A Simulation of the Finsbury Park to Ally Pally Railway

Post by Mick Berg » Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:28 am

For anyone who is interested, I have made a YouTube video of a simulation of the Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace branch of the LNER.
Here is the link:

I hope you enjoy it, please let me know what you think.

G'Day Folks

Quite enjoyed it, it's a railway I know fairly well, so I knew where I was all the time, But, there's always a But.....most of the signals would probably have been GN somersault signals right up to closure, second, on a booked service, it would be 'unlikely' to have been following another service, so close that it was catching up the train in front, you need more signals in the 'OFF' to run a service on time. The approach to Park Junction, yes that's fine and the same at Finsbury Park, they would be to only two places, that a signal would be 'ON'

Other that that, a really good effort, are you going to do the rest of the 'Northern Heights' ??????

PS, I haven't checked, But I seem to recall that, some or all of the Northern Heights, had been changed to colour light signalling.

Really impressive work, I wish I could actually draw in 3d, let alone do all the work you have.

Rather like Manna, there are a couple of things, which may not be possible to change
but in most places, the points are not open in the correct direction.

also on the second station, many of the passengers are not on the platform, but rather floating.

I also think that the loco would not set off from a station if the signal was not raised(GNR somersault or not)


But fantastic work, really interesting to see,

thanks

Paul
