Website in the Spotlight

The website of the week comes to your from CeeBee! Check out CeeBee's Trainz site for his collection of regularly updated screenshots.

Amigo, host of has been hard at work and is pleased to announce new search features that make it easier to find just what you're looking for in the way of Trainz content. He has introduced a site-wide full database search engine that will look for content on Trainz Luvr, in both Projects & Workshops and Outside Parties Downloads. Take a look at the new features here.

Screenshot of the Week

If you're into steam then take a peek at this fantastic screenshot from Prowler901. Prowler's work in modelling steam is quite simply superb --- and it is not even officially supported at this stage ;) You may also look to drop by Prowler's Den for the full steam drool experience. A fantastic effort Prowler!

Don't forget to stop by the Station early next week for the unveiling of a few new features!

The Trainz forum waffle thread of the week is "Old Trams, Early Ships, Horse/Carriages/Wagons". Barry branches out from ships to a discussion of all things transport pre-motor vehicle.

We're looking forward to hearing your feedback on Service Pack 3; the brew crew and the Trainz beta-test team are putting in a huge effort to get it just right.

Until next week......
