Open Rails 1.2

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
- Turntables added.
- More details in driver aids, e.g. mileposts in track monitor.
- Compatibility improved across all content.
