Wuppertal Hbf

 

The Power Signal Box of Wuppertal Hbf (Central Station) is located in the narrow valley of the Wupper river at the narrowest spot. The station might not be large, but there is a lot of traffic and two train series turn around regularly. It’s also a spot where the trains might change from the express line to the local line. It all depends on the cooperation between your two neighbours.

This simulation is meant/designed as a connector between the Simulation Wuppertal-Oberbarmen and Wuppertal-Vohwinkel. It CAN run as a stand alone, with only a minor oddity on the commuter line from Wuppertal-Oberbarmen. (The announcement time is short). This is due to the sim working better while connected to one or both other sims.
