    You lean on him, Steve..... and I'll lean on him too. Then we'll all stagger down the road to the pub.

    No way Bruce, you are the tough Australian. Steve and myself, get to lean on you buddy.

    Off topic again, as it is 75 Anniversary of D-Day, i was reading an article earlier.

    Never realised before that the ANZACS landed on the Normandy beaches. With the rest of the allied forces.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt

    Not saying it's not worth it, but £55 is a lot of money to shell out in one go whatever your financial status. Everyone has the top price they will pay for a particular item, whether it's a car, item of grocery or a train sim!

    We don't equate a "cost per unit" when it comes to computer gaming; this isn't model railroading, where one has to fork out $$$ for every item required.

    Ten-thousand scenarios and fourteen-hundred stock/livery combos?
    Maybe there aren't quite those numbers when it comes to MSTS, Open Rails, TS20XX, Trainz, BVE, TSW or Run 8 but the amount of freeware available is vast.

    No, it's not a psychological thing......it is definitely a case of "Why should I spend AUS$100 on ZuSi when for half that amount I can buy more stuff for Run 8?"
