All the simulations are available for free download. You have unlimited free use of the software, but
the length of each operating session is restricted.
Any simulation can be converted into a fully registered, unrestricted, copy

Software is available only by download.
This simulation features an interesting layout, with train services on 4 routes converging on the terminus station. The area includes the large Crown Point depot, as well as Trowse Swing Brige and Whitlingham Junction.
The Norwich area, as represented in this simulation, is largely controlled
from one panel of Colchester Area Signalling Centre. These arrangements date
from 1987, when electrification and resignalling of the route between Colchester
and Norwich was completed. The resignalling of the Cromer line in 2000 included
Norwich is one of our Modern Series simulations.
