On the trivia section of https://www.SimSig.co.uk/Wiki/Show?page=simulations:saltley:additional_info there is a link to a forum thread. Forum URLs have all changed since that page was written in 2016, so the link is dead. However as the IDs of topics have not changed, it was not very hard to find the actual thread: https://www.SimSig.co.uk/Forum/ThreadView/2570

It would not surprise me if there are many more such links. In any case, the topic they're referring to can be found by looking for "&id=...." in the URL (in the case above, &id=2570) and appending the number to https://www.SimSig.co.uk/Forum/ThreadView/.

Now fixed. (And locked the page, as it is part of a simulation manual.)
Thanks for the report, might have to see if there's some way of doing a bulk download/search of the wiki to find any more such links.

The website was supposed to handle the old links as best as possible but that seemed to have gotten broken at some point. Now fixed.
