When a train has reserved a path past a depot but hasn't passed the depot yet, it cannot find that particular depot when clicking on the send to depot button. Would it be possible to change that behaviour so that trains can revise their chosen path when the depot-button is clicked so that it will actually find a depot along a reserved path? Ofcourse it should only change it's reservation if it's safe to do so. Otherwise it may continue to the next reachable depot.

See example attached. When clicked on the send to depot button the train will locate a depot at the other side of the map rather than the one right in front of it.
This task depends upon

I don't want to be annoying, but #2955 is about automatic servicing and siding-depots. My problem is about manual servicing and mainline-depots...

The problem mentionned in #2955 doesn't occur with my type of depot, where my problem doesn't occur with the depot-style of #2955.

If you still consider it a duplicate, I'll add the details of this # to the other one so that both problems can be considered for one single fix.
