The manual states P3 is 294 meters. However, it seems to be less than 290 as two trains of 130 and 160 do not fit in it together.

Obviously trains need margins and can't close up to 1cm precision, but using more than 4 metres for that seems excessive.

If the two trains are not coupled then there will be a gap between them, as well as the normal gap at the buffers. You might be able to shunt one or both forward (but check what direction they're facing).

The Timetable didn't have the incoming service at "FX" position, so will have stopped short of the buffers by a couple of metres or more. So yes, as advised by Geoff you will need to move 1A35 in the Up direction.

NB: Timetable also doesn't have Platform Share activity, so ACI may well not work properly.
