One or two glitches found so far:

6H88 needs the shunt move at Earles Sidings modifying to stop it blocking the line for 1B74 (suspect it needs a passing time for Earles Sdg then the location for the actual reversal altering to ES30 (reverse)).

Meadowhall platforms wrong for 1Wxx services (although that was/is an actual NR WTT error IIRC)

The second 0Z01 FLHH light loco shunt move doesn't reverse at Barrow Hill North Jcn if routed onto the main line (heads off towards Beighton at a rate of knots!)

One more to add - there seems to be a pair of 0M02 light locos with different entry points but no rule to ensure only one of the two runs in any one session.... (this being the Tuesday TT, as were all the ones found in the previous post)

It's the Tuesday one (from the old board). Another thing I've noticed is that 142s seem to have problems keeping to time on the Hope Valley stoppers, even on easy settings and nice weather. On time departures from Sheffield are invariably 3-4 minutes down by the time they get to Edale, even with a clear road and likewise in the opposite direction (albeit only a couple of minutes usually lost). Is this intended (effects of gradients) or are the timings a little tight?

The timings for the 142 are taken fom the WTT, 0Z01 not reversing on the main is because the location dictated in the sim programming states that you can rev on the gds but not on the main.
You are right about 6H88, it needs altering, also the rule for 0M02 is indeed missing.
The platforming at Meadowhall is as per the WTT.

One more minor question, namely how long is the down goods loop at Earles Siding? The TO tt has the 6M06 "Binliner" (18.55 Scunthorpe - Bredbury RTS) due to be looped there to allow the following 1B91 Cleethorpes - Manchester Airport service to pass, but it doesn't seem to fit without some fancy shunting! (back end hangs out unless it's run into the head shunt at the west end then reversed back behind the exit signal after 1B91 passes). Am I doing it right this way or making a hash of it?

GM

Also found a couple of shunt moves in Sheffield station that need looking at for this timetable - 5Y46 needs to have its reversal location set to Sheffield S101/102 (Reverse) with TLN rather than just Sheffield and 5P78 can't get to platform 8 to platform 7 via the CWM siding (reversal at S82 would be the best way I suspect....)

One or two more tweaks to add to the list, mainly regarding late ECS moves from platforms 6 & 8 to the HS - at least two (5P94 and 5C97 spring to mind) need amending so that they reverse at S82 rather than S88. 1F70 and 1E73 are also rather awkward to deal with if they both use platform 2 (the latter often ends up running late as it's due to arrive before the former leaves!). I ended up doing a quick platform alteration to put the former in 5 and moved 2Y41/2R89 to 1B.
