    @ 36nswgr42

    I think if you go onto the Railworks America forum, they'd given up waiting, it's been nearly 2 years that CSX:HH was released (August 2017) and many folks got fed up and lost patience, can you blame them?

    Cheerz. Steve.

    How could you even think that no-one would be interested.

    Wash your mouth out young man.

    I see the fanboys are out on UKTS, knocking down your constructive criticism, Steve. Good job I'm no longer a member over there (actually 11 years now I think!). Think this will go in the "wait for a sale" category, doesn't seem in the same league as TP - different route builder, perhaps?

    Looks as if it is a rush job for a cash grab, presumably they had Bill Gates on the phone asking for the next instalment of what they paid to licence FSX/FSW!

    Makes you wonder whether it's worth all the hassle posting screenshots and making constructive comments from a railway perspective these days Vern, can't see the wood for the trees some of them, and the ones that object the most aren't on console, they're PC users like me and many others, they're obviously quite happy accepting mediocre as standard and anything more in-depth is not even considered, it makes me bloody laugh, and they'd be the first to moan if DTG went bankrupt......

    Cheerz. Steve.

    That's excellent Bruce, thanks for posting. Is this just an Australian requirement regarding the licence, not sure if it was on the licence application form over here, as the vast majoirty of our cars are manual gearboxes by default, and have been for the last 110-ish years......

    You can take an automatic only driving licence test in the UK, Steve.

    My late ex-father-in-law only had a licence for automatic transmission cars.

    Oh, well, I stand corrected then, young man, thanks for that info.



    Don't rush for this TVL route Mike, it's bland across the whole layout, it's an arcade game for Consoles now.

    The bulkhead on the Class 37/5 has a bare amount of info. there's no fusebox, the clips are empty, the detonators and flags are just barely textured on, there's no fault lights, the battery ammeter is on its own, where's the rest of the gauges, and the biggest gaffe is that the AWS box has no ON or OFF painted on it, as per my screenshot of a real life 37, so, folks haven't a clue as to whether the lever is in the correct position, or, not, and the isolation lever on the other side of the box is supposed to be in the upright position with a seal attached and on here it's in the down position, and you can't move it with your mouse, I bet these console players haven't a clue as to what they should be doing, there's no tutorial on the AWS set up either you have to work it out for yourself later on, but, the enginesounds are good, and the horn's OK, so, everyone's happy!!!
    I could go on for hours Mike, if you have a Playstation or XBox then wait for a 50% sale, next Christmas.......

    Completely the reverse Down Here, Steve; manual vehicles, even SUV's (what we once just called "Utes" until Americanisms swept the world and blew away Aussie slang - but don't get me started on that!), are now in the minority.

    No worries Steve, he had an automatic Ford Corsair from the early 1960's (B reg i think), then a MK1 Ford Escort 1300GL from 1973.

    I really disliked driving both of them, auto transmission is not real driving to my mind.

    Many thanks for the info in regards the new route and included stock. Will most definitely give it a miss buddy.

    Mike.
