Entry points (and Bradwell Esso is one, it has no 'buffer stop' symbol) should not be put in the location list, they go in the first tab only. In a timetable location list 'Bradwell Esso' is only valid as an exit location.

Internally you can think of this as there are two 'Bradwell Esso' locales, one an entry (only) and one an exit (only). That is why there is no path from Bradwell Esso ( = the exit) to anywhere, but there is a path *from* Longport *to* Bradwell Esso (the exit).

HST125 mentions having to tick the Berth option in the inbound working, so maybe the analyzer doesn't consider Bradwell Esso an exit point?

This is what I was referring too. It seems Bradwell Esso isn't an exit point. so when you validate the timetable it says terminates without a next working. So when you add the next working eg 6K39 it throws an invalid timetable and location issue. But if you berth the train at Bradwell Esso it validates and the warning goes.

Just tested.
Loader: SimSig Loader version 5.16.1; Sim: Simulation Staffordshire; data version 1.2

Bradwell Esso is an exit, the train leaves the sim.

What you are seeing is an analyser error which can be covered up by ticking 'berths here', but bear in mind that is all 'berths here' does - it pacifies the analyser - it does not alter train behaviour.

[Edit - was a duplicate and Mantis reports as fixed in 1.3]

As Bill says, it the location itself is an exit. It just hasn't been flagged as such to the TT analyser, hence the warning, which can be ignored.
