Strange that this has not been mentioned before, but setting the warner from OD12 appears to have no advantage as the reduced overlap still fouls 501 points. :huh:

I'm sure this is prototypical, as the dev in question is beyond reproach ( ), so is this anomaly a leftover from resignalling?

Judging by this photo, it does appear that the reduced overlap should not foul the crossover.

Obviously not that far beyond reproach ;-)

I have just had a look at the scheme plan that the original sim was built on and this shows the reduced overlap being the Croydon side of 501 points. I suspect that the position of the overlap may have changed possibly as part of the East Grinstead works.

Didn't they move those points nearer towards Croydon when they lengthened the platform?

That would explain it. This recent cab view (16:00 onwards) shows that the points are a fair distance from the end of the platform.

1. From 18:42 look left.

2. The signals are not actually flashing, it's the camera the driver is using. Something to do with frames per second, I believe.
