Whenever I've seen a 715 tonne train on RTT its usually a track machine.

Its a strange working to say the least. There are no sidings at Lidlington so likely a track machine.

Thanks, thought it might be a track machine but the trailing load made me think otherwise!

yes - that is just the timing load for the timetabling system

I see these and wonder why? Can the timetabling system not understand it being timed as a simple OTM or does 715 tonnes have some significance?

It is because it is the timing load with the most populated SRTs, nothing more nothing less. There are specific OTM timing loads but I dont know if these feed down to RealtimeTrains in the same way. Some timing loads dont such as Chiltern 168s showing as 158s.

In the CIF there is literally only a power type and timing load field. The speed is also derived from these. There is a translation mapping between the ITPS versions of these and the CIF version, but for quite a few they are so numerous that it's not worth even trying to decode it. (A future version of RTT does have a decode table for some.)
