Hello,

Firstly congratulations to the developers and timetable compliers of this sim.

I believe there is a signal missing from the end of the up branch at Kenilworth. This is the last signal that Coventry controls on the line and sits next to signal 8 on the gantry.
(EDIT - I have spotted that the era is running in 2004-2007 mode, maybe there wouldn't have been a signal here at this point?)

Also on a tangent... does anyone know where the new station would sit on this line and if it will all be double tracked?

Thank you all.

Having had a look at the signalling plans for Coventry PSB (Before it's move into the West Midlands Signalling Centre), there was never a signal adjacent to CY8 at Kenilworth.

When Coventry was moved into the WMSCC CY8 became LC6502, and a new signal LC6504 was positioned on the Up & Down Kenilworth line on the same gantry. Both of these signals where slotted by LN56.

If you look on opentraintimes you will see changes to Coventry sidings and signalling specially going towards leamington, rugby and Birmingham maybe it could be upgraded to what it looks like today
Thankyou

Very interesting stuff, amazing how moves have been made to make the signalling less restrictive.

Was this the same time that the line to Nuneaton was updated to colour light signals too?
