If a long train is sent into the DH Loop, and its back end hangs out over the points (732), the overlap locking points 734 doesn't drop. If the train wants to go to Newport it is stuck, and nothing can overtake it.

It's not an overlap that is locking 734 points normal. 734 points reverse require 732s normal in the control tables. Similarly you can't set a route 20 - 622, and then set a route into the loop from 618 - 20.

Edit

I've also made some changes to the manual to reflect this situation.

"Passengers for New Lane, should be seated in the rear coach of the train " - Opinions are my own and not those of my employer

I'll have to send the standby man out with a point handle.
