A Christmas gift for you!
« on: 21/12/2010 00:45:54 »
For those of you that are interested in transportation, or anyone who just wants a rather fancy "screen saver", the National Railway Museum in the UK is giving away free downloads of a Flying Scotsman train simulator to promote the return of the real locomotive to York next year.

It's a biggish download - 562 MB !!

LOL!

And yes! You can make it come off the track, although I was a bit disappointed to find that if you run full tilt into the buffers in the terminus at the end of the line, it doesn't actually barrel through the station building, drop of the cliff and sink into the murky depths below.

//racial stereotyping on
I thought it was quite amusing that a present which costs nothing to the giver was filenamed 'scotsmangift".
