Opened in 1986, Leicester Power Box controls 54 route miles of the Midland main line between Loughborough North Junction and Sharnbrook, interfacing with the power boxes at Trent and West Hampstead respectively.
This simulation covers the busiest part of the area, 8.5 miles between the Syston triangular junction and Wigston North Junction.
In addition to the North-South traffic on the main line, this section is shared by traffic to and from the Peterborough line to the East and the Nuneaton and Birmingham line to the West.
Leicester is one of our Modern Series simulations.
