    Not a good thing, after the MS Herald of Free Enterprise demonstrated the related free-surface effect and capsized in said channel due to water ingress through improperly closed bow doors.

    If you like the sloshing, there was a game called From Dust which modelled the movement of liquid (and sand and lava) where you control a deity who can pick up and drop quantities of the above, in the hopes of manipulating the topography of islands so little tribes of worshippers can survive the extreme primeval weather. Digging channels and dams and rivers and watching the water flow down them, and miss a village, is lots of fun. Memories of sandcastles at the beach when a wave hits!

    Surely won't be on the rd. long. Looked to be non-U.S. equipment, tractor looked to be Volvo,

    Yes, it looks like a Volvo tractor unit and the trailer looks European as well. I can only imagine they left the bulkheads out so you can see the liquid sloshing from one end to another, to stop it from sloshing wouldn't convey to the viewers the excitement that their new simulator brings to the simulator world.....We need excitement and that wow factor in our Simulators, don't you agree? Now, after all this sloshing around it's time to clean my teeth and go to bed, before I get too sloshed on this wine I'm drinking......

    Cheerz. Steve.

    Why are there two identical sign boards next to each other?

    Could be bi-directional running, Bruce.

    EDIT: Yes it is, bottom right pic, signals both facing the camera.

    Not the signals, but the two signboards on the platform, Mike. Both with exactly the same info and names but facing one way.

    Silly Bruce, you have two eyes buddy. One sign for each eye.

    Seriously though, good point. Maybe a place in the platform where two sections join.

    Both have the same sign attached.

    I do like a bit of East European railway action. No interest in Western Europe though.

    Their SimBus game looks really good as well.

    Can't beat the Polish locomotives, especially the old ones, I collected hundreds of them in Trainz from various websites, along with all sorts of rolling stock and routes, they were brilliantly constructed, even the freeware ones.

    I see there is an EP07 in the screenshot selection, that looks quite good, unsure about all this despatching though, we don't do that in Britain, so, unsure what is going to happen, especially, in multiplayer mode.

    Cheerz. Steve.
