    One train is having no loco. That’s not a sensible suggestion!

    In a virtual world, there is no need to be sensible. Just run with what you started!

    Yes I am an active volunteer
    Two light loco moves, one passenger working, coaches vandalised, a crash, a derailment and a mass shooting... yes quite the gala

    Thanks for letting us know. A shame this information wasn’t available from the Railway just before I started my 400 mile essential trip to the Railway. I’m now at Swithland and was wondering why nothing had turned up...

    I’m going to write an angry letter to the Daily Mail about this immediately.

    It was best because of Corvid 19 that they cancelled it

    Grand Theft Auto Great Central

    Collect the hidden packages of Welsh Steam Coal.

    Watch out for the rival gangs who have you in their sights, the ruthless ‘photters’ and the violent and unpredictable ‘timers’ gangs. Each with their distinctive ‘fashion styles’.

    Complete the restoration of a MK1 TSO mission before heading over to some of the side missions such as DJing the War on the Line weekend. The final mission, extending across the gap and restoring the Binbrook Crab, (rescuing from a field being an earlier mission).

    Grand Theft Auto West Somerset is just a violent gang shoot em up where no one can be trusted.

    So the FICTITIOUS gala that was running while covid-19 was happening has been cancelled because of... covid-19.

    Cool.

    Using the mail exchange transfer system to swap crews may not be authentic, but it certainly made for interesting viewing. Think the staff were generally unscathed.

    The idea is you can run whatever stock you want at the great central. I chose a new build idea and an observing coach. Epping is a good idear do you want to start up the next gala on here?
