## Session

The included session is difficult due to the size of the layout, it is recommended you run the simulation at a lower speed in order to become familiar with the coverage area.

## Tips

Be sure to pay attention to the Metropolitan/Chiltern lines between Preston Road and North Harrow as due to the tight timetables operated by London Underground there can be high congestion. Also pay particular attention to the calling points of services, some Metropolitan Line trains run non-stop between Wembley Park and Harrow-on-the-Hill, and/or Harrow-on-the-Hill and Moor Park.

The platforms at some stations can be confusing. South Ruislip station has a bypass line which runs down the centre. Make sure any northbound Chiltern services set to call here are routed into correct platform (taking the turnout at Northolt Park Junction).

New Project Submission: IE Dublin Area by Krizar

# Iarnród Éireann Dublin Area

A depiction of the local rail network around Dublin Connolly station in the Republic of Ireland. The layout covers much of the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) the area between Grand Canal Dock south of Connolly and Malahide/Howth. Included is a basic early morning timetable commencing at 6am with a couple of additional freight services to and from the Alexander Road freight terminal.

This timetable does not fully complement the layout, as such I encourage others to create their own too, this would be much appreciated!

– Grand Canal Dock

– Tara Street
– Dublin Connolly
– Clontarf Road

New Project Submission: Victoria SouthEastern by Bailey Edwards

This is a representation of the London Victoria (Kent Platforms 1-8). The map includes the included timetable which is taken from May 2019 Timetable Mon-Fri Evening Peak hours between 4 pm and 7 pm.

There will be Govia Thameslink, Southern and Southeastern services along with the timetable.

Operating notes:
Be Cautious at London Victoria Station between 4 and 5 pm, when all the platforms will be occupied, this may result in trains waiting outside the area for a few minutes until an available platform is empty.

New Project Submission: Liverpool Street to Romford by Anthony Sheehy

Liverpool Street to Romford

Actual route, with a relaxing Sunday timetable taken from 2018/2019 timetables of the various operators. TfL Routes run to timetabled times (unrealistic, I know 😉 All trains are headed with an estimate of the real-life performance figures as much as possible.

Each incoming train contains a *suggested* platform number that matches what appears in real life but it’s really down to you.

Operating notes:
Stansted Express leaves via Hackney Downs Fast (DF) others are marked. You do not need to touch the Romford to Upminster line, nor the London Underground at Stratford. They will handle themselves.

More Greetings from Xeon and GuangZhouNan


Those of you with good memories might recall that Xeon submitted an earlier video of his GuangZhouNan station and surrounding lines in February of last year, but this is an enhanced version where the program has been modified to allow longer train identifiers, as is usual on China’s railways.  He has added a great soundtrack to accompany it so please make sure your sound is on when you play it.

GuangZhouNan is the busiest station in China with about 45 trains per hour at peak times!

Below are two still shots of the railway in zoomed-out and zoomed-in modes
