This is the Bridgewater-Brunel Simutrans-Extended server.
Simutrans-Extended (formerly Simutrans-Experimental) is a fork of the popular open source transport simulation game, Simutrans. See here for an overview of the differences between Simutrans-Standard and Simutrans-Extended. See here to download the latest nightly version of Simutrans-Extended. Simutrans-Extended is available for Windows and Linux. Mac OSX users should be able to compile their own version from sources, but binaries are not generally available. Simutrans (both Standard and Extended) can be played online, and this is a server set up for playing large scale Simutrans-Extended games. For information on this and other Simutrans-Extended servers, and to see the detailed status of this server, see the announce server.
Francis Egerton, the 3rd Duke of Bridgewater commissioned the Bridgewater Canal in 1759. Opened in 1761, the canal, although not the first canal in Britain, was the first major canal, and marked the beginning of what some commentators describe as the golden age of canals, which lasted until the dawn of the railway age in the 1830s and 1840s.
Isambard Kingdom Brunel was the pioneering civil engineer who built the Great Western Railway, which opened from London to Bristol in 1841, and was one of the most innovative railways of the 19th century.
