Loving this TT, which was always a favourite in the pre-loader days! I've made it through to 1500 and noted a couple of minor issues on the way.

First of all, 1E28 (enters at Polmont Jn) showing as an HST but with a maximum speed of 70mph. It then has various attaches/joins at Edinburgh so is unlikely to be HST operated. The main issue though is that the joins/divides seem to be the wrong way - the train arrives into 19, sets down, and sets back into 1 (so the loco is facing the up direction) but then divides the engine to the front after being joined by 5G00, which means the loco is theoretically now facing in the down direction. The way it worked seemed to trap all my new locos in the middle of the consist, preventing joins from taking place. I was playing the sim with large delays which meant I had locos appearing from Craigentinny before the train arrived which did confuse matters!

More minor issues include trains not appearing from Rosyth as booked, and a 0Z00 which was booked into Methil whilst Methil was occupied, though this could be a rescue move which would require talking past signals in real life as well.

One other frustration is the 0LXX shunts departing from 17, which have a rule based on the time of entry of the train they are due to join (so they wait 71 minutes from the train entering the sim). It's not really an issue, but it seems it might be better worked basing the rule on them arriving at a location such as Haymarket in case I decide to make the inbound service run express to pull back time.

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

To add to the Rosyth entry issue trains are appearing, but 5G22 still hasn't entered - I believe the issue is that there are two 5G22s booked to run, and a rule stating that they must wait for 5V19 to arrive - 5V19 is a late afternoon ECS from Kirkcaldy into the yard which forms 5G22 - but the morning 5G22 seems to be awaiting the same train.
