Stop The Express - NS
Especially for Dutch players, LarsThe18Th pimped the MSX game "Stop The Express" to make it show the train with the iconic colors and logo of the Dutch railroad company, Nederlandse Spoorwegen, and fittingly dubbed it "Stop The NS".

LarsThe18Th: very cool change to the game. Would it be a good idea to change Ita Express to "Intercity" to get more of the NS feel? If someone would add the music "kedeng kedeng" to the game the game would be a master piece Big smile
