I've got one from 4-11-2007 does that one count? It is not made by me, and it does not appear to be finished. The main line runs from Grantham towards somewhere around Moss, and the lines from Crowle and Thorne North are in it, but all lines towards the west are cut of at random places and some yards are missing south of Doncaster, as is the avoiding line.
I'd like to see it even though it isn't finished, which is a pity.

Did you actually prepare it yourself?

Everything that you make will be useful - providing it's made of chocolate.

Nope, it was not made by me, it was made by one of the devs. I believe this has been told a few times already in the past 13 years ;).

I think the Isle of Wight railways hold a special place in all Sim-Siggers and other rail enthusiast's hearts. I think it would be really nice to have a 'heritage / what could have been' sim for the IoW network as a one off. It would be really good to se it translated to a modern network and timetable assuming none of the line had closed......

That's odd. I've read virtually every post for the last 5 years and don't recall it being mentioned during that time. Maybe it was before I signed up. Oh well, I'll just forget about it and hope that a sim is produced a some point.

4-11-2007 is somewhat more than during the last 5 years....

You've just confirmed that it was before my time. Thought as much.

It won't let me upload it.

I keep getting the following error:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

What's the file name and size?

I think I've had issues in the past uploading files with unusual characters, and there'll be an upper size limit for attachments.

Hey all! feels like forever! But i'm back and with a new mockup!

Ironically on the same line as the chain, i'm doing..this time it's Cornwall! stretching from st Erth to the fringe to Plymouth PSB at Liskeard!
It covers the following boxes in the 2008-2013 era

St Erth:
While the Down sidings still existed & the bay platform & siding remained unaltered from the age of steam

Roskear Junction:
In its old format before the box was re-fitted with an NX Panel
It only Had 1 stop signal on the Up! and all done through Individual Function Switches
It also retained Absolute Block in both directions

Truro:
Prior to the Cornwall capacity upgrade scheme where it lost its block section to Roskear
also when the down sidings also still existed

Par:
A Fab layout and the heart of the sim in my opinion, the long layout with semaphores at a junction station plus goods loops ground frames, and sidings galore! plus working Absolute Block in all directions! (the layout hasn't changed from 2008-2021)

The Rest of the boxes have seen no change in all these years and are relatively straightforward!

Hope You Enjoy!

Well done Ell. Nice one: hopefully it will come to fruition one day. I am stuck for mockups due to the current non-functionality of the photos.signalling.org site which has been saying "Maintenance Time" when you try and access it for at least the last 3 weeks now: very annoying as I had been working on a mockup of the full-size Lancing PSB.

I am hoping that site returns real soon.

Another great effort but have you missed Luxulyan station and tunnel - scene of the notorious Single HST power car in service incident?...

In Zone 6, no one can hear you scream...

This is a layout I know well, since I sign most of it (only the Fowey, Falmouth and St Ives branches are missing from my route knowledge), and I've been looking forward to someone producing a FULL Cornish sim for years now.

I won't be mean enough to go through all the omissions and spelling mistakes on your layout though LOL

Well mine is only a mock I would hope a real sim wouldn't have as many omissions & spelling mistakes :P

Yeah I'd have to agree its an excellent sim and being its all (bar Roskear & Par/Lostwithiels Panels) mechanical boxes so getting diagrams etc was rather easy and I'd sure for one but this if it came out! so much potential!

(plus with this sim & and the updated bristol it's possible to see Reading and control from Didcot right the way through to Penzance!)

and if you wanna say the errors I'm also happy to edit them to get a true idea of what a future sim would look like? haha
