    Ok, silly question I’m sure, but I got the impression from reading the blurb, that I could experience TSW (specifically West Somerset Railway as that’s mostly all I’ve played so far.) as a passenger if I wanted to. I got the impression that I would be able to enter the environment, having not taken responsibility for anything specific and that the world would just get on with it’s own thing and let me ride, train spot, or look for hidden items.

    I can’t seem to see how to select this option from the scenario menu though. Did I get the wrong end of the stick?

    Go to Timetable and select Spawn Walking.

    As Ildario says spawn walking and then picking a location is what you're looking for if you just want to amble about.

    Here's a useful link to the timetables for the various routes, that way you can spawn just before a train leaves/arrives. If you wanted to take a ride that is. :)

    You can also get out of the cab and wonder about or sit in a carriage. The game eill eventually ask you if you want to relinquish control of the train and then take over is you say yes.

    Thanks fellas, that’s handy info. Does this mean that the world I spawn into, will be circulating around a specific train instance? Rather than a rail line with trains moving about and just ignoring me? So for example, if I ride on a train, get off a couple of stops in and then go looking for items (because apparently I carry quite a lot of sand and milk about my person at any given moment. Not to mention posters and paste and brushes to put them up. ) as the train pulls away. Will there be another one along in a minute, or had I better make sure I have a good pair of walking boots on?

    The service mode you can spawn into runs continuously so the trains will just get on with it. You can climb aboard any one and take control of them, or just sit in a carriage or second mans chair. Then get out again where you want. Or you can just wander about and ignore them (or collect numbers if you want!)

    Yes I to often wonder where I carry all the items to carry out all the jobs. :D

    Oh you can walk for miles. Fancy a stroll from Leeds to Manchester? It's possible!
    Those timetables I posted above can come in quite useful.

    Yep already walked from Saltburn to Darlington doing collectables. Have to go back and do the yards to get the rest.
    Recently finished walking Reading - Paddington.
    Now currently walking The NEC route!

    You want to watch out for those trains passing by, they are dangerous. Sometimes they can spoil a good stroll. Perhaps put a ticket in and ask for them to be removed. ;)

    Have you got your virtual self walking about now Badger?
