became 2R35 and reversed direction from up to down...

Yep, I'd spotted & put on bug board (#5800). I just manually shunted it and reinstated TT.
I can only help one person a day. Today's not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look too good either.

I may well have done that but already had 6E73 trundling past Thrumpton West Jn towards Retford. Opted instead for the creation of an ECS (5R35) from the Up platform to Down platform via Gringley Road Loop. I could have simply abandoned and manually shunted but, hey ho!

Went though this today. Presumably there should be an empty run in between the end of 2P77 (Up, arr 1803) and start of 2R35 (dep 1814) at Redford LL. This empty would run from Redford LL to one of the reverse tracks near Gringley Road LC (either via the Up line or the Up loop before Gringley LC) allowing the train to reverse into the opposite platform at Redford LL to start the new service (2R35) back to Woodhouse Jn via Worksop.

There aren't any signals present in the sim for the train to operate straight off from the Redford LL Up platform to run back towards Worksop station so the above would have to take place (most especially with a through train (6E73) not far behind it on the Up and TT'd to run through Redford LL at 1813).

Nil.

OK - so which location do we use for the reverse above which then gives validated paths?

I can confirm this train (in real life) shunts via Gringley Road Loop, but when I try to add the said shunt move, it says no valid path between Gringley Road Loop and Retford Low Level.

Are you sure? I've just tested Retford Low Level-> Retford Gringley Road Loop-> Retford Low Level and I didn't get any validation issue.

I'd been playing with the Thrumpton location, and looks like that was causing me grief. It does indeed now work, aside from the lack of platform numbers to select (the real NR TT's have platform 3 or 4 at Retford Low Level).
