    I looked for it last night but didn’t find it. It was fun driving down the train tracks looking for it. I spent all my time driving slowly round the circuit looking at the detail in VR, I’ll try racing on the track another time!

    well, ok, you've got me there... there is no train in the race sessions :) Only practice and quali. The thought being that it would be slightly rude to include such additional detail to a race session, when presumably no one would be stopping to admire the train, and that minor reduction in detail might slightly help process the other cars which in theory are in the same part of the track at the same time as the player :)

    I just went and had a look at Longford 0.97, I think one of the first releases.......

    The first download I could find for RF1 was dated 23/08/2011...that is 7 years.......next week. I started Lakeside and QR maybe a year or so earlier. Since we have such a great platform and I am getting my head around track building a bit better, I will just do what you have done...little by little, make changes and keep building on what you have.

    I have watched you do what you have done Woochoo and very impressed and honoured to travel the journey. You are an encouragement to me to keep going and not give up.

    Thanks Mike, some nice words there :)
    The work started on Longford at the start of 2009, so it sure has been a learny journey.
    Little by little seems to be the only way I can go about it.
    Some things have been updated. Some things have been replaced. But never the whole thing at once.
    I remember chatting with you about Lakeside in the early days. Good to see it continuing still :)
