    The new machine is on order, pretty much as proposed. I'd invest in a better video card, if one were available. I do have the capacity...

    Speaking of monitors, MSTS comes in 4x3 format, new monitors are 16x9. Is there a way to 4x3ize the screen when using MSTS? And, regards OR, I'm guessing it comes in 16x9 format??
    For MSTS and OR,...

    Finally retiring the old XP machine

    My recent video card downgrade has proved to be the last straw.
    So, I'm in the market for a new desktop, presumably a Windows 10 machine. My plan is to stick with MSTS, and venture into Open Rail....
