    Ladies and Gentlemen!

    I am honored to be able to finally present to you my new Northern-Trans-Pennine/Huddersfield Line signalling guide! Here it is!

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1R4yOOxmamldGRVgr9rPmwTvLOendH5CiRfQ2zx_wLS0/edit?usp=sharing

    I hope you enjoy the new style of guides with more in-game photos!

    Tell me what you think about it.

    If you want to get informed of new guides being worked on as soon as development starts I recommend joining our small discord group https://discord.gg/jRup7wX.

    Cheers!
    Prof.

    Thanks so much Prof! Much appreciated. I'm not very familiar with the British signaling and this will be quite handy.

    Hi together,

    because I want to drive without the Hud I made myself a speedtable for the NTP route. At the moment its for the way from Manchester to Leeds. I will do one for the opposite direction as well. Feel free to edit and use it as you want. No guarantee its 100% correct.

    Best regards

    Julian

    Thanks Julian! I too prefer to operate without the HUD, but some speed signs appear missing, and those signs that are there are sometimes difficult to read. This looks like a great tool to have.

    Nice guide. Any chance of including some of the ground signals that crop up sometimes- limit of shunt etc?

    Great guide Julian. Thanks for sharing. I like to drive HUD free too. I’m currently compiling a fairly detailed bug report (supporting pics and map locations) with reference to missing speed posts which I hope to get over to DTG pre Christmas. Hopefully they can then easily insert the posts in the patch

    As always the Prof provides :D

    As a total lost cause when it comes to Semaphore Signaling i appreciate your effort in putting these together sir .

    Why is it PZB and LZB make total sense to me yet Semaphores do not.... sigh

    Puffing Nora I apologize for not including the ground signals. I am a bit busy this week although I will be getting on it from tomorrow. I'll make sure to notify everyone of updates

    ASRGT LOL haha. It's different, I understand.

    julian2 Thank you for the speed limits table! I also love driving without HUD and this will be very helpful

    Cheers,
    Prof

    Absolutely no need for an apology Prof, I was only concerned in case someone with no experience of such signalling came a cropper because of them. They are easy to miss if youre not looking for them, and quite confusing if you don't understand what they are representing. I quite like them (I think theyre cute little signals) and will be modelling them on my little 00 gauge layout here in my country kingdom ;)
    Edit- you can see an example of them in my little picture just to the left.

    The banner repeater signals could also possibly do with a mention ;)

    Hi Prof,

    I've updated the thread title to correct the typo "Huddersford" to "Huddersfield".

    Best, Steve

    I had a few signalling anomalies when driving - 18:48 Man Vic - Leeds (Class 45) - from Morley I was following yellow signals, all the way to Leeds, not abnormal as you might think but about to pass a single yellow I could see a signal yellow ahead too, I then had a double yellow, followed by consecutive yellows all the way into Leeds, now I wasn’t following anything, so thought it was bizarre!
