Unless I've missed it, there isn't any siding lengths.

Especially Fiddlers Ferry where trains are booked into Cripple Sidings (2009 timetable) which is really short

I've just had a look at the 2009 timetable and I can't see anything which is booked to use the Cripple Siding, I can see two trains which use the Fly Ash Siding. 4F77 the 21:50 New Biggin - Fiddlers Ferry, which then goes on to form 4C77 the 10:49 Fiddlers Ferry - New Biggin.

Confusion with Line C, perhaps?

(For benefit of the tape, the Flyash and Cripple lines use a different location to the main unloading lines)

Let me check which timetable I'm using. At work at the moment.

There's 3 trains booked in Flyash/Cripple. One of the departures is 6H48 if I'm not mistaken (Have to check). I'm playing Chained to Warrington, which may be overriding the rules (which I've not even looked at), and they definitely overlap, and one berths before the next one arrives.

LOL. Yeah, fortunately I do understand the different lines.

I've double checked the official 2009 timetable [Lime Street to Runcorn 15-10-09 (0000 start) V.2] only the two trains previously mentioned are booked to use the Fly Ash / Cripple, and both are platformed to use the Fly Ash.

I've also checked the source data for the 2009 timetable, and it's only those two trains booked to use it.

We'll need further information (Save Games + "Technical info" found under Hamburger > Help > About > Technical Info.) in order to investigate.

You're correct, it's the 2015 Timetable V5. The three train are 4F77 -> 4C77, 4F78 -> Berth, 6F36 -> 6C38. 3 problems, 4C77 is booked to leave at 12:35 but 4F78 is booked to Berth at 11:18 and 6F36 is booked at 11:19 to from 6C38 and there's no Rules for these two trains.

Hence why I was looking for the length for the Cripple so I could put 4F78 in there, but it way too long.

2015 Edge Hill TT has a decision for 4F77 and 4F78. This is missing in Warrington's TT. Mantis 35032

6F36 is timed 2 mins behind 4F78 from Arpley Jn so suspect a Decision has gone missing here. Mantis 35033 (Warrington) and 35034 (Edgehill)
