The Australian SimSig crew are proud to announce their latest and greatest sim yet: Sydney Box!

Sydney Box was a combined Westinghouse NX panel commissioned in stages from 1979 to 1981, and decommissioned on July 28, 2018. This panel centralised the area previously worked by Station East, Station West, Wells Street, and Illawarra Junction signal boxes, as well as some local control panels.

The entire Sydney rail network is designed to feed passenger trains to this area. Central station is the heart of the railway, the zero kilometre mark where Up becomes Down. Delays in nearly any part of the suburban network cause flow-on issues here. Your work has an effect on approximately one million passenger trips per day. Can you keep them moving?

Also

Sydney North and Strathfield have had updates and the latest versions of those are required for chaining with Sydney Box. There are also sim updates to Huyton, Slough, and Warrington. Finally, the Loader is now at V5.29 and is required for Sydney Box to operate correctly.

I've just gone and updated the loader for v5.31 and I got v5.29!. Is this incorrect?.

It should have read 5.29, sorry. V5.31 was going to be the next release candidate so I just got ahead of myself for a moment there.
