    Dovetails should create AI train conductors where the conductors can open and close the doors on the trains. They can say all aboard or blow the whistle so the driver can start the train.

    The AI drivers already control the trains without moving their limbs (or the controls!) by the power of pure thought. Presumably they can open and close the doors themselves, and give the right-away, by the same telekinetic means.

    On the Northern Trans-Penine a whistle to signal the train to leave the station would be great for the immersion and I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to include?

    I agree, it would be great for conductors to have control of the doors. Hear the guard buzzer etc...

    I agree and the AI conducters can have the ability to check tickets for passengers and make the announcments for the next station stop and the ability to commuicate with the engineers and dispatchers

    In my opinion I think Dovetails should animate the limbs of the AI drivers because this simulates that the drivers are actually driving the train and also have the ability to walk out of the cab when they switch drivers.

    These little details are the things that are needed, would make it so much more immersive. I think dovetail need to hold of the DLC for a bit and implement new features to the core game!

    "If wishes were fishes..." how soon would these folks be griping about loss of fps?

    Agree and they should also introduce station announcements, animated station display time boards, and train yard and station staff

    I don't play simulators to get 120fps, I play them for an immersive and realistic experience.
