Mechanical Signalling Simulations

Authentic recreations of the traditional Railway Signalbox

Welcome to the home of Blockpost Signalling Simulations

Latest News, May 2020

   Our next simulation - Crow Nest Junction - will soon be available as a demo version.
Further details of this very interesting simulation are now available on our Advanced Series webpage

The Next Blockpost Software Simulation:-

Crow Nest Junction.

 Not the recently-closed plywood wonder, but the former L&Y box of 91 working levers. The simulation is set in the late 1950's when the area still featured extensive freight operation to and from the Liverpool docks, the Lancashire coal fields and local manufacturing industry.  Coupled with some very difficult gradients, this necessitates the use of Banking locomotives from the Wigan direction. Add to this busy holiday traffic to the seaside resorts of Southport and Blackpool (yes, a number of these did run via Hindley!) and operation is quite interesting!


Timetable Editors remain available for purchase

In response to many requests, we have been busy developing Editors to enable customers to create and edit timetables to run on our simulations. The first of these, for Portcreek Junction, is now available for purchase. 

Please note that the Editors will ONLY work with Registered copies of the simulations - they cannot be used with the demos.  If you therefore would like to create your own timetables, but have not yet purchased a full license for Portcreeek, you should do so before purchasing a Timetable Editor.

Licences for our

Portcreek Junction, Gloucester Road Junction, Barnham Junction, Ford (Sussex),  Yapton Crossing and Exeter West simulations remain available for purchase on line.

Demo versions of all of our simulations are available for free download


About our Simulations

Our simulations authentically re-create the working environment of the traditional mechanical Signal Box, giving you full responsibility for the safe and punctual operation of the trains under your control
