I think I heard about some sort of Multiplayer on the VNERR website a while back. Is this true? is there some sort of ultility that will allow users to ride the rails together?

That could be an interesting MMORPG that I haven't seen anyone try implementing yet.I've always thought that would be cool. I know they have flight simulator that does that. I think it would have to be part of a new game as the dispatcher part isn't built into MSTS at all, and some issues would have to be worked around, like what happens when someone parks a train on a crossover, and then stops it there, but doesn't log off the game. So there would need to be higher level controls where you could pull someone off the tracks. And maybe a way to put the train into auto pilot to go to the bathroom or something, since you couldn't pause the game if it was a realtime sim with others playing.
