Basingstoke Main Released! (SimSig)

The southwestward SimSig march continues with the release of Basingstoke (Main). The four track main line from Waterloo culminates with the division of the West of England towards Salisbury and Exeter, and the South Western Main Line to Southampton and Weymouth. A branch from Didcot and Reading also joins at Basingstoke which carries freight to and from the southern ports, local passenger trains, and also forms part of the Cross Country network.

Basingstoke is a single player simulation with enough going on to keep you busy but not overworked. This can chain to Woking and Salisbury currently, with future provision for other simulations if they become available. Two timetables are provided, a 2015 and a 2019. It is right up-to-date with Reading Green Park station (opened May 2023).

Doncaster Station, North & South (SimSig)

It’s here! After many years of researching, developing, and testing, the Doncaster Station simulation is finally available for you to purchase. This simulation is certainly on the difficult side but is manageable for one player once they have gained familiarity with the area. Chain Doncaster Station to Doncaster North and Doncaster South (and onwards) for some large multiplayer games!

Doncaster PSB was opened in stages from 1979 to 1981, replacing a number of smaller signalboxes which closed or were relegated to gate boxes. Located nearly 156 miles from London King's Cross, the PSB has a downstairs interlocking room and an upstairs panel control room, along with ancilliary equipment. The 110ft long panel requires five signallers on duty at a time during the day.

This simulation is complex due to the amount of freight moving from yard to yard under signaller control, mingled with local passenger services, high speed trains, and through freights, all vying for a clear path through the area. Two panels are included, panels 2 and 3, also known as the Decoy panel and Station panel respectively. Though challenging, a single player can operate both panels at normal speed.

Telford and Oxley (SimSig)

We are pleased to announce the release of the Telford and Oxley simulation. This modern day simulation covers the Oxley carriage sidings and the line through Madeley Junction, Telford, and Wellington through towards Shrewsbury, controlled from the West Midlands Signalling Centre. This simulation fills the gap between the Shrewsbury simulation and the Wolverhampton simulation, enabling through running all the way from London Euston to Holyhead!

Stourbridge Junction (SimSig)

Stourbridge Junction has been released. Completing another section of the Midlands area, this simulation covers the line from Jewellery Quarter (Saltley simulation), Galton Junction (exclusive; Birmingham New Street simulation), Round Oak, through Stourbridge Junction, and on to beyond Kidderminster. It features the infamous Stourbridge Town line, known in more recent days for its flywheel-driven Parry People Mover, as well as the connection to the even more famous Severn Valley Railway at Kidderminster.

Megjelent a Crewe (SimSig)

A SimSig Crewe szimuláció a környező számos kis jelzőállomást és a Crewe PSB-t is magában foglalja, a fő ábrázolt korszak a Crewe állomás 1985-ös új jelzők utáni időszaka.

A Crewe szimuláció a West Coast Mainline vonalat fedi le Madeley-től (exkluzív) Acton Grange Junction-ig (exkluzív), valamint a Sandbachon keresztül Manchester és Runcornon keresztül Liverpool felé vezető elágazások egy részét. A Shrewsbury, Chester, Greenbank és Kidsgrove felé vezető elágazások szintén szerepelnek, csakúgy, mint a Basford Hall-i pályaudvari komplexum számos hozzáférési pontja.

Olyan opciókat is beépítettünk, amelyekkel egy játékos számára is könnyebben kezelhetővé válik a munka, mint például az extra automatikus gombok, valamint a szabályozott vasúti átjárók és az abszolút blokkoló berendezések kikapcsolása.

Crewe mind a hét szomszédos szimulációhoz kapcsolódik, ami hatalmas változatosságot tesz lehetővé a többjátékos játékokban.




Central Coast NSW Released (SimSig)

Central Coast NSW has been released. This sim covers Sydney's 'Main North' line from Hawkesbury River all the way to Islington Junction and the city of Newcastle.

This is a slow-paced regional sim, covering a lot of territory, where your regulation decisions are key. Turning a heavy coal train out in front of an express will have you potentially living with your decision for hours!

Central Coast can chain to Sydney North for a large multiplayer game. Trains will 'hand over' between sims at Woy Woy tunnel.

Freight traffic does not always run exactly to timetable. Some trains gain time when given a good run, others struggle to keep time. Trains departing balloon loops, especially Eraring, are generally not given enough time and will appear to be late - this is quite normal. Learning the running times between locations through experience will help you path these slow freighters.


Woking - Released (SimSig)

Following the recent meet we are excited to announce the release of the Woking simulation.

Take control of our version of Woking ASC, the real Woking ASC opened in August 1997, replacing a number of smaller signalboxes, some of which dated from the 1930s. The signalbox consists of a raised rear supervisory dias with two routesetting panel positions and a large rear indication panel visible to everybody. Despite being fitted with the same style cutouts for the headcode displays as Wimbledon ASC which has ARS: Woking ASC was never fitted with it, however the simulation has! A third position on a separate freestanding panel was added in the 2013.


Cornwall - Released (SimSig)

Following the recent meet we are excited to announce the release of the Cornwall simulation.

Take control of the Cornish Mainline, from St Germans all the way to the buffer stops at Penzance, as well as the Cornish branch lines to Looe, Fowey, Newquay, Parkandillack, Falmouth Docks, and St Ives.

This simulation covers the Cornish mechanical signal boxes from the fringe with Plymouth Panel Signal Box at St Germans all the way to Penzance, including the branch lines to Looe, Fowey, Newquay, Parkandillack, Falmouth Docks and St Ives.

There are nine signal boxes simulated, controlling a variety of technologies from Mechanical with tokens and absolute block to modern SSI and relay based interlockings.
