    Must be because it's on the Main Southern line, Vern......Sydney to Melbourne.

    Here's a link to the manual...

    It is really good as not only are you signalling trains in the usual manner, you have to operate ground frames for some of the shunting locations en route and obtain train orders before sending trains on to unsignalled routes. In some ways it reminds me a bit of those old SIAM North American traffic control games, or Run 8 (without being able to drive the trains). One thing I need to do is understand Australian train headcodes a bit better - some are just numbers while others are a combination of numbers and letters.

    That will be when you get two facing trains on the Unanderra single line, both too long for the passing loops!

    Hahahahahaha, each to their own Vern. Just not for me buddy, probably haven't got enough imagination. To visualise the train operations and not just be staring at a 2D circuit board or track plan.

    Speaking of the Main South, a very nice geezer from Victoria. Gave me a massive merge of all the lines which started around Picton and ran all the way south passed Albury to a junction i cannot remember name of. The route also included the VR Shepperton line from that junction up to the NSW border. Plus all the NSW branch lines north of Albury. This was all for Trainz, but when i got peed off with the game, i deleted it all.
