Unlikely as v5 loader was released a moment ago and we need to ensure it beds in before opening the flood gates with new sims....

I can only do NWC on this occasion.

I should also be able to help as a relief in the third session from around 14:30 - 14:45, if required.

Here is the session Chaining Diagram, including the sims being used and other surrounding simulations, including a couple still in development.

(They will be ready when they are ready!)

Cheshire lines chains to Manchester south as well between sandbach and Northwich and would also chain to any Crewe/winsford simulation at Hartford.

Ooh, Crewe!

Correction made in my previous post:
Connection between Cheshire Lines and Manchester South has been added.

Hartford Junction, controlled by the Winsford signaller, is on the in-development Crewe sim, therefore the connection is already shown on the diagram.

Crewe should be great fun. Really looking forward to it.

Judging by the chaining diagram, Crewe will include Basford Hall and Crewe Steel works.

With that and the Chester sim, that would then enable you to SimSignal a train all the way from London Euston to Holyhead?

That's...quite an achievement

It also allows London Euston - Manchester Piccadilly to be captive via Stoke or via Crewe!

If it connects to Warrington, presumably it (or Warrington) includes Coal Yard and Winsford to the north of Crewe too

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Can't simulate the Shrewsburys as there's a hole between Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury.

Also the Preston and Lancasters but I'll count them in with E&G note

Edinburgh too, the Loader V5 announcement indicated it's on its way in loader format so it'll only be the last 5 or so miles into Glasgow missing.

I wonder what the sim would be that would connect the two, Telford?

I might be able to join for the 1830 shift, but I'm busy during the day with operating an actual box that used to be located in the area of the new Chester sim! (Mouldsworth -> Chinnor)
