    But, you have other trees like Jacarandas and fabulous Starlings like the Mettallic one, far better than what we have, matey, don't knock it.

    Even they are imported, Steve.
    (South American, I believe).

    As for the Starling, well, I wouldn't swap a Lyrebird or Bellbird for one.

    You will buy it Bruce, it has been ordained.

    Are there any actual differences to v1, or is it just a name change with a scenario tool added.

    That's a good point, Mike. What, if any, improvements or additions have been made?

    Knowing DTG Bruce, it's you pay your money and get exactly what you had last time.

    Managed to get a scenario to work after a fashion.

    As i am sure i chose the green Brush Type 4. But ended up with the blue Class 47/4.

    AI is easy to add, not sure what the limit would be though on numbers of AI services.

    From what I understand with the AI generation, there is no spawning so you have to start at suitable locations en route, pretty much similar to TS. If I read Rudolf's guide correctly they can have the same end point, presumably just stack up behind each other.

    Edit: Oh and as with MSTS, AI can only start after the scenario commencement ie. player train start time.

    I'm looking forward to when (if) we can start producing proper timetable runs.

    All correct observations, Vern.

    I was really pee'd off. I wanted to start from Padd plat 8, but from there you cannot reach Reading.

    It is not given as an end point from there, which is absolutely crazy.

    Which means, Oxford, Cheltenham and Birmingham AI services. Cannot use it as a start point, losing any sort of realism.

    Amazing how the shine just evaporates from a DTG product. In such a short space of time.
