Zentralstellwerk Duisburg Hbf

The Signalling Centre Duisburg Hbf is a hybrid between S59 and S60 type of signal panels. This shows the dispatchers various old and new forms of signalling. Some indications are available in S59 that are not in S60 and the other way around.

Also two remote control areas are included in the panel. These show similar, but less technical information about routes and signals. Even more of a challenge to work with!

This panel went out of service in the summer of 2014. It is now a piece of history…

This simulation is prepared for linking up with line operations to Oberhausen Hbf, Düsseldorf-Unterrath/Düsseldorf Hbf that will be released in the future.

  • 5 time table points are included.
  • Complete 1:1 simulation of the original panel of the type Sp Dr S 60/S59 including all buttons!
  • Zentralblock-System and Automatic Block System
  • ZNP 801 train number descriptor system
  • Group buttons on panel and in separate window.
  • Special zoom window
  • High Speed trains with LZB Cabsignalling on the high speed line to Düsseldorf
  • Day and night brightness of signals with dimmer and bell.
  • Logging printer with sound.
