People also only pay attention to the person promising the most "free" stuff, too.

Just a PSA: Big Boy will be in Chicago this weekend. Anyone in the area should definitely check it out.

Here's Big Boy's schedule for the rest of the Great Race Across the Midwest.
The journeys of Zephyr of the American West: Volume One, Two, Three, Four.

Handy maps and diagrams.

Unfortunately, it won't be in Texas like 844 was in 2012.

As some of you know, when I'm not at work, I'm a railway dog. :D
Anyone else here plays TSW?

Yes i do buddy, but only the UK addons, for both TSW and TS2019.

I am a retired railwayman and have been running all the train games, since 2001.

Good to hear, Mike! To be quite honest, I have shown these two screenshots from TSW with the Amtrak trains since we are under the ATS topic. :D I mostly play with European stuff both on TSW and TS2019 as well. I've also been a keen train simulators player since very young.... started with MSTS in 2001! Good old times. It is pretty cool that nowadays you can still use pretty much all MSTS content with Open Rails and more!

I'm TSW fan too. Is much better trainsim than TS20xx. I have German and US routes, looking forward to new San Franciso route.

There's not a free trainsim out there is there? I'd love to have one, but the cost is the thing keeping me from playing them.

On this subject, a little something from my previous life... I used to work for Auran (later N3V Games) on their Trainz franchise. This is from a project that unfortunately was never released.

And I even made trucks...

It's certainly showing its age now graphics wise, but this was about 15 years ago ;)
Never argue with idiots. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
