SimSig Derby

Simulation Options

The simulation has multiple Scenarios and Options (selected at Start-up only).

Adverse Weather Conditions

Affects train acceleration/deceleration and signal sighting distance. Turn on to add more difficulty.

Difficulty Setting

  • Beginner No failures but a few delays

  • Standard Up to 2 failures active and some delays

  • Difficult

  • Gremlins at work

  • One of those days

Era of Simulation

  • Pre 1999

  • 2000-2005

  • 2006 Onwards

Pre 1999:

This includes the Up goods line at Branston Jn, the old Burton-on-Trent loco sidings, Willington Power Station, Wirksworth Single line and the Denby branch.


The above areas are not available, but includes the addition of Barton Central Rivers Depot.

2006 Onwards:

Drakelow power Station has been disconnected, and the point work has been Clipped & Padlocked.

Random TSR (Temporary Speed Restriction)

  • None No TSRs

  • Rare Some TSRs

  • Common More TSRs

TORR (Train Operated Route Release)


Note that in real life Derby was not fitted with TORR, and as such the default setting for the sim is for TORR to be off.
