    You know, I'm surprised no one has made this for TS yet, DTG or Third party.

    This would be a no brainer unit to make, considering the fact it can be used on St. Pancras to Bedford, London To Brighton, South London Network and associated route merges.

    It's being worked on, I know previously there was a project where files got lost but i think this team is making some progress on it: https://www.facebook.com/GreatBriti...497g_-1uuToZWIW6B4KTbSnKsBAIDDJtuDQ&__tn__=-R

    (Sorry mods, not sure how to make the link more appealing but please feel free to shorten this down)

    That's going to be an interesting project..... I'll wait and see for that particular one as it seems to be made by a freeware outlet. If the unit is freeware, it will be interesting to see what happens. It'll either be half decent or it will... well, fall by the wayside.

    If it comes out as a payware product and its great then that's fine as well.

    To be honest even I forgot that project existed!

    The dev walked away because so many people kept going on at them about "when's it coming?" "why's it taking so long?" "when's it coming?" "Are you ever going to release it...?"

    i heard the same - hence why the partially finished ATS version was released? Looks like it’s back up and running - I’ve been in contact and helping supply some of the cab photos if needed.
    Worth it for a nice finished product!

    Yep, that's how far they got before it got to a point of stupidity and they gave up (worded politely)

    Can imagine that will probably resume now that the project is on the move again...

    That would presume that it actually stopped in the meantime :)

    Is that the same person who's working on the 707?
    Both would be brilliant.
