    CoalsToNewcastle (Peter Newell) coded exactly this a little time back but it gave rise to some controversy. I think that was resolved, so perhaps this work can now be adopted.

    That's a very different proposition.

    The web-server is not intended for this as it's just sending web-pages to a web browser.

    The architecture of Open Rails currently has a single Viewer module...

    Vacuum Brakes

    The MSTS add-on West Somerset has ex-GWR stock which uses vacuum braking.

    Sadly, pressing J to turn on the small ejector and create a vacuum in the train pipe doesn't work, so the vacuum is stuck...

    Hi Randy,

    I think they are related to the progress bar for loading the route. There is an algorithm which predicts how much time is left to complete the loading process.

    The next version of Open Rails v1.4 will use MonoGame rather than XNA. XNA has not been developed for a while and restricts the graphics to DirectX v9. MonoGame takes us initially to DirectX v11 so...

    Hi Rob,

    Sorry to hear this is giving trouble.

    The Great Zig-Zag Railway route is intended to be standalone and does not share files with any MSTS installation. Is your Zig-Zag Railway...

    My fault, I'm afraid, guys.

    I provided a fix so that Ctrl+9 opens the Dispatch Window in the front rather than behind the graphics window.

    That works just fine on my multi-screen desktop PC,...

    I think "distorted physics" would be best.

    The simulation would not know where your loco was on the layout, so would ignore gradient and track curvature. Also it would not be able to respect...
