The Advanced Series

The Advanced series of simulations presents a greater range of challenges and is therefore more suitable for those who have mastered the basics of railway signalling – The locations modeled are all selected from location where the traffic patterns and track layouts present particular challenges which give a flavour of the signalman’s life not that long ago – when the safe and punctual operation of a busy train service depended on the skill and judgment of a dedicated band of men. See how well you do in avoiding errors and maintaining punctuality.


*** NEW ***  Crow Nest Junction – BR (London Midland Region), 1958

CMJCrow Nest Junction lies approximately 3 miles east of the Lancashire town of Wigan in a somewhat remote area formerly dominated by numerous small collieries which exploited the resources of the Lancashire coal field for many years.The junction lies on the four-track Manchester to Liverpool and Southport Main Line of the former Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway. At the date of the simulation the layout included junctions routing trains to or from the Bolton direction and also towards Blackrod on the Bolton - Preston Main line. Additionally, the layout enabled trains to cross between the Fast and Slow lines thus allowing complex combinations of possible routes.

Our "South Coast Series" – BR (Southern Region)

Three of our Simulations Ford, Barnham and Yapton (in our Beginner's series) are located deep in rural West Sussex on the former London Brighton and South Coast line from Portsmouth to Brighton. Since they constitute three adjacent ‘boxes, you have the chance to experience the same timetable from three very different viewpoints. Despite the location, this is no railway backwater – the intense electrified service of passenger, newspaper and parcels trains interspersed with the steam-hauled local goods trains will keep you very pleasantly busy!

The Licensed Versions for some of these simulations include a Timetable for a Summer Saturday race day at Goodwood with a multitude of excursion trains to the resorts of Bognor Regis, Southsea and Littlehampton, Race Specials to Barnham and Chichester and all the associated movements of light engines and empty stock.

1. Ford (Sussex) – BR (Southern Region), 1965

FordFord station is the junction for the short but busy double track branch to Littlehampton. In addition to looking after the main-line trains from Portsmouth and Bognor Regis to Brighton and London, the signalman also has responsibility for a number of terminating trains. Additionally, the Down Loop provides opportunity for Main Line trains to pass and connect with Branch services.

2. Barnham Junction – BR (Southern Region), 1965

BarnhamBarnham is the junction for the short but busy double track branch to Bognor Regis. In addition to looking after the main-and branch line trains,. Barnham is the point where services from London to Portsmouth and Bognor Regis are divided and the up services joined. Additionally, the Down Loop provides opportunity for Main Line trains to pass and connect with Branch trains and the goods yard and carriage sidings are regularly used. the simulation fetures timetables from the period when loco-hauled goods trains operated - necesitating running-round, reversing and shunting moves - all of which have to be fiteed into the regular and quite busy passenger timetable.

Exeter West – BR (Western Region), 1960

Exeter WestExeter St David’s station lies at a railway crossroads. In its heyday, Great Western trains from Paddington to the West Country passed those of the Southern on their parallel journey from Waterloo. The fact that they passed through the station travelling in opposite directions made for operational interest! Until 1985, the junction at the West end of the station was controlled by Exeter West Box – the cramped layout, the steep gradient up to Exeter Central (necessitating the use of banking engines) making for some very interesting operations. This Simulation sets out to accurately replicate the operation of the box as it would have been in 1960

Exeter West – Advanced Add-on Pack

Exeter West Advanced

Available ONLY to existing Customers with a Registered Copy of Exeter West.

The "Standard" version of Exeter West incorporates a number of simplifications with the object of assisting beginners to get to grips with what is a challenging and difficult box to work. For users who have fully mastered this version, an add-on pack is available which removes these simplifications and adds a whole range of additional functions which fully represent operations at the real box.  This version of the programme is in use at the preserved Exeter West Box at Crewe.

It includes a new full 24 hour weekday timetable which fully represents the operations as they were in 1960 making full use of all the functionality.  Purchasers of this extension will enjoy life-time free updates and new timetables as these are developed in future
