Open Rails 1.1

MSTS Compatibility: Nearly Complete
- Nearly all functions are expected to perform the same as MSTS or better.
- Key exceptions are: activity evaluation, and steam vacuum ejectors.

Editors
- Uses MSTS AE to build activities.
- Uses MSTS RE for route development.

Key features
- Water troughs support added.
- Activity restricted speed zones added.
- Switching train control added.
