Chrisrail for your reference I asked a question about seeding in Bedwyn Siding in another thread, and I was told the train needs to have its seeding gap reduced to avoid truncation: https://www.SimSig.co.uk/Forum/ThreadView/53047

There seems to be an issue with the 'mutually exclusive' rules for 6V46/6X46. I got a delay message for 6V46/H41126 but no train entered at all and all three got marked as entered. Save attached from shortly after.

I can't see what is wrong with your TT however. It might help to use a decision instead.

Edit: even if I mark 6V46/H41126 (the one that generated a delay message) as unentered, the sim automatically marks it as entered again (!).

I have a few bugs to fix and will extend the siding - give it a week to see if anything else comes up.

It looks like 3K01 fails to enter in the updated Westbury 4.4. Snapshot attached 6 minutes after due time - train is listed as 0 delay, 'enter on time' ticked.

Unticking 'special timing pattern' and 'enter on time' makes it enter.

“Special Timing Pattern” is an ARS thing, not a train. If that is ticked it will not enter

I mean it's ticked in the train's TT. I haven't verified which one of the two checkboxes actually prevents it from entering. But it sounds like a train shouldn't have special timing pattern ticked on a non-ARS sim.

I also see 7O12 and 7O52 with an identical timetable; should there be a decision as to which of the two will enter?

Edit: I mean the second part of either train which enters from Down Yard 7-12.

Have they got rules to enter x minutes after the first part exits instead of a decision?

Yes, they have. In that case the first parts should have a decision to determine which one enters.

A special timing pattern is not a train.

If it is ticked it will not enter.

Thanks for explaining it again, I was confused by a 'train' that is not a train. I've just looked it up and it now makes sense to me that 3K01 didn't enter.

Does 7V12 in Westbury DR need a loco run-round to get to Merehead? Currently it has none and just leaves in the other direction.

Also, it became apparent in the Westbury 4.4 thread that 5F91 and 5C12 hit the buffers in the Down Trowbridge siding because the timetable says Up Trowbridge Siding, which can't be reached from the platforms. I initially suspected a sim bug hence I reported it there.

7C76 is too long for the Salisbury spur.

for the benefit of someone searching for a solution replace Salisbury spur with Westbury South Jn (Rev)

Is there going to be an updated timetable in which the problems mentioned above are fixed?
I could just play it anyway as others have done but was just wondering...

I will be going through it when I have time. And also if I can source the original data which I fear is on a laptop which died after having an incident with a Glass of Wine.

I've read somewhere that it's possible to make a laptop run on wine? I must be mistaken

The software package called Wine indeed hasn't caused me any serious harm so far even though I'm a regular user of it. But in this case with liquid wine I'd suggest taking the harddisk out of the laptop to see whether the data can be salvaged on another computer.

... or maybe use a cheap USB drive caddy - just in case the drive really is very faulty and might damage the PC supply. Also saves taking apart the new host.

After some jiggery Pokery I have managed to retrieve 60% of the original data. Albert & 9pN1SEAp are you willing to run through the revamp as a test. If so please PM me with your email adresses.
A few train lengths have been changed but at least one does not fit in the loops so some Regulation is required.
I have tested through till about 08:00 at the moment.
