I was going to post my magic traction curve calculator but the damned thing is so complicated I barely understand it. I'd spend the next two years trying to explain it (and all the railworks bugs that it attempts to overcome) to everyone else :D

I have this evening been studying the physics of the Class 37/3's, so your gadget is certainly of interest.

Hi Chris.
I just wanted to say thanks. I had located your site before reading this and I have successfully used most of your tutorials at some point or another while working on my own route.
