I've reloaded my Ordsall Chord 2020 TT into the latest version of the sim with no issues which I'm pleased to report first of all.

However in the 2018-20 there still appear to be a few issues I've found, though none of them are job-stoppers! :

- MP703 is still being held at red until a train approaches
- Signal MP516R is missing
- MP518's banner repeater is sited on the up end of Clifton station
- The auto button for the re-located MP512 is inoperative
- MP/MC456 at Deansgate should have a BR as well (it's located on the same gantry as the MP/MC458 BR)

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Thanks; a few of these have already been picked up, and I've added notes/ re-opened tickets for the rest.

Also, I've seen this before but never with enough detail to confirm it being an issue - but in my 2020 TT (2018-2020 era), 5P13 is booked to wait at Oxford Road. Initially I signalled it to MC418 so it would fit in the platform and allow another service round it in P4. When that service was away, I set the route for 5P13 only for it to draw forward and only then wait time blocking the up end of the station.

The train is 130m long so should fit, albeit quite tightly, and realistically for any call there a driver would leave the back end hanging off to be able to see the platform signal (and at Northern our ASDO only supports locking out doors from the back which I would assume is the same for the TPE fleets). Additionally, trains in the full length of P3 subsequently won't operate TRTS when this happens.


EDIT 25/9 - just to add that when the train was stopped at MC418, it did fit in the platform according to track circuits (and I could run things round); it just didn't recognise the stopping position.
