    Yes you really have to sift through the BBC commentary. A "loco at each end" in reality was 2 HST power cars either end of a 2 + 4 formation. "Changing lines" is either referring to single line...

    Both the driver and guard (conductor) were killed so no GSM-R emergency call and a handful of passengers on the train who must have been in a pretty bad way, so there may well not have been anyone in...

    Latest pictures on the BBC are grim.

    Driver amongst the dead (RIP).

    IIRC at Ladbroke Grove the leaking diesel fuel atomised and caught fire so yes it can happen.

    I have read on another source there are confirmed fatalities, the power car caught fire (quite unusual for diesel to flash) and one of the coaches is upside down.

    Reminds me of working with DEM in the train sims, when the satellite has mistaken buildings and trees for ground level and you have lumps and bumps instead of level terrain.

    From what I've read elsewhere, what you will actually be streaming is data that tells the sim how to draw the scenery, rather than a host of custom texture files. So the bandwidth might not be that...

    Funny you should say that about Farm Sim '17, I too enjoyed the forestry more than the somewhat grinding nature of servicing the fields. I never got as far as loading logs on to trains on the farms...
