website additions - DLC Directory and Timetables

I have now added two new work in progress areas to the website, the DLC Directory and a Timetables section.

The DLC Directory is intended to provide information about each individual product available for Train Simulator along with alternative purchase options where possible in order to allow users to find the best price. Additional information is provided for selected products, things such as route extensions or other ways to increase the longevity of the product and for packs bought on Steam that include extra DLC as part of the package, this information is included as well. In addition, certain pages such as those for Horseshoe Curve also contain a live stream of the real life location to provide an alternative element of interest in the route.

The Timetables section is intended to provide a useful resource for scenario creators with a large repository of historic timetables from current and now defunct TOC's. As retrieving this historic data is a slow and often difficult process, I anticipate it will take time to fully realise the vision I have for this section. However, over the coming weeks I do hope to have timetables in place for every post-privatisation TOC in place that cover nearly 20 years worth of documentation.
