Good Morning:

If I were to guess, I would say DLC is Download Load Content. and RSC is Rail Simulator Content.

I just guessing.

Thanks!

Another one is RSD ?!?

I also figured out these myself

RW = Rail Works (train simulator)
RW2 = Rail Works 2 (train simulator)
RW3 = Rail Works 3 (train simulator)
TS2012 = Train Simulator 2012 (RW3)

!!howdy!!

To my knowledge, RSD stands for "Rail Simulator Developer".
This originates from the time when the company now known as RSC had that name.

RSDL, I think that was RailSimulator Development Ltd. ( Ltd means "limited", a limited company is a privately owned one ).

Hawk,
You think that is bad, it's even worse in the 12" to the foot world. you'll get "9505 is a WNSOR and the DID reports it had a flash-over in #2, so check the GDM and the TAT" I can't wait until we go back to Egyptian hieroglyphics, why have words at all when we can just use pictures !**duh*!! !*roll-laugh*! !*lho*!

Regards,
Rich S.
