Thanks again Peter for refreshing this. If I can ask one question I asked earlier again, do the Buffer Stops at Waterloo have a location identifier I can use for Seeding Trains? As I understand it if I seed the train at the Platform Starter, it will want to depart immediately irrespective of the booked Platform Stop at Waterloo?
Is that understanding from experience as it works OK for me.

Peter
From another sim yes. I have not tried this on Waterloo yet, hence the question.

Sorry guys, I am in the business of making people wait!

Peter, In the Wiki, the length of platform 05 is defined as 217m. However a train 197m long will not fit in this current layout.

Any idea?

Platform 5 will only fit a max of 8/455 8/450 5/444 or 8 158/159.

No: I neither wrote the Wiki article nor set the TC lengths in the Sim.

One of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas.

217m is the length given in the Timetable Planning Rules, but it would appear that this differs from reality.

I've checked the simulation TC lengths, platform 5 is actually 195m. Also, Platform 17 was given as 268m, TCs are 255m. Wiki updated accordingly.

The rest of the lengths are slightly pessimistic compared to the TC lengths. This is only by a few meters, probably because not all of the TC covers usable platform, so I've left it as-is. I don't know how close this is to reality, however.
