Another fine Heritage simulation, set in Chippenham on the London to Bristol GWR main line. The simulation depicts the signalling at Chippenham as it was in the 1950\'s. A medium sized location, with very intricate and enjoyable working.
The timetable is set in 1954, when there were a remarkable number of local services, with small 14xx tanks on their push-pull trains. Of course the main line trains featured many ex-GWR steam locos, including \'Castles\' and \'Kings\'.
Chippenham is one of our Heritage Series simulations.
