Since I did this, I am the only one who can log...

    Sign help?

    It means the AWS warning you will have just recieved does not apply to you. I only know of them on branches. As the magnets are always live when a signal is on, it can't be turned off, when you pass it in the wrong direction, such as on a branch, you still get an aws warning. It's just so...

    Euro truck simulator downloads

    Thanks MB As for the other games, I've never tried them, but ETS is very good in my opinion. It can get tedious after a bit, but i still enjoy it. I never realised driving a lorry was so sifficult until I got this game. The fatigue option makes it a bit interesting, with the 'will i wont i'...

    Just found.....

    Simsig didcot aint hard because the computer does 95% of the work (ARS) As for royston, sounds like you've left a signal in auto on the london line. Just un-click the blue filled in circle by the signal and then the route should release As for stafford. It's pretty basic. VW5 (colwich loop)...

    Is there any ways of checking for these? I've asked my dad and he says we haven't got one, but I can't download from the MT web-site. They've told me I need to make sure these aren't on the system, just odd I suppose. When i try to download, i get a file size of 1.41kb

    Network Rail Advanced Apprentiship

    Thas something i didn't mention in case i put FR off, is that NWR is VERY good at breaking promises, even down to the basics like equipment, and then when you get the proper kit yourself (i'm using the "waterproof" jackets as an example) they have a go at you. On the tracks I can understand...

    Network Rail Advanced Apprentiship
