    However I know from my time in the Provincial/Wales and West etc. control that the BSI couplers on the Sprinter DMU's are very prone to damage. Quite often had several running round...

    Yes it was probably okay when the rig was built with Windows 7 but the overheads of Win 10 and modern software mean 16Gb much better.

    Anyhow RAM type identified (I hope) and an 8Gb stick ordered...

    Depending on the routes though, you may still need MSTS for some of the core files and global objects.

    That's because, for the most part, having a different view is tolerated here and the forum is not dominated by white knights and fanboys who feel software developers can do no wrong.
