    DCC wouldn't control that thing! You'd need mind control!

    I love slip switching and yards .. whenever I play with Trainz 2006 I always HAVE to have atleast one slipping line going through a yard plus they make switching much easier :).

    What's amazing to me is that I saw the picture, and before I saw the caption I thought, that looks like Frankfurt! It is pretty neat taking a train into that station.

    100% sure turnouts are controlled electronically and centrally so if anyone's to blame its the controller :p

    He could get so confused over that, It's so big! And yet theres over 1000 trains coming in and out each day!!:eek: must be tiring work, but somebodies GOTTA DO IT!!

    It looks like you can play tic, tac, toe on some of the turnouts and crossings. Loltooth1
    Just another disaster waiting to happen:rolleyes:
