    Working fine for me 30 minutes after last post here. .......not that there's much to go there for if you're interested in MSTS or OR .

    Once Matt left for DTG the vast majority of UK Rail Sim Fans all switched to RW/TS20XX . MSTS content in the library or forum is rarer than hens teeth nowadays

    It's a shame because there are some great modellers and route builders specialising in the UK scene and still producing high quality work but RW/TS20XX has completely killed the MSTS payware scene.

    That is actually technically correct. Since it is short for "locomotives", signifying that some letters have been missed out by using the " ' " is correct usage.

    Plural of loco = locos. Plural of locomotive=locomotive. Different words.You should enjoy yourself at UK Trainsim.
    You also need some English lessons latimers !!!!.

    Take a look at this if you do not believe me:http://www.eng-lang.co.uk/apostrophe_rules.htm.BTW Lateagain.we are broke,and getting further into debt and politicians fantasising about HS2,Hinkley Point etc. ( don't get me talking about letting the Chinese into this country ) and it is Stalinist where one is not allowed to express views which don't follow the "party line" amd we have changes made to the nature of this country without the electorate being consulted.Remenber that infamous election losing meeting between Brown and that "Bigoted Woman".Also plural of "coach" is "coaches" not "coach's".Explain that.It was for telling the truth before the crash of 2008 that I was banned from UKTrainsim.I told them that it was coming and if they thought things were bad then they should just wait for the aftermath.Sorry to our US friends to go on about UK matters but the truth has to be told,like it or not.

    Hi ragtimer,
    Although I tend to agree with you concerning Hinkley Point and HS2, you are completely wrong regarding your command of the English language, unless, of course, things have changed since I was at school! Also, that link doesn't go anywhere because the ".BTW" is taken as part of the URL - you should always add a space after a web address. It's an interesting site which confirms the views of Geoff and Bob (and myself!). Your comment about "coaches" and "coach's" doesn't make sense - it can't be the latter because "coach" is not an abbreviation, so there aren't any missing letters - but the website explains "s" and "es" !

    Also, I don't know what English grammar has to do with you being banned from UKTS ??

    Cheers,
    Ged

    Wrong again on all counts! Check your Oxford Dictionary.

    Just because I now live in New Zealand doesn't mean my education in the English language is lacking. I am a product of the English Grammar School system and studied English in university.

    What are your qualifications?

    Ok guys, let's not start flexing our egos and such here.. Take it to PMs please, no-one wants to hear it, and you're gonna get the mods involved if this progresses.
