    Wonderful bit of attention-to-detail, I just encountered. Nice one DTG. :)

    I'm not going to spoil it, because the route is so new and there's probably tons more to discover and I wouldn't want anyone spoiling those surprises for me either... but I will say this much:

    Be in Service Mode, doing the shunting, at 10:00 in the Teesside area (perhaps any service even as far as Redcar, who knows?), and keep your windows open. The real-life locals will probably already know to what I'm referring... ;)

    Then Google it, to find out whether war has been declared or not (luckily, I knew already... so it just made me crack a huge smile instead of mess myself!)

    I only knew about this in advance thanks to Geoff Marshall's video on Redcar British Steel and I got really excited when it was mentioned (briefly) on the devstram on Wednesday...

    Just tried it, thanks for the timing! That right there is attention to detail...

    I don't actually have the route, so what happens?

    Is this happening in reality, too? What's the background? Just curious ...

    Not a local, but apparently yes. There's a chemical plant nearby that uses the sirens to warn of a gas leak, and they test them twice daily. Apparently they go off twice in-game also but IDK when they go off the second time.

    These small details really help TSW feel true to life. More of this kind of thing, please!
