    Deer strike

    Never seen this before, after 14 years of trainsimming. On the PRR East V2 route ... a deer ON the tracks, glances up at the oncoming train ... and stays there - does not move - as the engine runs...

    True words. I have empathy for anyone with health problems, got too many of my own these days. But that is totally irrelevant when it comes to a business transaction.

    No compatibility mode works, thanks anyway for the suggestion.

    Ged, I had seen your post but at first read had assumed that it was specific to TSM. Might be worth a try. Kudos for that, too.
