Enough is enough

Yesterday I purchased some items in the Steam Autumn Sale and the download has totally overwritten my existing TS2014 file structure. I have lost all my assets from other suppliers (IHH, AP, Digital Traction etc), all my own assets but, worst of all, it has lost all my source files for my modelling work and, just to add insult to injury, has wiped my backup file.

I have survived many problems over the years with Train Simulator, with the game, with my computer and also, with my health, but this is the final straw. I cannot handle anymore of this so I am closing the blog.

Thanks to all who have followed my musings and goodbye.


  1. Phil - so sorry to hear this. I do hope you can retrieve something from this mess. I've been looking forward eagerly to your GWR stuff. Do please keep going. Best David Gibbons/longbow

    1. David,

      The GWR models for the SVR were a promise I made and I keep my promises so, as I managed to recover about 80% of my source files, they will continue to be made. Keep an eye on the Steam Sounds Supreme facebook page for updates.

  2. Hi Eyore,

    I'm not sure if you still check this blog or not, but I'm hoping so! I came across some of your modelling work on quay cranes, straddle carriers, and other types of cranes and I really like them. I'm a software developer and am working on a project at home, and would really like to use some of your models if you would be interested in sharing. Please send me an email at and I will share more details about my project with you and hopefully you will be interested. Thank you.
