Trackattack Signalling Simulations

This GENSHEET page is a promotion for Track Attack software. I consider this to be the better of the signalling simulations available, although not particularly well known.

Below is a portion of the screen taken from the Perth simulation showing the Dundee station area .



In this you see a train waiting to enter Dundee from Perth, an 1156 departure waiting in the carriage sidings and a freight train 'FREE' within the west goods yard.
The simulations run as a full screen 640 x 480 pixels and are generally compatible with the MS Windows OS. They offer variable clock speed from 10% to 400%, save and reload, and round the clock running. Light engine movements and in some cases servicing appear in higher priced simulations, or can be added using the timetable editor. The aim is simply to keep things running on time, and not locking up trains in yards.
The timetables supplied are not 'real life' and generally run with more trains than expected, especially in quieter areas and for night time freight. However real timetables can be written using the editor programme and these do run fairly well.

A selection of alternative timetables is offered here, these have been compiled using the timetable editor and are based on real passenger timetables.
