Abbreviations Problem

Postby Doug Bailey » Mon Jun 27, 2022 10:34 am

Many of you have noticed the abbreviations system that has been added to the locomotive viewer. It works quite well, except for one small detail: Some abbreviations have different meanings in different parts of the world. For example CR is Chinal Rail (in China) and Central Railway (in India). I've begun the process of making abbreviations location-sensitive to solve this problem.

Mercifully, in the UK listings the issue is avoided by having the name 'Caledonian Railway' in full. There's only three survivors unfortunately, although a look at this one in Belgium shows what we could have had on display in the UK: https://www.steamlocomotive.info/vlocomotive.cfm?Display=9245 The notes about the loco explain what I mean!
