I've asked Matt Peddlesden for an update and will post any news here.

I've heard from Matt again. He's given me FTP access so I've been able to check the website files are all in place.

I'm hoping we can try it out shortly.

I'm sorry for the delay - I reckon Matt has been overdoing it and suffered the consequences.

Updater within application is feeding updates again, but still no website. Lots of nefarious alternatives or dead links when you google for it, tho.

www.openrails.org is back, so please try it out and post any problems here or send me a PM.

There was a catastrophic hardware failure and it took a while to obtain and restore to a replacement server.

Thanks to Matt Peddlesden for getting us back on-line. It's now 11 years since UKTrainSim started hosting our website, free of charge, in support of our project.

Site looks good. Only issue I had was that I had to use the direct link to download the testing version
