Simulation Display and Controls

Overview

Three windows initially appear when starting a scrollable sim.

These are:

New 'View' windows and the overview window can be opened by clicking Menu-> Show

The term "View" refers to the main board or layout panel, usually affixed to the wall in front of the signaller. A small portion of it may be visible on his workstation, and it is this workstation view that SimSig attempts to emulate.
