These might have been raised in the past..

It would be great to eventually see the Great Eastern ML continued on from Liverpool St (as far as Colchester at least). As well as London Paddington to Reading/Heathrow filled in on the Great Western (with a possibility of Crossrail added). Not sure how readily available the data is available, maybe that's why it hasn't been done yet? I know Stratford and Old Oak are quite big areas to diagram....Just some food for thought!

'Thank you' if you would like to see these simulated....

Thanks in advanced
Michael

Knowing our luck, the sims ARE in development but it depends on how far along they are in terms of development and if they ever get to be released.

I think that’s a pretty good assumption to make and fair.

I wouldn’t mind seeing the GEML simulated as far as Colchester but what about the various branches?

Reading is definitely in development and I'm sure slough and Slough New have been mentioned.

I don't want to spoil your day, but I think I've been involved in testing reading 15 years ago already if it was not earlyer. Some sims take awhile to mature, so I wouldn't hold my breath

Youv'e just spoilt mine and a few more besides.
This is one of the sims that I have been awaiting eagerly, along with Doncaster, especially.
Hoping that my time left on this earth is sufficient to see at least one of them!

Am I right in thinking that Paddington is the only one of National Rail's 14 London Termini that hasn't been simmed yet?

Blackfriars - Victoria South Eastern Sim
Cannon Street - London Bridge Sim
Charing Cross - London Bridge Sim
Euston - Wembley Mainline Sim
Fenchurch Street - Fenchurch Street Sim & LTS Sim
King Cross - Kings Cross Sim
Liverpool Street - Liverpool Street Sim
London Bridge - London Bridge Sim
Marylebone - Marylebone Sim
Moorgate - Kings Cross Sim
Paddington
St Pancras - West Hampstead Sim
Victoria - Victoria Central and Victoria South Eastern Sims
Waterloo - Waterloo Sim

The other two I can think of albeit in a historical context are broad street and Holborn viaduct. Holborn is covered in Vic SE. I can't remember if Broad Street was covered at all in NLL.

I don't recall Broad Street being in the NLL sim.
Isn't there a conflict of interest somewhere about a Paddington sim?

NLL has a branch to Reading Lane Jn at Dalston Kingsland, and you can use that (I believe some TTs do) to simulate traffic from/to Broad St. No actual station is included as it is a fringe with West Anglia.

There's a wiki page on conflict of interest but broadly speaking provided theres no evidence/link or similar that Geoff has used data sourced from a conflicting project it's acceptable so either a different developer can work on said project or Geoff can where no possible conflict exists. York/Leeds for instance were conflict of interest however Geoff did York and other developers did Leeds.

In short. Never say never.

Geoff did York and Leeds East/West.

Also Slough New IECC has been decommissioned for a few years

Am I thinking of Ardsley and NW then?

Ardsley and NW were done by Noel.

I would like to see these done. It might be better if they were done as three separate sims though:
- Norwich
- Ipswich
- Colchester

Norwich and Ipswich are panels but Colchester ASC (Thorpe-le-Soken, Colchester and East Gate desks) are VDU setups. I don't know if there would be a means of chaining them together. Pictures of Colchester ASC's setup can be found at
https://photos.signalling.org/index?/category/315-signal_box

Also, if Norwich was done, an update to Cambridge would be an idea which could include the Breckland (Ely - Norwich) line, via. Shippea Hill: I believe that route is now controlled from Cambridge as a VDU workstation. Such an update would permit a reasonable-size chain. I don't know if Norwich, Ipswich and Colchester (if done as above) would be chainable though.
