    UK Trainsim dead? - Never received account creation confirmation email

    Hello,

    I recently tried to create an account with uktrainsim.com in order to acquire the following files I have linked down below. However, after nearly seven days since creating my account, I have not received the account activation email from the site admins. Looking on the forums, its seems that this has been a topic of discussion that has been growing for some time. However, I wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced this problem as well? Along with any potential workarounds which you may have found to gain access to the site?

    Thanks!

    Have you checked your spam folder?

    There are NO workarounds.

      Yep. Been checking it regularly since I attempted to sign up.

        Sadly there doesn’t appear to be much life over there. The site’s original owner/admin is now a high ranking officer at Dovetail Games and presumably no longer involved in day to day operation. I believe one of his family members took over but from what I read elsewhere, their heart is not really in it.

          Not sure they are taking new registrations. I know they are only doing monthly premier membership for the downloads.

          I needed downloads last month and only option was a month for the pay service. Long term future of the site, is probably in doubt.

            That must've been a demotion, then.

                Well, in that case I do hope that somehow the files on that site survive whatever future awaits them. Always a shame to see a bunch of freeware vanish from the web. For now though, I have at least been able to make do with a similar version of the 225 from treinpunt.nl, which had one wearing a GWR livery.

                Thank you all for helping to clear the air.

                Regards,

                    Good afternoon.
                    The site www.uktrainsim.com is still working correctly.
                    At September 04 I download the last file inserted on Library (we must have an user name and a password).
                    Best regards.

                        Which is the problem the OP is describing. He cannot get his username and password on the system as it appears it has to be approved by a "live" person, not an automated system and no one is home, so to speak.

                          Yes it's unfortunate but nothing lasts forever. I have recently uploaded my wagon and carriage models to Train Sim Safe House - https://tsforum.forumotion.net/ - as I have assumed that UK TrainSim will slowly wither and die!

                            Just sent them a direct email stating that I would like them to either activate my account and provide me access to the file library, or to delete the account credentials I used to sign up for the site. Not holding my breath about getting a response, though I really do find it quite s****y that they would not bother to stop people from signing up, and instead let dozens of emails and personal information just accumulate on a server/site run by an individual who doesn't even want it anymore.


                            Sighhh....well as I said before, thanks to everyone for your help, and here's to hoping that the files on UKTS somehow find a away to survive its inevitable demise.
