I have noticed when setting a route from 244 to 240, that 244 appears to change to a proceed aspect a little bit before the points are fully over - the points keep flashing for a second or two after the signal clears (to YY, naturally).

Thanks for noting this. It's a known issue relating to the way points operate in sequence for route 244 to 240. A ticket is already open for its fixing.

Not sure if the ticket covers this, but it’s not just a matter of the order in which things appear to happen, it’s actually a wrong-side failure. If you fail reverse detection on points 602 and call route 244 to 240, 244 will clear, and remain clear, despite the points never proving at all. A train can then be brought up to 244, in which case it will pass it without complaint and proceed to 238 (assuming points are stuck normal, e.g. hand cranked), despite the route appearing to be set to 240.
