Can I confirm that these are the 'actual' locations for the entry points?

Down Bordesley- Small Heath Jn.
Down Derby- Water Orton
Down Stour- Coventry
Up Camp Hill- Kings Norton
Up Gloucester- Kings Norton
Up Grand Junction- Bescot Stadium
Up Stour- Wolverhampton
Up Stourbridge- Rowley Regis
Up Sutton- Four Oaks

Also, for trains leaving on the Camp Hill lines, is the last location Bordesley Jn, with no difference between trains heading towards Kings Norton and Tyseley?

As far as I remember from writing the default timetable, those are all correct except one:

Up Camp Hill- Kings Norton

This should be Lifford East Junction.

That's correct, when the sim is not chained trains will drop off at Bordesley Junction regardless.

And to take this a bit further, would it be possible for devs to make sure this information is made clear when sims are released, e.g. by a list in the relevant Wiki manual? A number of recent sims have used "Up/Down xxx" entry points, and the consistent way I've found to check what location actually corresponds to them is by checking through the default timetable and hoping my guess is right - as Steamer has shown, that doesn't always work!
