I am making a timetable for Wimbledon and have a few queries regarding issues I have come across making and testing the timetable.

1. One of the trains on the timetable does a rare move from Clapham Yard down to Wimbledon P7 before heading back to Waterloo via the slow lines. However the simulation sees the reversal out of P7 at Wimbledon as 'Invalid Timetable Data'. Does anyone know if it is possible to fix this and if so how?

2. Route setting from W119 at Queenstown Road to 7012X is not possible with a route set up to the signal. The train has to be stationary in platform 2 before you can set the route onwards. The simulator says 'No Overlap Available' when you try to set the route and it is annoying that you have to wait for the train to stop to set the route. Is the simulation meant to do this and if so why?

3. Trains leaving Waterloo that use the Windsor Reversible and are booked to use Clapham Junction P9/MFL stop before Waterloo West Crossings and complain they are not going the right way to end up calling at Clapham Junction. However, they can use the crossover at Queenstown Road to do so and the pathings are set right. Is there an explanation as to why they do this and is there a solution? You can see from the screenshot as to an example of one of the trains which refuses the route.

Cheers

Mantis 40225 and Mantis 40226 for #1 and #3.

#2 can be achieved by back setting. In other words, set the route across the boundary (the two halves), and then set the route to Queenstown Road. The reason is because the half routes act as a slot, which is not given in the case of trying to swing an overlap.

Thanks for your response, does this mean numbers 1&3 will not be fixed until an update comes out for the Wimbledon Simulation or will they be fixed independently and if so do you know how long that could be?

Cheers,

Wimbledon last got an update in September (despite being 9 years old!) so any fixes will come after other simulations have had their turns.
