    My father's side of the family is from Newcastle-upon-Tyne (why aye man etc) but that's a coincidence! It might be where I get my resistance to the cold from.

    The above is why I am no longer interested in being DTG's customer. Quantity over quality. Rather than have a handful of routes that are rivet-perfect and full of things to do, they have a pile of...

    Nah, it's a very old nickname that I came up in a big rush in a chatroom and ended up stuck with it in a number of other places including here (I've been on this site since the launch of MSTS, just...

    Run8 only became the day-consuming thing it did for me because of the MP. Unjamming the network after previous players left it in a proper old state was a lot of fun, as was cleaning up the receiving...

    I forgot to mention earlier - it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance as well, Bruce, you're another familiar name.

    @Vern If you ever fancy a fairly quick* and relaxing ride, take the Texas...

    I believe a great many people, myself included, owe Vern a debt of gratitude for his efforts with his site and spreading the word about the nascent train simulator genre, and in English (as opposed...

    Indeed, I think I made a second visit later on and you were gone, so I sat with a certain fat controller who played the role IRL.

    This was all at least one lifetime ago as far as I'm concerned,...

    My first job on the railway was customer relations for Arriva Trains Wales, and we would occasionally get a spare shift to go and learn more about the company's operations beyond answering...

    On the contrary, Bruce: Vern and I have been acquainted IRL and are former colleagues. I won't give more details without his OK.

    Sent you a PM with an email to try - I had the same issues trying to validate when I joined two years ago, they responded directly and kindly sent a special link that worked.

    KUID was "KoolThingz Unique Identifier" because part of the idea was to have limited-edition versions of the digital models to collect and trade, right? An idea way ahead of its time, given we now...

    The Western Star 49X on the previous page might be more to your liking, they are a brand renowned for their toughness.

    The last one i played was TRS2010, and it still felt very much like the same model railway business that we first had back in 2001 with CE (I have it too, thanks to Vern spreading the word) even with...

    Elite doesn't do it for me any more, it became painfully obvious how much smoke and mirrors the whole thing is, and how little influence you actually have in what happens to the game world. I could...

    Have you noticed that one gets this feeling because every sim seems to lack in some area?

    Run8 is a comprehensive experience insofar as you have proper driving, yards, routes and dispatching, and...

    By chance, I found there is another means of editing the sounds in ATS/ETS2 if you only want to swap out a sound file for another, using the FMOD Extractor tool. By using it, and a bit more help on...

    Canada has it happening, too. Bombardier made some very well regarded products (the bilevel coach first made for GO Transit is now widely used across North America) but also did serious damage to...

    Good one, Bruce. I got that on a DVD of the famous "Terminus" documentary about Waterloo station, along with the classic London-Brighton in four minutes, and another about installing colour lights...

    It's worse than that - if you do the Sandpatch scenarios and save, it also resets all your DPUs so when you come back in, you have to go back and configure them again or you won't have enough oomph...

    This seems to be a theme in German sims (and other games) - the world is extremely bright, sterile and clean. In strategy games, especially some of the older ones that used pre-rendered graphics, it...
