Other UK Simulations

Shed Master (price £12)

Manage a maintenance depot, planning work through the depot so that all goes smoothly and motive power is available on schedule for booked workings. A new and different challenge for the Traffic Control experts.

  • Bounds Green - Purpose-built for HST maintenance, the depot has to handle overnight routine servicing and running repairs, and produce usable sets on time to take up their morning workings. Your tour of duty covers four weeknight shifts. (Difficulty ##)   PLEASE NOTE: This one does not yet have mouse support.
  • Finsbury Park - Before the advent of the HST, and when loco-hauled local passenger and transfer freight workings were still common, the depot is responsible for refuelling, minor servicing and scheduled maintenance of an extensive diesel fleet. (Difficulty #)
  • Old Oak Common - Still busy even in HST times, with major and minor servicing of a large fleet of passenger and freight motive power, as well as refuelling its own and visiting locomotives. (Difficulty #)
  • Stratford - Once the largest steam shed in the country, and still busy in diesel times. Limited storage space complicates your task of servicing and refuelling a large fleet of passenger and freight locomotives. (Difficulty ##)
  • Cardiff Canton - Canton is responsible for much of the South Wales Railfreight traffic, as well as InterCity, Provincial and Departmental duties. An even bigger challenge now sectors insist on the use of their own locos! (Difficulty ##)

Rail Freight (price £12)

Manage freight workings in a major traffic centre, providing suitable motive power for scheduled and extra services and avoiding pathing conflicts. Another variant on the Traffic Control theme, but with some different features

  • Buxton Stone - Control the heavy traffic in this busy quarrying centre, during the transition period when class 25 and class 40 could be seen alongside their expected replacements. (Difficulty #)
  • Cornish China Clay - Manage a fleet of four dedicated class 37s plus visiting Speedlink locos on a mixture of local clay hood workings and Speedlink feeder services. Not nearly as easy as it sounds! (Difficulty ##)

Fleet Manager

Manage a fleet of locomotives for a week, achieving the greatest possible mileage while ensuring that priority trains are covered and that scheduled maintenance is performed correctly. Quite different from Traffic Control, but equally challenging.

Price £12 unless otherwise shown.

  • Class 50 - Based at Laira (Plymouth) and Old Oak Common (London) before the total takeover by Inter-City 125, your fifteen locomotives have to cover services between London, Birmingham, Plymouth, Penzance and Oxford. (Difficulty #)
  • Class 45 (Peak) - Your eighteen Peaks cover passenger services on the Midland main line between St Pancras, Derby, Nottingham and Sheffield. (Difficulty #)
  • ScotRail Class 47 - Your sixteen class 47/4 and 47/7 locomotives cover many of the principal ScotRail passenger services between Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness. (Difficulty ##)

  • Network Solent/Sarum - Your sixteen class 33, 47/4 and 50 locomotives cover most of the loco-hauled passenger services between Waterloo, Salisbury and Exeter. (Difficulty ##)
  • ScotRail 1984 - Your nine class 27 and nine class 47 locomotives cover most of the services between Edinburgh and Dundee, as well as many other ScotRail passenger services between Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness, and trips to Oban, Perth, Carstairs and Mossend. (Difficulty ##)
  • Virgin Cross-Country Manager 1998 - Manage a fleet of 33 class 47 and 17 class 86/2 locomotives for a week, achieving the greatest possible productive mileage while ensuring that all trains are covered and that scheduled maintenance is performed correctly. Virgin have taken a lot of stick, often unfairly, for poor performance; see if you can do better with this fleet of aging motive power. As well as Virgin's own electrics and 24 locos of class 47/8, you have to manage Great Western Trains' five used on the overnight sleeper services, and four 47/7s hired in from Fragonset Railways. Biggest yet in this series, with 50 locos and 14 main locations, as well as out-and-back workings to other places. (Difficulty ##)
  • Fleet Manager: RES - Manage a fleet of nearly ninety locomotives for a week, achieving the greatest possible productive mileage while ensuring that all trains are covered and that scheduled maintenance is performed correctly. The duties to be covered include mail and sleeper services and some freights, and your fleet includes 31 electrics of classes 86/2, 86/4 and 90, as well as 43 diesels of class 47/7 and smaller numbers of 37/4, 47/4 and 73. Biggest yet in this series, with 89 locos and 17 main locations, as well as out-and-back workings to other places. (Difficulty ###) Price £18

Freight Manager (price £12)

Manage a fleet of locomotives for a week, achieving the greatest possible productive mileage while ensuring that priority trains are covered and that scheduled maintenance is performed correctly. On top of that, you have freight load targets to achieve within the scheduled workings, or in the case of Freightliner a much larger fleet to manage

  • Toton Class 60 - Based at Toton in the East Midlands, your fourteen locomotives of Class 60 and four of Class 56 have to cover coal traffic to power stations at Didcot and Ironbridge, including feeder services from local collieries and from Ravenstruther in Scotland.
