The simulation can run on a monitor with 1024×768 resolution, though we strongly encourage higher resolutions for a better simulation experience.For optimal results, you might consider having a widescreen monitor. Multiple widescreen monitors are ideal.
Microsoft .Net Framework
This computer program uses the Microsoft .NET Framework.If this is not available, it will be installed upon installation of the application.

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.
PSB Hengelo (HGL)
After the great success of Post T Arnhem 1965, Signalsoft now brings out a brand new simulation in the Post T Series of GRS-NX simulations. This time you don’t have to sit all alone on the job! You have the ability to open up a Dispatcher Office with other fellows online via the servers of Signalsoft Rail Consultancy Ltd. or via a direct link to your colleagues!
The GRS-NX Simulation of Post T Hengelo jumps a huge leap forward from the last version. The Power Signal Box in Hengelo was the longest of its type in the Netherlands and had quite a load of train traffic. The timetable is from the year 1999/2000, just before the panel was decommissioned. The timetable offers next to a fixed hourly pattern a great variation of through freight trains over the border to Germany, local freight and of course all the things that will cause delays. It’s your task to dispatch all things properly and lead your traffic safely through the area.
What’s included in the GRS-NX Simulation Post T Hengelo:
- Exact copy of the GRS-NX panel CTC functions
- VCVL (Vereenvoudigde Centrale Verkeersleiding=simplified CTC) (Mariënberg-Vroomshoop)
- 5 Stations
- 6 stopping places on the lines
- 32 platform tracks
- 225 km track length
- 153 signals
- 162 switches/points/turnouts
- 381 track sections
- 67 Level Crossings (Aki’s, Ahob’s, Aob’s)
- 500+ trains in the timetable
- 1000+ movement orders
- 610 routes
- Stop/Through operations for level crossings
- Issue Written Orders to drivers for level crossings
- Delegate issuing of written orders to despatch operators on the platforms
- Level Crossing defects
- Overhead Line Equipment operations (substations, distribution stations, connectors)
- Telerail (trainradio)
- CPZ-box (telephone)
- Platform Information Devices (PID’s)
- PID operation equipment with “Krone” punch card reading system
- Train Descriptor system (TNV)
- Dispatcher Screens (VKL)
- Modern Dispatching Time-Way Diagram with dynamic functions and conflict management
- Post 21 Track Occupation Diagram with conflict management
- Local Operations Areas
- Switch Lock local operation
- Dispatcher Office (“Multiplayer”) with up to 5 participants on one panel!
Now we can tell you a lot here, but the best thing is to try out the demo version!
The demoversion does all what the full version can do, except:
- You cannot load and save the simulation session
- You cannot work more than 20 minutes
- You cannot start a multiplayer session
Very important: in the demo version you can follow the in-simulation learning session about how to operate the basics for route setting and the simplified CTC operations (VCVL)
You also are able to review all timetable data en print it out if you wish.
