ACI is incuded with ARS as standard.
Workstation 4 notes for more details.
Limited Auto-route setting is provided on the Lanark and Larkhall branches when in non-ARS mode. At Lanark trains will be sent to platform 1 only, but at Larkhall a train will be directed to Platform 2 unless it’s occupied in which case it’ll send it to platform 1. ACI is also provided at these locations.
The majority of running lines (including loops) are electrified with standard 25kV overhead wires.
The following running lines are not electrified:
The following sidings are electrified:
Tracks shown in yellow are electrified in 2000 and earlier eras, additional electrified tracks added in the 2015 era are shown in orange:
The wrong-route code has been set up to allow trains to be diverted 'on the fly' between Newton and Law Jn, provided that any alternative route chosen will not cause the train to miss a booked station call.
Many signals have an overlap track circuit that is not displayed separately on the panel, instead being combined with the preceding track circuit. Therefore, when a train passes the signal and occupies the overlap, the signal will be replaced to red, but the train will still be shown in the same place and the train description will not step. When the train continues beyond the overlap, this is indicated on the panel and the train describer steps up as expected.
Several lines have one-train working. These lines are indicated by an "OCC" light which shows white when a train is occupying the line.
In most cases the occupying train will actually leave the sim and the re-enter when ready to return. While the train is 'off-sim' the OCC light will still be lit and routing of a second train is barred.
Also, it is impossible to use these lines for seeding purposes as a train must leave the sim before any train will enter, in other words the OCC light must be on before a train may enter the sim.
The lines are:
Note that the Westburn line, though drawn similarly, does not work on this principle. See the Workstation 1 notes for more details.
