Added as of V1.0:

Signal warnings – a few signals would not change from red after the train you follow passes the next signals, the game now tells you to press TAB
Rolling start removed
Mk1 coaches now have the correct bogies as they did on the day
All coaches numbered correctly as they were on the day
