You can join #on-our-simsig-lobby at any time for the pre-session chat.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Exeter[edit | edit source]

There is a good service operating on all routes in the area.

Two trains are in Exeter New Yard - 5A10 at signal E666, and 5L28 at signal E628. Both are due to depart at around 07:00.

There is a temporary speed restriction on both the Up and the Down line through Dainton Tunnel in both directions, of 15mph for freight and 30mph for passenger following the discovery of a minor trackbed defect overnight.

Westbury[edit | edit source]

There is a good service operating on all routes in the area with nothing else to note.
