Original sim written by James Pedrick
8th April 2015 timetable supplied by John Mills
The simulated area is that of both Manchester South signalling centre, an Ansaldo product, and Macclesfield signal box.
Due to the nature of the style of signalling centre at Manchester South, there are some unusual features. While most will be documented within the manual, there may be a few not noted.
|Manchester Piccadilly||Fringe at Styal|
|Stockport||Fringes at Edgeley Junction No.1|
|Staffordshire||Fringes at Kidsgrove|
|Crewe||Fringes at Crewe Station and Salop Goods Junction|
|Greenbank||Fringes at Northwich Junction|
Choose the scale of train delays and infrastructure failures. The normal SimSig options of “None”, “Low”, “Medium” and “High” are available. Select which one you wish to play from the drop-down menu.
You can also select for one of the bi-directional sections of line to be closed at random. No line closures
Manchester South Signallers need to change the direction of travel before they can take advantage of the bi-directional working. This has been simulated by requiring the user to cancel any routes in the current direction of travel before clicking on one of the arrows for the opposing direction.
There are a number of Signal Group Replacement Controls through the sim. Each one of these replaces any signals which are within the red line to either side.
The SGRCs are Right Click to activate, and Left Click to replace
When routing towards Crewe, be sure that you have the correct route set. Crewe Salop Goods bypasses Crewe Station and vice versa. Although these lines are shown together in sim, in reality they split just short of Crewe.
At Middlewich, when sending a train to Northwich, you control the route into the loop, Greenbank controls the route out of the loop. When receiving a train from Northwich, Greenbank sends you a train, they route into the loop, and you route from the loop.
It is not possible to route from Signal 3893 to 4135 while a route is set Signal 4136 to 4134 and vice versa.
Signals 4105, 4107 and 4109 form triple red protection. These will clear as expected with the normal passage of trains.
There are restrictions on which routes can be set simultaneously over the junction. This is down to the positioning of Points 5250. When trying to set such routes, you will get a message along the lines of “No Overlap Available”, or “Subroute Locked in Opposite Direction”.
For example, if you have a route set, Signal 385 to Signal 391, along with the route, Signal 4390 to Signal 4388, you cannot set the route, Signal 4125 to Signal 4395.
