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 desktop 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.

Just a quick update on my London Bridge project. Work has now been finalised on the track layout, which includes the approach lines down past New Cross Gate and Through Peckham, this is to allow better management of trains as there is a capacity to queue trains on the approach to the now narrowed Brick layers arms junction, as per the real timetable. It also allows fast trains to be signalled correctly before they reach the first red signal at New Cross Gate allowing the timetable to be more accurately adhered to.

While the track layout has been completed, much like the real thing the timetable is proving a more complex task, as there are a lot of trains to code. The plan is to draw a timetable running from the start of service at approx 5am through the morning peak and then ending around 12 noon. At present work has not advance much beyond the input of the Thameslink services and some of the West Croydon Via Peckham trains. Now that Southern have announce their changes to the real time table I will be using that as a guide to draw up the timetable for the simulation, and using it to identify areas were the timetable may conflict, however the plan is to release the simulation with the as close to the intended timetable for January the 5th as possible.


MegaphoneIt has been brought to our attention that the forms for both project submission as well as the contact form were broken. An innocent WordPress Update to a new version has broken these forms, and we are glad to report that both forms have been re-created and are working as desired.

We’d welcome any new project submissions in the near future as we have received a lot of interesting Sneak Previews.

We apologize to any inconvenience this may have caused.

Hello all,

I have only just recently come across this fantastic website, however just a short amount of time using the simulator has inspired me to create a layout of my own. The layout is of Southern Railway (Central) side of London Bridge Station and New Cross Gate as they will stand come the 5th January. It is still in it early stages, though most of the track has been laid the timetable is yet to be started. This should prove an interesting station to operate as the limited track plan and large number of trains create a challenging environment to ensure trains keep as close to time as possible.

Sneak Previews:-

Hello everyone.

Here are some sneak previews of my projects. These are all under development condition (mostly timetables). All of them are fictional. I will publish them as soon as possible. Some track layouts may be changed at the time of publication.

And I have also made an update for my previous project “Burdwan Town Bus Service”. It will a miniature version of the previous track layout but with the same timetable making it more challenging to play. Publishing Soon.

Hi Everyone,

Due to a recent hard drive failure, I have lost all of my Railway Op Simulator files including my Metropolitan Line. Therefore the project has now ceased and I won’t be carrying on.

I am very sorry to those who have been waiting for the Completion of the Line. I currently don’t have plans for further projects.
