That's excellent news Clive... this is one I'm particularly looking forward to. Sounds as if testing (so presumably the sim itself) has been particularly complex.
Jc92: Euston in 1960s mode shouldn't be chainable to Wembley Sub because of the era difference you mention; the DC Lines used to have a completely different kind of signalling (closer to US than UK practice really) so getting them to play together ought to present pretty insuperable problems. Having said which, this being a sim it's probably not that difficult to make it work well enough so who knows what will actually appear? I don't recall exactly when the DCs were resignalled but I think it was mid-80s, at which time Euston was still very much as Clive has simulated it, so 1980s & later eras will be no problem (and thanks to Peter for reminding us that they have been played together in public).
Class 92: I suspect even working out which sim will be next gets caught by the "when it's ready" factor - an unexpected problem with the next one scheduled, or a developer or tester with unexpected time on their hands could lead to the order changing on almost a daily basis, quite apart from the task of forming the sims being released into an upload and putting them on the site. Being a more recent member you may not be aware that sims are developed by individuals/small groups working independently, and so the rate at which progress occurs is completely unpredictable. Hence Euston (and a couple of others that have been shown at meets) still under development many moons later, while the likes of Oxted appear completely out of the blue to surprise & delight (should that be frustrate? ) us all.
