It was great to see everyone over the weekend, and I hope you all had as good a time as we did!

Now as promised previews of the two simulation in use are below. Click on the image to get a larger version which you can zoom in on to see the full detail.

Doncaster Station will be with you all over the next few days, we haven't set a release date for Basingstoke as of yet but we hope it will be between now and the end of Q1 2024.

Doncaster station looks amazing, really looking forward to it! Just a few observations based on the 2017 - 2022 era shown in the picture:

-Auckley crossing is an MCB-OD
-Finningley G/F has been plain lined and no longer exists
-Toad Hole Lane UWC no longer open
-Distant Signal on the up slow at black carr junction in the down direction doesnt exist
-Decoy south crossing no longer open
-Roberts Road electrification depot is known as Greenfield Lane in the PSB.
-There is no limit of shunt on the Belmont down reception, D1458 will only clear onto the Down Reception if the DR is occupied
-There are point normalisation alarms and indicators for 2403 points protection the carriage sidings at Doncaster and 2313 points at Potteric Carr, but there is no indicator shown
-There is no longer a trailing crossover beyond D815 on the ECML at Arksey and there is no longer a GPL on the up main in the same location
-There are no longer catch points beyond D699 signal, these were removed a long time ago.
-D1481 in platform 1 was removed when the tamper sidings were converted to platform 0

GeoffM is at a family function this weekend, he'll dive in and give a better reply as the sim developer than I can when he gets back.

Really looking forward to the Doncaster Station sim being released. The layout looks fantastic.

My credit card is positioned next to my computer so the minute the sim becomes available - wham. A licence will be paid for

Everything that you make will be useful - providing it's made of chocolate.

Will there be a multi multi buy if we want to own Doncaster in its entirety?
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Got it. Have you? If so what was the time of confirmation of payment for you?

Well in the past, those of us who brought Penzance as a example were given a discount on Cornwall when that simulation was released so it would have been nice for those who already own Doncaster South and North to again get some kind of discount off the high cost of the new simulation but than again that is down to the SimSig Team.

I for one won't be in a hurry to buy Doncaster as a result.

Looks like you and probably quite a few others have beaten me to it. Releasing it at the time I'm in the kitchen preparing dinner and then eating it obviously meant that I couldn't be at my computer. Blast!

It's now 20:10, so here goes..........

YIPPEEE - DONE!

I remember that discount for Cornwall, as I had the standalone Penzance sim. I'm assuming the discount was offered because Penzance is included in the Cornwall sim (meaning those of us who bought Penzance effectively purchased it twice). The discount made it fair to those of us who had Penzance.

Doncaster Station isn't in Doncaster North or South sims, so I wasn't expecting a similar kind of discount.
