Sorry, another question!

I have just loaded a saved game (a continuation from last night) and I had forgotten that I already had a train sitting at Clapham Junction Platform 2. I requested a slot from Signal VC682 towards Latchmere Reversible for a second train. The slot was accepted and I routed the second train onto the line. It is now sitting in the vicinity of signal W149 waiting for the platform to empty; the train already in the platform is, at the same time, awaiting right-away. It seems I have a standoff! Obviously I should’ve paid more attention to what was going on, but I wanted to ask if it is correct for the slot to be given when a train is already sitting in the platform?

Despite what it might look like, I am thoroughly enjoying this simulation!

During tonight's host we had the same thing happen, and echo Gwasanaethau's query as to is this the right practice for teh slot seeing as the slot effectively slots to a siding in the 2000s layout.

Platform 2 is not the only place trains can access from the Latchmere Reversible. Trains can travel into Clapham Yard or through Clapham Junction towards Putney.

You don't want the slot-granting-ability to be linked to having a train in platform 2, otherwise you wouldn't be able to run a through train whilst a train were in the platform.

A case of "look before you leap". Clicking on "Last Sent" should indicate whether a train is still in platform 2 or not.
