It appears that it is having an update. Are they removing the carriage sidings?

Already got the majority of the documentation I need to sort a timetable for this blockade as well for Wimbledon. Watch this space.
Sorry guys, I am in the business of making people wait!

Currently in the process of making one myself. Makes it harder that there's no platform allocations for P11-19 its all adhoc.

Regarding the carriage sidings, they are only removing 1, with the remaining one being extended to 10 coaches and having no country end exit.

What information are you using out of interest? I've already got the CWN and the NR Data so have this lined up for release in the next couple of weeks all things being equal...

The track layout at Queenstown Road and Waterloo International has changed since the sim was released. That will make things somewhat more challenging unless I get some updated scheme plans!

Southeastern Route learning videos to/from P21 & 22 may help. Shows new scissors crossover in the P21/22 throat.

Using a base plan sent to me from a friend in Train planning for stock and Real Time Trains for timing. The biggest challenge as geoff said is working around the new point work in place which they are using during the blockade like the new UWF - REV points and the UWL - DWF section of track country side of queenstown road.

Will look forward to any timetable incorporating this possession...

Also, intrigued to know where the Southeastern trains will be coming from to run in to the old International Platforms... Sadly not mine, would be so handy for work

The Paddock Wood line apparently - Dover and Ramsgate. Details here: https://www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/travel-information/live-travel-information/planned-engineering-work?date=2017-09-01

There was a tweet of a Southeastern 375 at Waterloo last week after a clearance/route learning run too: https://mobile.twitter.com/Se_Railway/status/884416321961820161

Looks like a passenger train has hit an engineering train at low speed :(

I like the caption "The trains appears to have hit an engineering wagon" to the photo.

The collision during the possession appears to have been caused by a very alarming wrong-side failure:

RAIB said:
The collision occurred because a set of points were misaligned and directed the passenger train away from its intended route. The misalignment was a consequence of a temporary modification to the points control system which also caused the train driver and signaller to receive indications that the points were correctly aligned.
