The only bit I was confused about was certain letters only appear once so it's difficult not being familiar with the area if I send the train this way where will it go next on the panel but I guess all that be sorted by release?

By this I mean you have A at the top and bottom of a route then elsewhere on the sim you see the same again so you can see where the route that you set will end up, Cardiff Central is great for this as a example.

Really enjoyed myself even if for some reason my TS setup on the laptop decided that push to talk was not acceptable and turned it off so apologies for anyone who might have heard me swear at my laptop.
Which letters do you think only appear once?
C and A I only see once, I've looked a few times and I can't work out where both parts are :(
Okay so there's one A in the very top left corner of Salop Goods Jn panel leading to Gresty Lane. If we go to Gresty Lane panel, well, there it is just above the big label saying 'access to Sandbach through Crewe via Up Main only' where 6V71 is coming from.

There is one C at the bottom of Salop Goods Jn panel just to the left of the scratch pad leading to Crewe PSB North and if we go to Crewe PSB North boom there it is just above platform 12 top left.

A - Salop Goods Junction, near the top left, to Gresty Lane, below the panel assignments and sim info display.
C - Salop Goods Junction, also near the top left, to Crewe PSB North, to the top right of the station. This connection is now much disused, so the tracks are partially drawn in blue.

A is between Gresty Lane and Salop Goods Jn workstations (Absolute Block section).

C is between Salop Goods Jn and Crewe PSB North (look for the isolated sections of track).

Perhaps the attached diagram will help you find all the letter pairings?
