Here is a link to the location of this signal box from the OpenRailwaymap. This map provides current information.

The simulation may show a slightly different layout. This has to do with when the simulation displays the signal box.

Because this simulation is very complex and is part of a larger platform in development, we would like to keep intensive contact with our customers and offer each user the latest version available. It is therefore that registration and use of the license key is obligatory.

The Signalling Centre Essen Hbf is a very large panel. It actually is divided in two distinctive parts with a few connections. The light grey part is the commuter traffic, the dark gray part the long distance traffic.

This simulation is prepared for linking up with line operations to Gelsenkirchen, Bochum and Mülheim (Ruhr)  those will be released in the near future.
