These pages will be focused as much as possible on a variety of tools applications, but will most often be illustrated with Notepad++ as the editor, and other Freeware applications like Open Office (esp. Writer and Calc). One feature of the editor and Open Office is custom colorization, or 'reskinning' in Trainz parlance, 'skins' in the vernacular— as one likes—so don't let my choices as the lead editor in these tutorials affect your liking or not. - FrankB 21:34, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
