Afternoon,

Whilst drawing up a timetable, I'm trying to reverse a train at Holmes Jn into Westgate Siding (the spur into Booths scrapyard). I can't seem to find anything other than Holmes Jn as an option, no Westgate Siding? I notice it appears as an entry location, but I can't seem to send anything into it.

Am I missing something, or is the ability to reverse at Holmes Jn into the siding not available on the sim at the moment?

Cheers

Your assumption is correct.

Timetabling trains on the Up Main or (UP BARNSLEY) to Westgate Sidings, you need to table them to Attercliffe Sdgs, reverse, then table to Westgate. Locations required are MEADOWHALL P1-3, Wincobank Jn, and BRIGHTSIDE JN.

Have fun!

Sorry but that's wrong Barry. Trains can reverse at Holmes junction to drop into Westgate siding. They don't have to run to Brightside/attercliffe at all. There's a LOS on the down main at holmes specifically for the movement.

raised as 0029947 on mantis to request a location for S213.

Jc92: Give me a break! Read the gentleman's question! He is writing a timetable using the current available locations. The LOS is currently not available!

There's a TT location for Westgate Siding- it's simply 'Westgate Siding'. There's a valid path into it from the Meadowhall direction, but as discussed above a TT location to reverse at Holmes Jn isn't available at present.
