Diesel Railcar Simulator
How much of my affection for Diesel Railcar Simulator is fondness for a transport sim that puts substance before surface, and how much is nuanced nostalgia for the vanished Britain it artfully evokes, I really can’t say.

Friday Foxer #20
Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

Solo Foxer #20
Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind.

3×3
Want to turn a green lane into a brown lane, tow a Gulaschkanone across a snowy field, or roam the Western Desert trashing Axis airfields? Get a 4×4.

A2Z
A is for Alphabetised wargame and sim news. I could have scattered these topical tidbits throughout the week in the hope they’d make Tally-Ho Corner look lively and well-staffed. Concern for your LMB dabber persuaded me to glue them together and present them as a single Maksim Gorky-sized tract instead.
