I recently despatched 5K05 from platform 6 and 5B05 is left in the platform awaiting the arrival of 1T16 which has yet to enter the sim at Blackford.
For some reason 5B05 isn’t occupying the track circuit at the buffer end of the platform and this looks odd to me. 1T16 is 71m long and has to join 5B05 but I doubt that it will fit in the platform therefore the joined train will overhang the points.
Is there something that I can do earlier in the sim to rectify this situation, or is it more complicated than that?
Timetable is 15-10-09 (04:45)

Not sure , but if memory serves correctly, if the Overlength button is lit, you give permission for 1T16 to pass the red signal. Sorry i cannot check as i am running a different timetable, and it does not recognise the head codes. Save the Sim you can always go back..

Yes. Thought of saving the sim just before setting the route into P6 so, unless someone can offer any further advice, this is my course of action.
I'll let you know what the outcome is :)

Thanks

Simple way to fix: go into F2 of the waiting train, signalling options and press "shunt forward". That will make the train move to the end of the platform.

Yes that has worked, but why on earth didn't I consider this??
At some point 5B05 changed direction from Down to Up so I was too late to do this move. Reversing it when it was facing Up didn't work, I had problems which I won't go into at this point.

Thanks

You can abandon its timetable, shunt it to the right place and then reinstate it.

I didn't consider this move either. Thanks. I obviously had another brain malfunction :\
