Couple of user-uploaded files that have no explanation as to what they do (other than in the title) but I think they may do something akin to what loader now does.

Anyway, do we still need them?
If so can someone come up with some text that will help potential users know what they are.

SimSig Launcher
The Fiddle Yard

The Fiddle Yard seems unrelated to SimSig, but the installer is broken anyway. It tries to download from a domain that is no longer available.

Thanks, in that case I've deleted it.

I think the launcher was pre-loader where someone had made a programme to work out what sims were on a computer and show them in a list rather than have to use the links for the individual exe

If I remember the Fiddle Yard was something to do with Yards / Carriage Sidings which in effect were not shown on the Panel but were a mini replication of the Yard itself

I found this re Fiddle Yard:

Two million people attempt to use Birmingham's magnificent rail network every year, with just over a million of them managing to get further than Smethwick.
