First train 6B40 from Sleaford Barkston East Jcn. You cannot set route onto the main line ever. Had to talk train past red and set points manually. You CAN set route TO Sleaford by requesting slot as that works perfectly for a 2xxx train from Grantham that comes in from Allington. I have attached 4 saves from 2 mins before 6B40 enters till it gets to goods line at Grantham. The manual intervention leads to non described train in berth as it hits main line. TT is Doncaster PSB (South) Winter 1999 Era is 1997-1999 Bad weather Off TORR is On. Eveyrthing else is default load up. Op System is Win 10.

I've just run your second saved game (054840 sim time) and a train has entered, hence the red track. You need to insert the train's TD (6D40) at either signal D34 or D32. If you right click on the signal you can see its number. You can see from my screenshot that I have already done this and also set the route at Grantham.

I have also attached a saved game which you can download an play if you wish

EDIT: I made the mistake of setting the route from Grantham before setting the route for 2E01 from P4 at Grantham. Don't make this same mistake!

Everything that you make will be useful - providing it's made of chocolate.

It is a sim bug that has been reported before and I thought had been sorted by the development team

It was, and I think OP started this game before it was fixed as the first save shows a sim version upgrade. I can't reproduce it on a new game.
