SimSig Derby

Ground Frames

The Derby simulation features a number of Ground Frames. General information on operating Ground Frames can be found here , with location-specific information below.

Belper

There are two releases for this frame. Moves between the Up Main and the siding do not require the Down Main release, moves between the Down and Up Main require both releases.

Branston

The frame can only be released when no route is set from signals 96, 98 and 102. The shunt signal on the line from Birmingham Curve junction is normally unlit (shown as grey), and displays a fixed red aspect when the frame is released. Trains entering the siding require a route to be set from DY97 to the grey exit arrow directly above the siding point, which can be done when the points are moved and lever 1 is reversed.

Elford

The frame can only be released when no route is set from signal 6. Both Goods and Main releases must be given (and levers 1 and 2 pulled) before signals 6, 7 and 8 can be cleared. Lever 3 is a facing point lock, and must be moved reverse before lever 4 can be moved.

Engine Sidings No.1

The frame can only be released when no route is set from signal 459, or towards 476. Lever 2 is a facing point lock, and must be reversed before the points are moved. You must then re-lock the points (move Lever 2 normal) before any slot can be given. Once a slot is given, a route can be set in/out of the Slum Siding from the signal corresponding to the slot.

Hicks Lodge

The frame only be released when no route is set towards MW1147, or the back of a train heading towards MW1147 has cleared the points into the siding.

Mosley Street

Trains bound for the siding must approach from the Wetmore Jn direction- the frame cannot be released if they are routed from signal 141 to the LOS.

S&T Siding

No special notes.

Swadlincote

The frame can only be released when no route is set from signal 125. There are separate releases for the siding and the crossover; moves between the Up Goods and the siding to not require the crossover (U/D) release. Lever 5 is a facing point lock, and must be reversed before the points 6 are moved. You must then re-lock the points (move Lever 5 normal) before any signal can be cleared. It is not possible to signal a train from the Down Goods to the siding or Up goods, or from the Up Goods to the Down Goods (unless the move starts from the siding). However, a train can be signalled from the siding towards the LOS on the Up Goods.

Station Yard CS

(CS = Carriage Siding)

This lever frame does not have a release, and is used to control the hand point within Station Yard CS. Before routing a train into the C.S. from the Station Junction end, set the hand point to the desired position. To signal a train out of the C.S. towards Station Junction, set a route from signal 457, then set the point to the desired position and then pull lever 2 to instruct the train to obey DY457.
