    I haven't gotten to it yet in the overhauled game but the thing that kept tricking me up with steam loco in the old Derail Valley was that you pushed the throttle forward to apply power instead of...

    Reminds me of when I did the guard's school in 2003 and one of the tutors decided to demonstrate fitting the emergency knuckle coupler to a Scharfenburg on an EMU but thought he could carry it...

    One advantage of our 3'6" gauge was you didn't need to get between the vehicles. Watching experienced guards or shunters coupling up on the move was always 'interesting' though, leaning over the...

    I quite like the new Derail Valley apart from the name, but that is no worse than some of the names modelers gave their model railroads back in the old issues of Model Railroader magazine and I can...

    After watching the video my question to DTG would be how do you sleep at night charging money for this? Looks like it was rushed out with enough of it looking finished and working that the usual DTG...

    Does anyone know if those bits that are inaccessible in the so called free roam mode are used in any of the scenarios or are they just completely wasted space.

    Maybe DTG would say they don't have the license to do GO rollingstock, but the 'we don't have the license to do whatever' excuse is one I don't buy. Take BNSF for example, no other train sim has...

    True, which is why I haven't bought or played any TSW DLC for a couple of years either.

    I'll look at the reviews of the new route, if anyone here gets it and posts any, but I'm not expecting...

    Two points.

    1. I wonder what freight cars will come with the route? Looks like just a covered hopper, tank car and auto rack, probably all in CN colours. When you see a 100 car north American...

    I thought it looked interesting so I downloaded it to play around with on my day off.

    When you start the game your locomotive is sitting on an isolated section of track at the logging camp. To use...

    I got that months ago and deleted the shortcut to the site if that's how they want to be. I used to be a member but my logon disappeared a couple of years ago and I never tried to get back on because...

    I agree and I'd add that some rolling stock from the 70's era would be nice. All there is at the moment is the SD45-2 in the Santa Fe bookend and bicentennial schemes that don't fit in anywhere...

    I'm not sure Run8 is dead either. I don't take part in any multi player sessions but Run8 is still my primary train sim and I'm sure there are many like me sitting on their own having fun...

    Perhaps something like that could be added as a branch line off one of the existing routes in the same manner as the recent Arvin and Oak Creek add on. If it wasn't prototypical those that didn't...

    But it's rather pointless researching operations on the line if all you can do on the TSW route is play the half dozen or so scenarios provided by DTG over and over again.

    When they stop churning...

    Probably like me just too engrossed with running trains to get around to taking them.

    Unlike some of the other sims that are not much good for anything but taking pretty screenshots there is a lot...

    The Galaxy Express is based on a JNR C62 class 4-6-4.

    Micro Ace did an N scale version back in 2009.

    Is train driving really so boring to non-railfans and railwaymen that all this other stuff has to be included?

    I don't think I would be getting out of the cab to cut up a fallen tree on the tracks...

    The shift-F2 menu allows you to only filter locomotives by roadname so true, you can filter out Conrail units but that wasn't what I was getting at.

    For example if you select ATSF for the SD45-2...

    Every now and then they should have a crew run late or go off sick at the last moment and the train sits there for a random period of time while a relief crew is found.

    What is needed to accomplish this would be a way to filter locomotives and cars by era as well as type. I feel the same about the Santa Fe SD45-2s in the bicentennial and 1970s bookend schemes...

    I keep wondering if there is some hidden portal you can walk through and find yourself in the real simulator instead of the one they gave us.

    I must admit you get a lot of locos and rollingstock with the Cornish route, it now takes me five minutes longer searching through all the GWR and BR stuff for a route I used once. It's a pity the...
