Wow!  I only got into MSTS fairly recently & have just started using OR & just wow, LOL.  You guys have done a superb job with it.  It's a joy to use.  I'm still finding my way around the MSTS internet etc & have seen a few OR subforums.  Just wondering if there is a specific forum for feedback/support etc or is one place as good as another.  Thanks again!

Oops, not around the place much these days and did not see the post.

The best place for more info and feedback is  http://www.elvastower.com/forums/, this is where most of the developers reside, an  honourable mention should be given to http://www.trainsim.com/vbts/forum.php and http://www.uktrainsim.com/. The developers do read these two regularly and elvastower has a slightly restrictive joining conditions which some are not comfortable with.

There is also a bug reporting service, I THINK the details can be found on the main OR web site.

OR is rapidly moving target and the experimenmtal release dose very around a bit, but that is the release most are advised to use.
