    The MSTS Activity Editor was so inconsistent and finicky with AI traffic. On some routes, like MLT's Roger's Pass, I could throw down a bunch of AI trains, set up passing paths on every siding, and everything would just work itself out regardless of timing. A lot of other routes were a different story, though.

    F7 came and took the cars for me. But this was the third time I did it. I made a mistake the first 2 times.
    I read on the official forum, workround is to actually stop with the rear or as near possible rear of your train at the shunt/divide markers. I'm about to try again doing that.

    I'm too damn tired to operate the loco after all this running up and down.
    The union needs to look into this, quick smart!
    I have felt that way a time or two. Other times I enjoy getting up and getting out for a while. So what would a software vendor do to improve that? Knowing we are about to walk it, my first suggestion would be to put some interesting scenery along the path. I don't know - maybe like an alligator climbs up out of the river suddenly. Or some interesting bird calls in the soundtrack.
    The issue I have with sending the Artificial fat ass out to do it is -- what would I be doing during that time? While "it" is out there doing it? I think I would rather walk than sit waiting.

    cheers

    A fast-forward button and the option to use it if one so wished.

    After experiencing what Snowrunner has to offer, plus the excellent value Season Passes, it will be very hard for me to go back to anything in TSW, let alone pay £25 for mediocre DLC. Over at the DTG forum they are positively salivating over Cathcart Circle, 20 miles (if that) of suburban route and one train. Even more boring than East Coastaway which I refunded and got put towards, wait for it... Snowrunner!

    Ha ha! No Bruce, it is an extreme haulage game that requires a great deal of strategy and thought. One of the best titles I've played in years, totally addictive.
