I bought Marylebone this week in the sale, and have been quite enjoying it. I have also tried playing with the timetable editor for the first time in any sim (I was put off by the seeming complexity before), and have managed to fit a steam charter in!

However I've come up against a few niggles:

- There doesn't seem to be a timetable location for ME667 at Princes Risborough so I can't put a train into the south sidings.
- Neither the Thame Branch nor the south sidings seem to be entry locations, which would be handy for simulating the Chinnor & Princes Risborough's current usage. I can kind of understand the lack of entry point for the branch as the C&PRR weren't connected to it in 2015/16, but the south sidings would have made sense as an entry point. Both would be good for simulating their current use in 2019.
- View position '7' seems too far to the left. It doesn't overlap at all with '8' and shows too much to the north. I think it should centre halfway between Saunderton and Gerrard's Cross.

Otherwise, good fun, though I think I need to ramp up the failures.

Use view '3' and scroll down a bit. Unfortunately, the height and width of the layout means it's not possible to get a good focus on every part of the simulation. If you hadn't seen already, views 1-5 focus on Aylesbury and the LUL section, 6-0 focus on the lower section.

I noticed the split between 1-5 and 6-0, and I'm playing without LUL so the latter are more useful at the moment. It's not the vertical positioning that's off, just the horizontal. Views 6,8,9 and 0 are all spaced out nicely with just a little overlap, but 7 is way over to the left of where you'd expect it to be. I don't see any reason for 7 to be so far to the left.
