I think the text shown in the sim is a bit confusing (Perhaps a bug?). To set a route from Newhaven Harbour to Seaford you'll have to lower the Beach Road crossing, and then "release" the route/crossing with the REL button. It will then let you set a route

Firstly

I have tried to change the message with regards to the NH 18 points being locked by another route, because the crossing is part of the conditions to move reverse I am unable to change it, however will add a note to the manual to show that you need Beach Road crossing down and the crossing release lever operated.

Secondly

Talking of the manual, has your train from fulfilled the requirements as listed under the panel overview for Newhaven Harbour for the route to set?

You have to get a red before you can get any other colour
