As usual, any other dialogs (such as going into offline mode due to a lack of internet connection or a missing Steam Service warning) will appear.

13 December 2015 A totally off-topic piece of news added to the News page, along with a minor update on the progress on the overhaul of the two locomotives from the RFIRT. The second story comes from the CSR 130 Project, about the design of a new exhaust system for a narrow gauge German steam locomotive.
