Yeah but then you need 3 hours to fix all the issues that arise from the first import

The development team are pleased to announce that at least one brand new simulation will be previewed at the March 2019 meet. We reckon you will love this simulation.

This thread is purely for speculation over what the simulation may be.
Oh well !! Let's hope it is a rebuild of Southampton with lines up to Dorchester, Weymouth, Romsey, Basingstoke, Eastliegh and as far as up to Cosham junction area.

Or even better... Salisbury to Honiton !!!

Nah !!! ... probably London to China freight !!!

The rumour I'd heard was a special sim for Mr Gallon, the heritage Royal Mail underground line in London ;)

Never had a ride on it (not even now it is a tourist attraction) but I've been on the platforms at London WDO (Rathbone Place) and Mount Pleasant.

After the system was mothballed there was a video on line produced by a team of subterranean explorers who unofficially accessed various underground passages and caverns below London. The video documents how they climbed up to the roof of Paddington sorting office on a Sunday, down through the building to the basement while dodging the weekend security staff then walked the whole system to Whitechapel. Unfortunately the video now seems to have been hidden ( I hesitate to say "gone underground"). The system was kept on a care and maintenance basis and the old station platforms were still lit and accessible from the parent office if that office still existed when I left the business in 2007.

I was lucky enough to visit and have a walk through of some of the tunnels at Mount Pleasant on a Postal Museum guided tour whilst they were preparing to transfer it to the museum. I've got some photos of the tour somewhere, I should put them online...

I would love a sim of the post office railway, which I worked on in the early 1970s
