I’ve found that when 2 trains are in platform 2 at the same time the second train over hangs the signal and blocks platform 3, is this a bug or a timetable issue?
To get around it I’ve had to shunt the train booked to stable in the platform during the day into the wall siding. Anyone else found this problem on the ordinary 2015 timetable?

Could you confirm which trains please?

The platform there is a bit tight for two units, so trains may need timetabling with exact stopping positions to get them to draw all the way up.

It’s happened from 2S14 which arrives and splits, then each one that goes on top of the remaining part overhang too .

Hmm, we had seen this in testing, but it had been fixed. Would it be possible to attach a savegame please from when this is happening?

Hmm, odd. That train went in without trouble in my run.

Could you double check the 1.ssg file please, it appears to be empty.

Reopened mantis ticket #0022541.

Just managed to reproduce this from my own save, reloaded from earlier, train seems to be stopping about 67m short of the buffers in this case! Seems to be rather inconsistent as to whether it goes all the way to the end.

Sounds like the old issue with brighton P3

With thanks to valenta43002 we've established how to reproduce the issue. It only occurs if you save and reload the simulation after 2S14 has entered.

Fixing it on the other hand is proving more difficult. Watch this space.
