As I couldn't find info in the manual I have posted here.
What is SCS? is it the same as EXM?

Bit confusing although I do know York a little. I'm not fully quintan to the area.

I have a few trains in a timetable I'm working on that uses Platform EXM which is next to Platform 2 for the Scarborough bound trains.

There is no mention of it in the timetable editor, and having to use Signal Y239. Apart from notes section to remind signallers the train goes into EXM.


Timetable F4 Location for seeding:
York Platform EXM

Timetable Editor Missing Location:
York EXM

I have just had a look online and found this photo of the IECC layout. EXM is Exam Sidings but you are right in thinking it is not in the location list or marked on the layout of the sim. I wonder if someone will correct the layout and the TT list? Here is the photo: signal 239 is marked.

Turns out it is York SCS in the timetable editor and seeding at Signal Y239 is the correct location.
Confused still with it showing SCS and no indications of Exam Road as Dave suggested.

SCS = Scarborough Siding. Also known as Exam(ination) siding and Inspection siding. One of those places where multiple names exist.
