The SP electronics department have laser-cut a section of panel for the purpose of testing the simulator electronics. A video of the cutting is also available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lP6eTy8ovQk&feature=youtu.be

Thanks to Reading rLab for all their work on this! http://rlab.org.uk/

Some adjustments have been made at the edges to make it work as a stand-alone and also to get a variation of features. For example, the crossovers at Wootton Bassett West aren't there, and 164 signal has been shown as an auto with a (proved) replacement switch in order to get that in. DM81 has had a (non-proved) auto switch added. One of the Swindon Station signals (SN.42 I think) has been shown on the very left hand side to get one reversible signal in.

The mini diagrams in the bottom left are for the points detection (left) and the track circuits clear/occupied (right).
