This fine heritage simulation recreates the days of main line and branch line steam on the Southern, with semaphore signalling and authentic operation of the manual signal box, including facing point locks (a new feature for our simulations).
Seaton Junction was located on the LSWR main line between Salisbury and Exeter, and was the junction for the smallÂ seaside town of Seaton in Devon. Opened in 1860, the station was reconstructed in 1927/8 with two through tracks on the main line and loops to the newly extended platforms. At the same time a new branch line platform was added, set at an angle of 45Â° to the main line.
The Summer 1959 timetable covers aÂ full 24 hours. Most branch line trains terminated at the junction station, though some did run through to Exeter and there were through coaches to and from Waterloo attached to and detached from the branch train.
