Signal Box (Windows)

Send and respond to authentic bell signals, pull the right levers in the right sequence and you can keep the traffic moving. Track diagram, block instruments and lever frame visible on screen. Track plans show signal indications and point positions.

NOTE: Both our Signal Box simulations now include the option to send bell signals by tapping on the mouse button.

 Signal Box: Yarnton Junction 1954 - You are in charge of this busy signal box just north of Oxford for your chosen shift on a summer weekday. Passenger traffic includes some to or from the Fairford branch (single track); freight traffic includes some terminating at or originating from the Exchange Sidings under your control, some of which comes round the LMS loop from the Bletchley direction. Access to the Exchange Sidings from the north requires reversal on the main line or loop, with a need to shunt into the forward section on arrival or to block back on departure. You control traffic by interacting with the block instruments and lever frame, with an enhanced signal box diagram to keep you in touch with the world outside. Definitely not easy, but a learning shift is included, and the Help includes a tutorial walking you through the handling of the first train in each direction. All the information screens use Windows conventions, and can be viewed while the simulation continues to run. (Difficulty ####) Price £20 (£10 upgrade from DOS version)

Signal Box: Ravenglass 1958 - Designed as a starter for new signallers, and priced accordingly. You are in charge of this quiet signal box on the Cumbrian coast line between Barrow and Whitehaven for your chosen shift on a summer weekday. Passenger traffic is mostly local but may include an excursion bringing passengers for the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, whose station is adjacent; freight traffic may include a pickup goods in one or both directions at higher difficulty levels. Access to the yard requires reversal from the main line, with the use of hand signals. You control traffic by interacting with the block instruments and lever frame, with an enhanced signal box diagram to keep you in touch with the world outside. A learning shift is included, and the Help includes a tutorial walking you through the handling of the first train in each direction. All the information screens use Windows conventions, and can be viewed while the simulation continues to run. (Difficulty ####) Price £10
