The final video I took last year before we closed the museum - Walthamstow to Highbury using South to North reversing (All trains).
- for those who like such things.
By the end of the summer season we were running Walthamstow to Warren Street reversing. The simulator is now complete, with proper reversals at Seven Sisters 62/63 roads and in Northumberland Park as per WTT32 - just soldering to complete....
Bar debugging, I feel this is a pretty accurate electrical/electronic record of London Underground signalling covering the period from post-pure mechanical up until computers arrived.
Thank you for posting this, I visited at the NRM open day and forgot to take contact details to hear whether this had found a new home. Glad to hear its future is secured. Unfortunately, the website linked in the original post now seems to be broken, is it likely to come back online at some point?
Today, being the 50th anniversary of passenger services, seems a good day to make available online the Victoria Line signalling simulator on which I've been working for some time.
I've transcribed the entire bookwiring for the Victoria line into a simulator I've written such that every last relay, lever, ATO code generator, Programme Machine and logic function, is faithfully reproduced and runs as per the original. Trains run autonomously under ATO control, and are displayed on scans of the original IMR diagram masters. Frame levers, Programme Machines (with decodes) and most logic functions are also available for display. The Cobourg Street desk is also available, and offers the same control of the IMRs/PMs that the signalling staff would have had. The busiest area to view is Seven Sisters, with its junction to Northumberland Park depot.
It's a work in progress and releasing this publicly will probably show up some stability issues I need to fix! Constructive criticism welcome.
The simulator also interfaces with the original control room desk and panels acquired from Cobourg Street, which some may have seen at Electric Railway Museum before we closed. The desk and panels will be recommissioned in the near future at Colne Valley Railway in Essex allowing interactive control of the simulator using the original equipment.
