Which way round a sim is will have nothing to do with a map, take Wembley mainline, Euston is on the right as that's where it is on the real panel. Rugby on the other hand has Euston towards the left as that's how the real box has it.
Actually, Euston has Euston on the left.

Some old timers may remember when King's Cross got turned around (the diagrams I supplied Geoff with have KX at the left end, while the panel has it at the right end). I recall Geoff asking me one day:

"How can I work out which version of King's Cross [name] has got?"
"Which way round is it?"

(I wrote a script to turn the internals around, so things like subroute identifiers are all back to front.)

You've proved the point quite nicely, as they flipped Euston over when it moved to Wembley.

Manchester Oxford Road is another example, it got flipped when it moved into Manchester ROC

And then there is, at least, Cardiff, where Right is East, and Left West, but N/S are flipped.

there's loads where simsig has the orientation "wrong" compared to real life, normally where there's multiple smaller boxes involved.

Barnsley for instance is upside down compared to the real panel, but fits onto Sheffield's correctly oriented layout.

And the wrong way round as well: Chippenham is on the right-hand side of the panel, not the left as in SimSig.

Really? Why on earth would they do that - it means you have to say "on your right" when the diagram says something is on their left.

Mind, Cardiff was the place where there were non-existent points on the diagram.
