I'm running KX, Peterborough and Donny South chained.

I missed the first opportunity to save the game so I've saved it now.

In both occasions I have sent Freights UP Fast towards KX and a duplicate appears on KX as an undescribed train.

Is the train in question 6O35 only or has there been other instances?

Does the KX TT make use of the Sandy entry point in place of the Biggleswade one? If so, see here: https://www.simsig.co.uk/Forum/ThreadView/53148

It also happened with 4O19.

This sounds about right. Is there any way of fixing it??

UPDATE

I changed the entry points from Sandy to Biggleswade, and the repeat entries don't occur.

Obviously there's an issue with the Sandy entry points

Can confirm that changing the entry point on the timetable from Sandy to Biggleswade has solved the issue for the 2009 TT.

I had a look at some more recent TTs and similar trains all use Biggleswade as their entry point, so a simple change to the train TTs in the 2009 TT should solve it.

Any TT update WILL undo all the changes you've made, KGX is being fixed and I will not at this moment in time be changing entry points as the fixes should stop the duplicates entering

If you need it fixed before the update then rename it (in the F4 editor first) and *then* 'Save As ...'
That would be safe against a timetable update coming before the sim update if that were to happen.

Once sim is updated you can then delete your patched version and go back to the official timetable.

That was in fact my intended course of action
