VolksVolk’s Electric Railway (VER) is the oldest operating electric railway in the world.
It is a narrow gauge railway that runs along a length of the seafront of the English seaside resort of Brighton.
It was built by Magnus Volk, the first section being completed in August 1883.

Today the line runs between terminal stations at Aquarium (a short distance from the Palace Pier) and Black Rock (at Black
Rock, not far from Brighton Marina), with an intermediate station and depot at Paston Place (now known as Halfway). The
line has a 2 ft 8 1/2 in (825 mm) narrow gauge, is electrified at 110 V DC using a third rail, and is one mile long.

The timetable included simulates a Tuesday in 2014, The journey time is approximately 12 minutes, and trains run every 15
minutes from 10:15 to 17:15

This route and timetable was written in under 24 hours (a record perhaps?)

It has been reported that when using the program under Windows 8.1 with high DPI settings, the Maximise, Minimise and Close buttons (normally in the top right hand corner of the screen) are off-screen and can’t be used.

This is a display compatibility issue and can be corrected by right clicking on the railway.exe icon on the desptop or in Windows Explorer, left clicking ‘Properties’ in the submenu, then selecting the Compatibility tab, ticking the ‘Disable display scaling on high DPI settings’ box, then clicking the ‘OK’ button.  That should fix the problem.

If anyone has this problem but prefers not to make the change then the maximise, minimise and close functions are still available in a drop down menu by left clicking the program icon in the top left hand corner of the screen.

Thanks are due to Mark Jones for reporting and finding the solution to this issue.

Suburban line v1“Suburban Line” is a fantasy line and is part of a trial as I am new to the software.

There is a timetable included in which the trains start at three locations, Ash depot, Elm sdgs and oak sdg. After these have appeared the service settles down to a 5 minute arrival and departure at Ash.

You can set up the line for automatic signalling if you wish but this will in fact cause delays! Use the platform loops at the stations to keep the services moving and the trains on as many proceed aspects as you can. Any delays will have a detrimental effect on your performance.

As this is a test sim please let me know of any issues. I will be working on another timetable with express services, which will make the sim even busier and also ensure that more train control is required. Besides that have fun.

Manchester North V4This is a simulation of the Manchester North Signalling Centre.  Note that this is before the Oldham-Rochdale loop was converted to Metrolink operation.

It is a work still in development but released early for any errors or omissions to be notified to Ste for correction using the comment facility on the project page.

Hello. I am a new user of the software and thought I had better say hello to 1 and all. I have been working on a simulator for Manchester North. Now working on the timetable for it. Is there any way I can upload so it can be “checked out” to spot any glaring mistakes that I may have missed?
