You'll need to manually interpose the headcode into the berths at either 82 signal or 87 signal depending on which way they have entered.
(right click on the signal then select interpose on the list, or press 'i' on your keyboard, enter the head code the click on the either of the above mentioned signals.

Trains to Alrewas should exit on their own accord. Would have to see a save file to see what's going on. You can locate save files from your simsig folder for that sim.

Have you phoned and asked for a line blockage by any chance or got a train coming in from the other direction?

If you can save your game, which you'll find normally here C:\Users\Public\Documents\SimSig\Simulations on your system and upload it here, then someone can take a look at what's going on and see if we can get you moving.

Yeah that wouldn't matter for up trains. I suspect that you have routed the train to the white triangle rather than to AS1.
The white Triangle should only be used for trains that are booked to turn on the single line.
To get 4M24 off sim, you will have to authorise him to pass signal at danger by using your F2 option.

Correct procedure for trains to Alrewas is signal 81 to grey signal AS1. :)

Hope this solves your issues.

Wolverhampton, good choice! I thoroughly enjoy it as a single player sim.
