Edinburgh Princes Street
Another fine Heritage simulation featuring Edinburgh's Princes Street station. Also known as the "Caley", it was until its closure in 1965 the largest station site in Scotland and served the two Caledonian main lines to Carlisle via Carstairs, and to Glasgow via Shotts, as well as a number of suburban routes. There were also through trains to Stirling and beyond.
Princes Street retained semaphore signals to the end of its life. With 125 levers and rather unusual signalling arrangements, working this box will offer a real challenge to the signalling enthusiast.
The authentic timetable is for Summer 1958, with nearly 300 train movements during the day.
Edinburgh Princes Street is one of our Heritage Series simulations.
