    Hi everybody,

    I think I have never introduced myself properly.

    I'm Ilja van Haren, also known as LodeStar, Croongetuige (but changed it to LodeStar again because JD can't pronounce it correctly...haha) and have been known in the past as Supertrain.
    I'm 37 years old and living in 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
    I've been a railway enthusiast since pre-1989. Why 1989, because that summer...was the summer it really kicked in! 150 years of trains in the Netherlands. A memory settled in my brain for life!
    The profile picture I use is actually GWR 4000 Class 4003: Lode Star. I saw this engine two times in my life while visiting Yorkshire for holiday at the NRM in York.

    Traveled all over Europe/Britain by train and visited some places on other continents as well.
    Started of with rail related games/software with Transport Tycoon Deluxe in the mid-90s, Bahn, Industry Giant, followed by RRT2/3, Locomotion, ZUSI and proud owner of a boxed version of MSTS.
    Also Trainz and Train Simulator I have played to some extend. But finally got really back into trainsimulators with TSW. :love:

    Nowadays I live next to the main stretch 's-Hertogenbosch - Tilburg/Eindhoven.
    I hope I can contribute useful, fun and constructive stuff to this forum and community. I've been a member of some TS/TSW Facebook pages for a while as well. :cool:

    Some pictures of railp*rn taken by me in front of my house (I live next to the station..:love:) quite recently, to fill up this welcoming page:
