fast train supply station

Recently I watched Fooluaintblack's Channel series on train supply stations and i took it as a chalange to improve upon its last design.
The requirements are:
• must be exact
• you can change the items you want loaded into the train on a combinator
• can remove garbage items/ if some item's amount is to high
• can handle multiple wagons
For testing and building I used editor extensions however the combinator and train part can be done without. I also used the same items and amounts as Fooluaintblack used in his example blueprint.
Fooluaintblack's best design:

features:
• combinators: 17 decider combinators, 7+2l arithmetic combinator, and 3+l constant combinators where l is the number of wagons
• height: 12 blocks
• speed: 834 ticks
• test setup blueprint:
My new design design:

features:
• combinators: 17+32l decider combinators, 7+25l arithmetic combinator, and 2+l constant combinators where l is the number of wagons
• height: 26 blocks
• speed: 777 ticks
• test setup blueprint:
Conclusion: I managed to save of a second but added a ton of complexity.
If anyone is interested then I will try to explain how it works.
I also want to challenge you, the reader, to come up with a faster design.
ps: when you open the blueprint, send the train first to the other station.
ps: English isn't my native langue so sorry for grammar/spelling mistakes.

edit:
I managed to improve my new design even more
Currently my best design:

features:
• combinators: 16+37l decider combinators, 8+18l arithmetic combinator, and 4+l constant combinators where l is the number of wagons
• height: 24 blocks
• speed: 658 ticks
• test setup blueprint:
sidenote: unloading with 11 stack inserters takes 610 ticks and thus is only 48 ticks faster
