Try being civil in my thread. Reading through the last several posts, I can't see anyone dissing TSC. It has issues just as TSW does with physics and reliability, but if you choose carefully then you will be rewarded. There is certainly no doubt steam traction functions better, whether the latest and greatest from Bossman, Victory etc. or older content - even the old Kuju RS Black Five and S&D 2-8-0 from 2007 are better than what Spirit Of Steam delivered.
