    My long-standing favourite is Jim Ward's fabulous free-lance Port Ogden and Northern v11. It includes lots of wyes and return loops so you can fool around as long as you like - or until you run out...

    How to Construct a Railway in 1910

    (Didn't find a subforum for miscellaneous babbling, so... if I may...)

    This book from 1910 might be fun to read and perhaps even give a tip or two.

    Getting Rid of the Moon

    Is there any easy way to make the Moon disappear (or invisible or completely transparent, whatever) because it's far too big to look good? Renaming moon.ace to moon.anythingelse didn't work.

    Better brakes for RDC

    I'm fiddling around with the Australian version of Budd RDC. I can live with its lazy acceleration but its lack of braking power keeps annoying. It may be realistic but compared with the workhorse...

    Getting rid of Acela's clinks

    Is there any easy way to remove the constant clink-clink-clink sound - like a hammer on an anvil - of Acela and some other rolling stock? It pretty much destroys the fun of high speed driving.

    Stops Not Recognized on Non-Default Routes

    That's happened to me too. The best way to get over the coupler-breaking switches is to turn the throttle completely off and perhaps brake just a bit using the loco brakes.
