I note you have to cross tracks when sending trains to earle sidings or incoming from wharf way have to cross to get towards great jn for tunstead. You cannot set route via p45 straight along from chinley. I know p45 is for fuel depot and ss but their are signals next to the up dn sidings ie the up line which I thought you could use to go straight to tunstead and avoid blockages when cemex run rounds and crew changes at great jn. Am I missing something? Great sim again, as Lougborough where I live is only an hour or so away. I really like the freight shunt moves!

No, you can't run wrong-road between Peak Forest and Great Rocks Jn. Signal GR6 at Great Rocks is just used for engines reversing when running from Buxton to Tunstead or vice versa. You can send a train via the Through Siding in either direction but I wouldn't recommend sending a Down train through there as the movement is only controlled by shunt signals.

No, you can't run wrong line from Chinley South to Peak Forest, either. There's about 4 miles between the two locations, and the lines aren't signalled for bi-directional running.
