    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.
    Sounds good then Vern, thanks. That's what I'm looking for, something to change things up with (i.e., UK/EU routes with varied landscapes) despite having a few routes on Run 8. Picked up the two freight add-ons for the MML so I'll probably get stuck in this week. Cheers.

      The MML has come along nicely since first release. New management at Skyhook transformed it from a dud into quite the gem. If you run the HST be sure to leave the cab doors open, the Paxman prime mover sounds are great.

      Another good UK route is Blackpool to Ormskirk from Just Trains with the infamous Pacer DMU and a very loud Class 47. To get the best from it though, really need the other two classic BR routes - NTP and TVL plus the Class 20 and 31 and Heavy Freight (for Class 40) DLC’s which all layer in.

      I quite like the German stuff too, the more you have the more it layers. But avoid the 204 shunting loco and the 187 electric as they were not well made. Although it’s a modern loco and not usually to my taste, the 193 Vectron is very nice.

        So how far does the MML go Vern, does it actually clear the platforms at St Panc 🤣.
        The other UK stuff you mention, i own it all. But Blackpool is way to short, so no reason here to re-install buddy.
        I have DTG's MML with the workshop extension to Leicester, which is excellent quality (the extension).
        I have JT's full MML, so basically in two QD's i can drive the full length of the MML and have more flexibilty in how i want to play the game (TSC).

          That's the only drawback. It's Leicester to Derby and Nottingham triangle. It should really have gone to Sheffield.

            Oh dear the usual DTG segment of a route, stuck in the middle of nowhere. Must be about 40 miles then is it buddy. Not that i know much outside of my usual GWR\WR sphere. I keep trying to replace that god awful version of Reading with the fly over, in the Padd - Pen JT route. But do not have the skills to join up the deleted pieces of track. Weird as the SouthWestern Expressways Reading JT route has the older version of Reading station and the diesel depot in the correct place.

                I'm going to give Skyhook a bunch of credit for continuing to update MML. I love the addition of the aggregate cars and oil cans. Good work, folks. I also picked up JT's Blackpool route and started to work it a bit. So far it's quite nice. Nice change of pace. I'd seen somewhere someone mentioned a signals lighting mod for the UK routes but I've forgotten what it was called, anyway does anyone know if it works on Blackpool? Cheers

                      While the current DLC sale is on, I've managed to pick up a few bits to add to the collection. The Fife route is interesting, especially after adding the signal lighting mod, and the general community mod. I like the addition of Fawx's re-worked timetable. Added another Scotrail route, and some German stuff (e.g., the 187 despite it being vilified for having shoddy sounds) to add some more variety to some of the routes. Wallet now securely put away.
