This major rail centre in South Yorkshire provides a real challenge. Train operations are complex, with many trains terminating here, others changing direction and freight traffic to be fitted in between the frequent passenger services.
In addition to Sheffield itself, the simulation includes the Dore triangular junction, Dore and Meadowhall stations and Woodburn Junction. Trains enter and leave the simulation area on 6 lines: the Midland main line to the south, the cross-Pennine line to Manchester to the west, the Rotherham and Barnsley lines to the North and the Worksop and Tinsley lines to the east.
Sheffield is one of our Modern Series simulations.
