Loco needs to detach from the rear to run round as the computer doesn't know the train has reversed in from C233.

A little bit more info into exactly what you are talking about would give those creating the sim/timetable a fighting chance and fixing any bug! For example a train ID, whether it's in the supplied TT or one someone has written since release, the exact sequence of events etc etc.

Supplied 2009v5 timetable. 4K69/71/73 arrive at Welbeck Colliery Jn on the up line and reverse into the run round loops from signal C233. Because the train has reversed the Sim now thinks the loco is on the Welbeck Colliery end and detaches front accordingly. When the light engine(0K69/71/73) is ready to move to the loco siding it can't because the train is in the way.

As the train has reversed into the run round loops the loco is on the rear at the loco siding end despite the Sim thinking its on the front at the Welbeck Colliery end. So the train needs to detach loco from rear. Entry for 4K69 should read;
WELBECK COLLIERY RR 05:59 06:19 DER 0K69 J 0K69
Loco run rounds are good.


I'd forgotten about this one as I cheated and edited it to be the same as the 4K arrivals, however;
4E42 is interesting as it runs past Welbeck on the up line to Thoresby Colliery Jn to run round and then return to Welbeck on the down line. Stops at Welbeck Colliery Jn but has to draw forward so it can reverse onto the up line, this manoeuvre isn't shown in the timetable. It then runs into the run round loop from C233. The loco is on the Welbeck Colliery end but the timetable still shows it detaching front to run round which it can't because the train is in the way and doesn't need to.
Timetable for 4E42 shows;
CLIPSTONE WEST JN
WELBECK COLLIERY JN
WELBECK COLLIERY RR DF 0E42-1 J 0E42-1
WELBECK COLLIERY

But should be;
CLIPSTONE WEST JN
WELBECK COLLIERY JN C332
WELBECK COLLIERY JN C233
WELBECK COLLIERY RR
WELBECK COLLIERY

Incidentally for all the arrivals and departures to/from Welbeck you need to clear signal W7, the first one towards Clipstone from Welbeck Colliery Jn on the up line otherwise the trains won't clear the junction.
