Couple of minors:

Running in Developer mode, i've found that all the trains entering the sim do so with a 1 minute delay added.

Also, one specific train type in my timetable did not apply an 'initial power' setting to timetables, all the others did. Who did wrong?

I've realised that the initial power problem is probably because I changed the power type from what it was originally.

A couple more -

Some minor locations are missing from the timetable such as Brownhills/Anglesea Sidings, and ground shunt signals.

Also, it is currently impossible to allow a train off the Alrewas single line in the up direction first while a train is waiting at signal AS5. This is because of the way the slot is currently coded. Unfortunately this means that even if two trains are timetabled to pass in this way, the up train has to be delayed as the down train seems to get priority.

Why is the slot set up in this way? If I know a train is booked to wait at AS5, most likely to allow a train to pass in the opposite direction first, I wouldn't want to request a slot for it. IMO the current arrangement is not the best arrangement, and it would be a lot better were there an 'up' slot and 'down' slot, i.e. like on the Lichfield chord; or at least a manual 'down' slot, not an automatic slot.

You can allow one off the single line, but not allow one onto it at the Derby end (well, not that you "allow" it to begin with, but you get my meaning!)

Just from playing with it, it also looks like you would be totally stuffed if you got a TCF in TDY80 (the berth TC at AS5) - there's no way to cancel the auto-granted slot, even after the TCF is fixed, unless you pass a train through to Derby.

Sorry, yes that's what I meant - allowing an up train onto the line while a down train is approaching AS5.
