Power Signal Box Herzogenrath is a smaller panel with a modern box of the Sp Dr S 600 type. This is a further development of the German Railways after the successful Sp Dr S 60 type. The S 600 type of boxes provide more functionality and safety for the dispatchers because of new mechanisms designed to prevent dangerous situations.
Additionally, the Control Monitor is available in this sim. The Control Monitor is a system for issuing dispatching commands using a keyboard instructions, and helps in signal boxes where part of the area of responsibility is remotely-operated.
Herzogenrath is a good signal box to start with if you are new to the Sp Dr S 600 panels with the Control Monitor.
