    Let's take a look at existing and future (announced) routes:
    1. CSX: all freight, including, in add-on pack, some switching.
    2. GWE: 90% passenger; 10% freight, including one switching session.
    3. NEC: mixture of passenger and freight, the latter including bits of shunting.
    4. Rapid Transit: 100% passenger.
    5. Ruhr Sieg: mixture of freight and passenger; some shunting (?).
    6. West Sommerset: mixture of freight and passenger, including some shunting.
    7. LIRR: passenger only (to Hicksville, no less).
    [8. Manchester - Leeds: 100% passenger, apparently, based on early announcements.]

    Sum: passenger~ 510, freight ~360; switching/shunting app. 60.

    I know that these tallies please lots of TSW players, but being a fervent member of the freight/switching camp, I'd appreciate more of it, including retro-fit to existing routes.

    WSR does not have freight.

    I would like to see more American freight!

    But heritage lines has a collection of not only locomotives but types of rolling stocks (passenger/freight/misc) as well. Sure there's no industrial purpose on a heritage line, but the wagons are there just for show. And yes, I do want to see more freight lines on TSW as well

    I definitely think they missed a trick with the Class 33. They could have included a few wagons with that so there could be a demonstration freight train (common at galas) and shunting scenarios on WSR. They could have also used the same wagons on the upcoming Huddersfield Line, as that route will look incomplete without any wagons in the yards/sidings; It would also add variety in the scenarios and services.

    The scenarios for the GP40-2 addon were fantastic (maybe the best freight scenarios in the game). I would like to see more of that

    At least they have confirmed in this thread: https://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/tsw-power-up-the-pennines.13943/page-2
    that a Freight Addon for the Huddersfield Line is in development. Would of course have been nice to get some freight from the start to go with but at least there is something coming on the freight front.

    Wait, it's an add-on? I missed that. Still feel like the freight should have come with it out of the box, but that's still ok, I guess.
