    Hello folks,

    Please find below the changelog for today's update. It's a bit of a whopper, but includes the Preservation Crew updates for Hauptstrecke Rhein-Ruhr, Ruhr-Sieg Nord, and Rapid Transit routes, some Core improvements related to the Spirit of Steam update, and assorted other improvements (including a new horn for Clinchfield's SD-40, a fix for the 'Fast Lane' Scenario on London Commuter, and a special Queen's Jubilee decal for Creators Club to celebrate this weekend's Platinum Jubilee! Read on for more.

    Note: we've bolded the ones we think are headliners, and tried to categorise where appropriate.

    Quick note: The Mastery items need to be added manually, and there have been a couple of issues getting them live. I'll update here when we've resolved them.

    [EDIT - Now fixed and live]
