Please help me decide........Yawn Yawn Yawn - apologies for the sarcasm.
TheBVE2010: It's either here or the forum :P

TheBVE2010: One moment guys, I'm just trying to find the Bristol timetable folder.
MJD: Ready yet?
WinsfordSaltMine: nice
TheBVE2010: I'm gonna fire up Bristol 2009 in a few minutes. If anyone wants to chain something to me, feel free, but I will be turning down chain requests after the session starts.
WinsfordSaltMine: :)
WinsfordSaltMine: you choose, your hosting :0
TheBVE2010: E.g Saltley + Derby or Bristol + Exeter
WinsfordSaltMine: do Saltley or Bristol or anything free lol
TheBVE2010: Is anyone willing to do a chain with me?

DaveHarries: Will be along for Vic C in a short while: just doing something with the klayout editing tool.
arrivatw: evening all
headshot119: All of the payware sims can be tried in a free demo mode before you buy. There are also several donationware sims which don't require payment.
If you are a beginner, try something like Royston, Llangollen, or Huddersfield, the first two are free the later isn't

headshot119: @DaveHarries

Delete VictoriaCentral.sim off of your computer, then press check for updates
DaveHarries: HELP. Am trying to join the Victoria Central session but when I try to connect I get told I need to update. However a "Check For Updates" click brings up no update for Vic Central and I can't reinstall as VC is nowhere in the files section.
DaveHarries: Nope. No luck. And it isn't in the Files section either.
DaveHarries: Will do. Odd really because I always update when I read there is one available.
KymriskaDraken: delete the VictoriaC.sim file and try it again
DaveHarries: I click "Check For Updates" but none come up.
KymriskaDraken: You need to update then Dave
DaveHarries: Server tells me to update VC but there is no update available.
DaveHarries: I am finding that I cannot access the Victoria Central session due to a conflict in sim versions.

welshdragon: Much apprreciated James, Thanks. The formation I requested info for is used regularly on M.Pic - Llandudno/Holyhead services in current WTT, Am drafting a TT for NWC (so I can get used to the service pattern again), Might be for public release, might not be, depends on how tidy I can make it ;)
Guts: 350/3 are 110mph units
JamesN: Anyway 67+3+DVT re-added to the wiki page from original spreadsheet. I'll have another tidy up of the modern section in a few days.
JamesN: JC92, afraid to say you're incorrect - HST Trailers (which, strictly, are MkIII design, not MkIII coaches) and LHCS MkIII (both a and b variants) are all broadly identical. The differences are all in wiring and coupling arrangements - nothing that constitutes a change of length in SimSig terms (which can only handle lengths to nearest metre anyway)
KymriskaDraken: Er, aren't the loco-hauled ones Mark 3A?
jc92: Mk3 HST coaches are a different length to Loco Hauled Mk3s aswell
JamesN: No, Mark III coaches are 23m. It did have the WSMR 67+3+DVT When I wrote the original page, it seems in the unending quest to turn it into a spotters guide by some members - despite by repeated reversions and requests to the contrary - it's been deleted.
WinsfordSaltMine: I thought a coach was 19 metres
headshot119: Same as the one WSM linked to, just knock 23m off for the missing coach
WinsfordSaltMine: It gives a 67+4+DVT
WinsfordSaltMine: it gives the ATW 67 set, cant yo work it out from that
welshdragon: @WinsfordSaltmine Nah mate it doesn't
tjfrancis: kings cross now cloused
WinsfordSaltMine: should tell you
WinsfordSaltMine: «link»
welshdragon: Anyone able to tell me what Simsig Characteristics a 67+3+DVT has please? It's for a new timetable ;)
tjfrancis: kings cross now full
tjfrancis: kings cross now on break into 20:30pm
tjfrancis: kings cross now full

SimSig is entirely supported by donations and advertising banners. If you download a simulation and like it, please consider the time and effort that a developer has gone to in order to create that simulation. The developer will have have incurred costs of his/her own in order to create the simulation you are now enjoying, such as transportation costs to research the location (often many times to get as much information as possible).

Any donations you make will go mostly to the developer of that simulation but a small amount will be retained to help pay for the website and our own costs associated with SimSig such as purchasing of development software. We accept payment via PayPal, through which donations will initially go to SimSig Ltd. From there I distribute the donations to the appropriate parties. Those parties will have full visibility of funds to ensure fair play.

I hate to ask for donations but advertising alone does not always pay for the bandwidth of the website, let alone research trips and materials for the creation of new simulations.

People who donate £10 or more, or who have donated £10 or more in the past, may be offered exclusive previews or other exciting things that non-donors will be ineligable for, so make a donation now!

With that over with, I hope you are able to support future development of SimSig. Remember that other products on the market can cost £20-£30 or more just for the simulation - often only part of a signalbox, and then you might need to pay to buy a timetable editor or even pay to buy additional timetables.



If you would like to make a donation to the developers, please visit the Shop and choose which simulations to donate to. Note that a PayPal account is not required - you can pay by credit or debit card without logging in.

Please do not send cheques or use any other payment method.

Many thanks and happy SimSigging!
