At Stalybridge, I found the following two routes cannot be set at the same time:
- from P3 to Up Ashton, needs P1020 locked normal
- from Down Ashton to P5, needs P1020 locked reverse

Is this intentional / replicating real life?

Quote from the manual:

"Due to flank protection, it is not possible to route from signals SE7036, SE7038, SE7042 to signal SE7022 with a route set Signal SE7023 to the Platform 5 Buffers."

Would this explain the issue you are having?

In fairness, this has caught a number of people out, especially when testing, and a lot of scratching of the head of can this really be correct.
