The manual doesn't explicitly state this so, I thought I would ask.

When you send the empties to platform eleven at the start of the day, do you have to have the frame released and the branch points over before signalling the train into the yard?

Short answer: no.
When you signal the train into the yard, you actually only signal up to the stop board in the yard. Only once it has been ascertained the points are set and the line is clear can the train proceed onto the branch.

Hope this helps,
Jamie.

Jamie,

Have you managed to get it to work without setting the frame before letting the train into the yard, because I am unable to no matter what I try.

I have had the train disappear off the sim completely (although I suspect I pulled the wrong points to cause that), drop up to the stop blocks and then refuse to reverse with the train list saying that the train no longer exists when I try and order a reverse, and reverse, stand at WJ2002 signal and then refuse to reverse for the same reason.

If I set the frame before the train enters the yard then the train goes off down the branch correctly.
