The TORR option on Westbury seems to no-longer exist....any ideas?

TORR is only available in options Perfect and Beginner
My suggestion would be to select "Perfect" or "Beginner", if you haven't!

Silly me - I keep setting it to "Standard"! Thank you for pointing that our kind sir.

It's also possible to poke around in the save file.
Two million people attempt to use Birmingham's magnificent rail network every year, with just over a million of them managing to get further than Smethwick.

It would be nice if it were a tick option on start up like the majority of other sims; but maybe that’s just my preference vs the developers’ preferred way of doing things.

Fully echo this! Would be nice to give the sim(s) a bit more difficulty but maintain the TORR feature to focus on everything else!

If you use the F3 whilst at the start of a 'beginner mode' scenario you can increase the level of difficulty by upping the number of incidents allowed at any one time, increasing the likelihood of point/signal/tc failures or the probability of late running trains. All the different skill levels do is adjust those bars.

But in this case it also selects TORR being on or off.

You can also set things like line closures as well in theory.

If I remember correctly, Beginner mode also affects TD operation by automatically interposing headcodes for trains starting from sidings where you'd normally have to enter it yourself after receiving a corresponding phone call.
