Three Bridges

Southern Region

:usertrack:areainfo:threebridges.png

Introduction

Three Bridges controls the majority of the Brighton main line, from north of Croydon through the densely populated areas south of London to the coastal town. Intensive passenger services operate on all routes, with a combination of Thameslink services from north London mixing with Southern services to London Bridge and Victoria. The area also sees a small amount of freight traffic.

Good regulation is key to keeping all-stations, semi-fast and express services running smoothly across dozens of junctions across the simulation, and on the two-track sections through Redhill and south of Balcombe. The smaller junctions can cause just as many headaches than the mass of lines at Croydon! The area is home to three major depots and several other stabling points, keeping the operator busy from the very start to the very end of the day's service.

Three Bridges is a payware simulation- to play beyond a short demo period requires the purchase of a license from the Products area .
