    would love to see this route in the game, operated by GWR’s previously owned class 43 HSTs now wearing the 7 cities livery.

    The route roughly takes 2 hours and 25 minutes and just like the GWR route, the trains can reach their maximum speed.

    The train calls at the following stops -
    • Aberdeen
    • Stonehaven
    • Montrose
    • Arbroath
    • Dundee
    • Perth
    • Dunblane
    • Glasgow queen street
    I feel like this route would be perfect for TSW as it’s such a scenic route and we already have the class 43 HST.

    Thanks for taking the time to read.

    It is a great idea however having to drive for over 2 hours to complete a service is a bit much, there is always a chance to see the 385s/380s operating between dunblane and Queen Street.

    With Perth and Dundee it would be possi le to do shorter services. Aberdeen to Dundee for example. Dundee to Perth. Dundee to Glasgow. Breaking up the journey and possible using different types of trains.
    With a route like this there are a lot more possibilities than just going from one end to the other like we have now.
    I personally would love to see this or a similar route developed for tsw.
    Thumbs up from me for this idea.

    Two hour scenarios are pretty normal in train simulator but it would probably necessitate the save function being fixed. Of course on consoles there have been much much longer requirements before (thinking Gran Turismo and the 24 hour races)
