Length of Loops 29/09/2016 at 11:47 #85489

I cannot be bothed to read through 110+ post on the Tyneside Q&A to see if this question has been asked, so I have started a new thread.

The Simsig Manual for Tyneside gives the lengths of the Platforms but there are no lengths given for any of the many Loops. [ Darlington(Down Pass Loop, Bypass, Up/Down Stn Loop, Up Goods Loop), North Road (goods Loop), Ferryhill (Up Goods Loop), Sunderland (No1 & 2 sdgs), East Boldon (Up Loop), Pelaw Jn (Up Goods Loop, Down Goods Loop), Heaton (Down Goods Loop(both sections), Up Goods Loop) ].

Anyone know the lengths?
