1A81 tries to pull into platform 3 on Newbury in the default TT (i.e. the 2007 one shipped with the sim). This doesn't work so well as it's an up train, which means it either has to reverse on the main altogether, or pull through platform 2 to get to somewhere to reverse at (either back onto the main, or reversing in the goods yard). Is there any reason at all for it to use platform 3 instead of 2?

Alternatively, it could just be a typo, 2 would seem the most logical choice of platform for a 1Axx service

'Tis why I posted this, I was suspecting it to be a typo as well...but wanted to confirm that.

Remember also that some TT writers choose to write their TTs exactly as per the actual WTT, which may itself have contained errors. I can't speak for this particular TT, but I've noticed conflicts in other TTs for this reason.

Following up on this, it turns out that this must be a typo as 5K13/2K13 is tabled to use platform 3 from 7:36 to 7:48 while 1A81 uses it from 7:40 to 7:42. I doubt the real WTT works this way...(unless they really like stuffing trains into platforms at Newbury :P)
