Each location in the layout has a detailed set of track diagrams that provide a variety of useful information

The  Getting Started  guide below gives a summary of what is available.

To display this information click any Location Index graphic, or go to the bottom of the page for all the session links (all links will open in this window).
Getting Started:
  1. If you have already closed the opening message window then the first step is to pause the session by pressing the  P  key.
  2. If you decide to set the session clock to a different starting time then follow the instructions shown in the Orders section
  3. Next locate your loco. Either:-
    • Open the Finder Tool (press  Ctrl   F ) and type, in the Name field, the name of the loco, in this case SAR 621 (or just 621 which should be enough), then click the tick icon, OR
    • Open the Driver List (bottom left of the screen) and then scroll through the list to find either:-
    • the loco name (SAR 621) OR
    • the driver icon (named Driver 621) - this is a non-animated icon
    then click the drivers Eye icon Driver Eye.png to take control of the loco.

    • the Tab IN Grey.png tab lists all active industries and their commodities.
