*Fringe box, signals not controlled in this simulation.
Non-prefixed signals are controlled by York IECC (Y).
The following information is not required to operate the simulation, but will aid writing timetables:
|Splash23||TRTS buttons on Platform 9 at York|
|Splash28||The south end of Holgate sidings, showing signal Y613, photographed from a train approaching York on the Down Normanton|
|Splash29||A Northern Rail Class 158 sits in platform 7 at York, most likely working a Blackpool North service|
|Splash31||The 'Off' indicator on Platform 7, for Y224|
|Splash32||The south end of York station, with the Slow lines diverging to the left, photographed from a train arriving at York on the Down Normanton|
|Splash38||A Grand Central HST departs platform 3 at York, heading south.|
|Splash40||A Virgin Trains East Coast HST arrives in platform 3 at York, with a southbound service|
|Splash50||Platform 2 at York station; from left to right as they appear, signals 235, 237 and 239 are visible.|
|Splash52||York station as it appears in the IECC|
|Splash60||A GBRF Class 66, with coal hoppers in tow, proceeds along the Slow lines at York|
|Splash63||A Freightliner Class 66 rounds the curve onto the Slow lines at York, heading northbound|
|Splash68||York Freightliner depot|
|Splash72||A Freightliner Class 66 with an engineer's train rounds the curve onto the Slow lines at York, heading northbound. The main lines into York station can be seen in the top left|
|Splash74||A TransPennine Class 185 arrives at York from the north. It will enter platform 3, and it just about to cross the link from platform 5 to the Scarborough line|
|Splash85||GBRF Class 66s on York sidings.|
Real interlocking data has been examined for all interlockings. Other than York station itself which is fully SSI, the remaining interlockings use parts of the existing relay interlockings with an SSI-like interface, for which full control tables have not been received. However, approach control and approach locking (the main issues in control tables) are in the SSI-like interface data and, as such, has been used.
Screen views are largely based on the real life screens with some adaptions for a scrollable view. Route lights for Y777/779/782/784, Y405/407/412/414, Y436/438, and Y451/453/456/458/462/464 are not shown in full in real life but are shown in full in SimSig. Most of the same signals show a single yellow aspect on the real workstations even though on the ground they might be showing double yellow or green; on SimSig the correct aspect is shown. See the External Resources below for real life screenshots to show this.
Gascoigne Wood and the adjacent yard is, in real life, a pair of panel boxes and has been reproduced in IECC-like form. These two boxes have been amalgamated into one for purposes of simulation.
Selby, will, in real life hold a train bound for Heck GF between Selby West Junction and Selby Canal Junction until York IECC and Heck GF are ready for it. This is not currently possible in this simulation.
The links here are provided for information purposes and, as we can't control the content of external links, may be inappropriate, invalid, or otherwise not what they were at the time of posting.
Out and about, stations, from the air, trackside...
York station from the air The Scarborough line heads off to the very top left of the picture while the line northwards to Skelton disappears to the upper left. The avoiding lines can be seen at the bottom left of the picture, joining to the main line just below the picture. York IECC is to the left of the station.
The extreme curvature of the line through York station can be seen here The National Railway Museum is in the large white building (and others) upwards of the centre of the picture.
Colton Junction Note the multiple drive mechanisms for the long, high speed pointwork.
Milford Junction Just beyond the area of control (top right of Gascoigne Wood) but a nice photo.
