Hi,

In the manual it states
Quote:
Given the linespeed of the single lead junction immediately to the south of Watford Junction, it would be better to use the faster Watford North Junction instead if crossing from fast to slow or vice versa.
This is of course only true for timetables set prior to it, and the single ladder on South Junction, being plain-lined (2016?) :)

Thanks
Jamie

And Watford Jn PSB (which is what the simulation represents) closed in 2014.

Just out of curiousity can anyone please confirm the current status on the junction? Last time I went to Wembley box the junction was out of use but I dont believe it has been put back into commission since?

Open Train Times for what ever reason is showing plain line on the North side of the station. https://www.opentraintimes.com/maps/signalling/lec2#T_WATFDJ

Thanks in advance

LNW(S) Sectional Appendix December 2020 - Table A - MD101 - 010 (Last updated 19/09/2015) notes Watford North Junction as out of use until further notice.

I can't see any changes to that in more recent PONs either.

"Passengers for New Lane, should be seated in the rear coach of the train " - Opinions are my own and not those of my employer

Still out. They're talking about installing it this year but for ulterior motives

When the resignalling was done, the interlocking provided everything for the junction, and I believe all the signals associated with it are in work, just no pointwork. I also remember (I think) the possession where it was to be installed was cancelled as, the chiltern line was stepped up to cater for additional traffic, but there was a landslide closing a tunnel on the chiltern route, so this got cancelled to reopen the WCML. Would be good to see it back in, theres be times in recent years where it would have been useful to have it!
