Hi all!
I’m playing the October 15, 2009 timetable, version 4-7. Using the instructions here, I have gotten 6M22 up into a sensible place for the round round to occur. But now I’ve run into another problem: where exactly is the locomotive supposed to go? Attached is a diagram of what seems to me to be the obvious thing to do, to keep everything nice and out of the way of the mainline, except that the part of the diagram drawn in red isn’t a valid route. What is the proper way to do this? Is this route intentionally missing because it’s also not available in real life? Am I supposed to just talk the locomotive past the red signal, or do I have to (rather pointlessly, as far as I can see) take it all the way across the mainlines into Cricklewood platform or the dep/rec line and then back again? In the latter case, is there any convention in terms of which location is used? It seems that Cricklewood platforms 1 (on the up slow) and 2 (on the down slow) and the dep/rec line all work, in the sense that there are routes to them and back again.

Thanks!

Trains run round on the RRL (run round line) or DH normally using the headhunt.

The train is stopped in the wrong place.

Oh, I see! I was going by JamesN’s screenshot in the other thread which showed things starting out as I show here. I had not understood that the whole train was supposed to occupy the RRL, rather than just the engine.

OK, so it looks like the following timetable changes need to be made:
* For 6M22, replace “Signal WH533/535/551” with “West Hampstead Thameslink, platform DH” keeping the activities the same.
* For 0M22-R, replace its timetable with the following:
1. West Hampstead Thameslink, platform DH
2. Signal WH529
3. West Hampstead Thameslink, platform RRL, passing
4. Signal WH562
5. West Hampstead Thameslink, platform DH, join 6M22

This seems to do exactly what you described now, and with these changes, both TTs validate, too—and not even any manual reversals needed. Thanks for the help!
