Hi

Does anyone know the length of Sandy Down Siding?

I have 6B30 in there fouling the points on the Down Slow.

I think that my options are to reduce it's length, or remove it from the sim as it has no more assigned timetabled movements.


Update: I decide to remove it from the sim.

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.

Which way did you have the hand points set?

Assuming they were normal, that siding is 190 metres long. The two signals are 185 metres apart with signal 13 right at the end of the siding.

Blast!
I'd forgotten about that.

I had them set 'Normal' which is for the Loop and the train wouldn't fit being 265 m long. It was meant to go into the sidings.
I've run it again and when set to 'Reverse' it did what it was meant to do.

Sorry about that and thanks
