Hi, was running WA on a chain last night and noticed an anomaly when we tried to shunt a train into the DGL at Stansted Mountfitchet, according to the wiki the loop length is 240m yet when we tried to shunt a 8-car 379 (160m) into the loop it would not fit, now I get the feeling this is so it doesn't foul the points into the engineers siding, but if you allow a train to pass the points (which are GF operated and has no signals protecting the jnc) the loop should easily accommodate a train of 400m+. So I was just querying whether the loop length stated on the wiki is correct or not, because judging by official track diagrams and google maps measurement the loop is closer to 450m not 240m.

I hope I got that across alright,
