SimSig Central Scotland

Platform and Passing Loops Lengths

Lengths are of the track circuits taken from the scheme plans and are not necessarily the same length as the platform.

Where there is more than one TC at a location the lengths are from the left to right.

Note that trains may stop short of the signal so the usable length may be around 10m less than shown.
