Zentralstellwerk Heidelberg Hbf

Heidelberg Hbf is a classic panel that was replaced in 2006 by a electronic system.

The simulation is set in 1996 while the Heidelberg Shunting Yard was still in service and many freight and local commuter trains filled the timetable. This makes Heidelberg fairly busy…
