    Flying Scotsman and the rest of the class were a joke in reality.
    As to TSW4 i uninstalled it yesterday. It's the same old rubbish, with a few extra bolt ons. Which are not exactly exciting or revolutionary.
    I have no respect for DTG as a developer, none what so ever. Difference between them and Run8 developers and the DRS lapioware developer, are light years apart.

      I'll have a look to see if that hole is still there on the Hamilton Oakville Sub route, thanks for mentioning it, the area to explore look very good, so, will see if I can get into it.

      Cheerz. Steve.
      Steve, I've played Run8 with a decent number of people from overseas, Run8 seems to offer them something other sims don't even despite the difference in equipment.

        I have respect for all the train sim developers, it's not an easy niche to make a living in, and customers aren't always the easiest to please.

          In my world respect is earned, not just given. DTG, N3V have done nothing to gain it.

            Run 8 is very good but they really need to up the graphic standards along with a complete overhaul of their e-commerce system (i.e. it needs to be customer friendly).
            It also needs to diversify a bit with support for timetabled passenger operations and the ability to spawn trains at a specific time.
            Also some older vintage equipment would not go amiss along with getting into some all new territory - there were rumours one time of an Alaska route but that seems to have bitten the dust, but domething like the CP transcon across BC and Alberta would certainly rekindle my enthusiasm (and wallet).

              Unfortunately they seem to be treading water when it comes to these two aspects of their business.....certainly their shopfront needs modernising. It's painful trying to make multiple purchases.

                I am still using TS2004 but am ready to move on. I bought TSW years ago but hated it because you had to walk everywhere. You even had to get out of the train to change the points !
                I don't want to spend my time walking. I want to drive a train anywhere I want with whatever rolling stock I want. I want to click on a map to change the points. I want TOTAL free roam withput walking ! Can TSW4 do this ? If so, I might be interested because the graphics TS2004 gives me is a bit ancient (given the PC I now have).

                  If by TS2004 you mean Trainz 2004 then that is an entirely different game franchise from DTG's Train Sim World.

                  As regards TSW, unless the scenario specifically mandates it you can switch points from the 2D map view (9 key on PC). There is also an option in TSW4 to have manual points set to the required route automatically (invisible ground staff) though this can have unpredictable results. Don't forget if you are out the cab, there is an undocumented key command - Ctrl-0 as in zero, which will teleport you straight back.

                      I'm running in free roam on the Antelope line with the EMD F 125 and double decker Metrolink carriages and I can't get the doors to unlock and open. I've tried pressing Y and U, nothing. There doesn't appear to be any buttons to do it in the cab. How can I open the doors please ?

                        Well worst case scenario you can go into exterior view and move along the train clicking each door to open and close. But must admit, having done a few AVL runs now, never had this problem.

                          Re-installing TSW4 as I write- haven't run it since late last summer ('23). How is it currently? When is TSW5 arriving, does anyone here want to speculate?

                            No speculation, but i can say without any doubt. It will not be installed here anytime in the near future.

                              Too much of a console toy for me...Train Sim Classic is head and shoulders, or should that be ballast and rails, above TSW(fill in your own number). Yes it is pretty, but it lacks something vital - not routes, or stock (well not too badly off there) just the general feel of it. I somehow expect it to morph into a third person shooter when I am walking around trying to find my way into a cab etc. As for steam engines, well you can more or less forget that...yes 2 exist but... Notable that all the advertising portrays stock at crazy angles and clearly high speed...just about says it all.

                                As always, a mixture of good and not so good. I seem to keep being drawn back to it a few times a week, in between a diet of TSC, ATS and Run 8. As regards whether we get TSW5 this year, well I would say the tea leaves are definitely pointing that way despite many of the TSW4 features not yet been implemented.
