    That little yellow put-put reminds me of a Trackmobile more than anything. The last TM we had was a Whiting, 50hp 4cyl, flathd. It seemed to move cars easier than Derail Valley unit. Last job I preformed in DV was to move 8 loaded tanks & it struggled very hard on what seemed slightest grade. Lots of fun though.

    Like DRS it needs and editor with real world functionality.
    It's a transport game, Mike, not a serious simulation.

    With a lot of simulation elements, but still a fictional world.

    Now you tell me Bruce, late to the party with the info again.

    I tried to re-install Run 8 earlier but all my purchase ID's are not working.

    So i am waiting on a reply to my email from their support.

    This is why I have maintained that Run 8 and it's way of adding content would be ideally suited to Steam, one stop painless install and no worrying about lost or expired licenses for a very expensive piece of software. (I usually get flamed by the faithful for suggesting that, though).

    Back to Derail Valley, not so impressed with their new economic model featured in YT clip 5. I think that could make things over complex for the casual user, better to have gone with something like ETS2 where it is possible to go bankrupt but very difficult.

    I don't like Steam, Vern. But it would solve this problem.

    Surely when something is purchased, the ID should be life time.

    I have all the info here backed up to txt files, they just don't bloody work.

    Clip 5 released is it. If it introduces economy modelling then i am deffo out buddy.

    EDIT: Email from Run 8 support received....................... "We suffered a problem with the old licensing database about a month ago"

    New information provided and Run 8 up and running. Good support thanks guys.

    Glad it was sorted but... shouldn't they be emailing customers with the relevant details?

    Thanks Vern, well i don't want to make a fuss and the email did arrive in my inbox at 00:13 hrs BST.

    So i received the help i asked for quickly.

    Just realised 10 yrs on forum as Haverfordwest and not a hint of a ban.

    Must be a world record for me.
