    Perhaps something like that could be added as a branch line off one of the existing routes in the same manner as the recent Arvin and Oak Creek add on. If it wasn't prototypical those that didn't...

    But it's rather pointless researching operations on the line if all you can do on the TSW route is play the half dozen or so scenarios provided by DTG over and over again.

    When they stop churning...

    Probably like me just too engrossed with running trains to get around to taking them.

    Unlike some of the other sims that are not much good for anything but taking pretty screenshots there is a lot...

    The Galaxy Express is based on a JNR C62 class 4-6-4.

    Is train driving really so boring to non-railfans and railwaymen that all this other stuff has to be included?

    I don't think I would be getting out of the cab to cut up a fallen tree on the tracks...

    The shift-F2 menu allows you to only filter locomotives by roadname so true, you can filter out Conrail units but that wasn't what I was getting at.

    For example if you select ATSF for the SD45-2...

    Every now and then they should have a crew run late or go off sick at the last moment and the train sits there for a random period of time while a relief crew is found.

    What is needed to accomplish this would be a way to filter locomotives and cars by era as well as type. I feel the same about the Santa Fe SD45-2s in the bicentennial and 1970s bookend schemes...

    I keep wondering if there is some hidden portal you can walk through and find yourself in the real simulator instead of the one they gave us.

    I must admit you get a lot of locos and rollingstock with the Cornish route, it now takes me five minutes longer searching through all the GWR and BR stuff for a route I used once. It's a pity the...

    Back in GWR days when the railways took a bit of pride in everything would the St Ives branch have been so overgrown you could hardly see the track in places. Then there are the semaphore signal...

    To be honest I didn't think to try that. If I'm a passenger and the train is being driven in AI mode why should I have to?

    Passengers aren't allowed to wander around outside the station but can...

    I tried to get out the front of Huddersfield station to see if I could recreate some views from when I was there in September, they have modelled the impressive frontage of the station but I could...

    Felix came to Huddersfield in 2011, if set in the present day or later you would have to include her apprentice Bolt the black kitten. Didn't see much of her when I was there because the station...

    Queensland Railways (porter, station master, guard and for the last 12 years driver) rather than BR but in my travels around the world I usually find railwaymen are the same all over.

    Yes, when I joined the railways in 1979 as a porter the Assistant Station Master nicknamed me Tiny Tim because of my long hair, I don't see anyone who looks like that yet.

    I can't seem to locate...

    Just had a quick drive from Manchester to Stalybridge in service mode, everything about as I expected. Some observations.

    Not many scenarios, are they providing less with each route?

    A couple of years ago on holiday in Japan I spent a few minutes watching a friend try to work out why an ATM wouldn't accept his driver's license.

    Something along the lines of this possible new feature in the upcoming Run8 V3 upgrade is what is needed instead of having everything run to a prewritten script. "For the Single-Players, there is an...

    True, but I'm now stepping it up to daily just in case.

    The same thing happens in my part of the world. That planned chaos that is railway operations everywhere is precisely the thing that it seems like TSW with its scripted scenarios will never be able...

    Darn it, I'm going to be checking the Run8 website every day now until V3 is released.

    The only train sim were updates actually improve the sim.:)

    That would be something DTG could add to TSW, taxis. We have several train crew rosters in Brisbane that include regular taxi rides, some well over 100km. Spend 1 and a half hours in a taxi just...
