What works

Nearly all features work from a plain installation. Multiplayer has been used successfully as client and host in 6+ player sessions.

I have significantly tested the Carlisle, King's Cross and Waterloo sims.

What does not

  • Broken: [Wine 3.17-present] Sliders for adjusting Failure options in the Options window are broken.
    Bug reported as Wine bug #46004.
  • Broken: A small number of simulations will crash with Protection errors, or lock up entirely. This happens regularly with Carlisle. I have not been able to diagnose whether this is a Wine or SimSig issue.
    Mitigation: Regular autosaves!


  • Broken: Right click menu for train control on the new HTML-based Train List [F2] window does not appear. Additionally, a harmless error message appears on opening the window.
    Workaround: use the Legacy train list option.

What was not tested

Many of the other sims.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source
