In real life, this area is actually controlled by 5 signalboxes (and part of Stoke’s power box). These boxes are a mixture of small power boxes and manual lever frames.SimSig Stafford is a representation based on the layout prior to the Trent Valley Four Tracking project (TV4), prior to which the layout hadn’t changed much since the route was electrified in the mid 1960s.
Stafford is a railway ‘crossroads’ between the busy West Coast Main Line which carries many high speed passenger trains and freight trains, and the route from the West Midlands area to Manchester which is also quite busy. It all meets at Stafford and which is where you will have to regulate the varied traffic.
Stafford is one of SimSig's oldest simulations but this free update has refreshed the simulation throughout to take advantage of many of SimSig's new features.
