    DTG tends to forget about dlc that’s released, whether it’s new or not, which means that we rarely get dlc for those routes, much less route extensions. We never had a route extension in TSW for not one route, ever. Not. One. Route. Unlike TS20, which does get them. I would like to cast a poll to see if anyone would like such things to happen after TSW 2021 gets announced. What routes would you like and why? Write that down in the comments! I would like DTG to extend the peninsula corridor to gilroy, NEC to new haven/Philly, and other shorter routes such as OSD, to Toronto. If anyone wants to suggest a route extension make sure to comment down there what route you would like to get an extension. :)

    RRO pivots around Hagen with RSN. In TSW. That's a sort of route extension....? Anyway... TSW has only been around for three years, whereas TS1 has been around for ten, and some of those routes (like ECML) are composed of routes made by different companies.

    I am probably going to be unpopular by saying this.... but I don't want to see any route extensions in TSW for a very long time.

    I want to see more variety in TSW. France, Italy, Japan, Spain, India, Australia, South Africa, Russia.... plus some metros like London, Paris, Moscow, Rome, Los Angeles. And some more varied traction like steam, overhead DC, bi-mode electro-diesel, hybrids, fourth rail, narrow gauge, trams. When the bases get covered, then maybe look to extend popular routes....?

    But...I understand that everyone will have their favourite route that they want extended/developed. I could pick one myself, but I'd prefer something different every single time.

    Variety is the spice of life.

    I would like to see route extensions. I think I'll be easy and want a Extension of line S3 in the Hauptstrecke Rhein-Rhur route due to the fact that the next stop after Mulheim Styrum is Oberhausen HBF which is the last stop of the line which is an additional 2.4 miles and the Distance from Essen Steele Ost to Hattigenmitte is only 6 miles with 4 additional stations. I think the full s3 line should've been added when hrr was released. It's silly that it wasn't

    That doesn't make sense as to why line s3 wasn't added. They couldn't add a additional 8 miles of track. It's just stupid at this point. Don't they do research on the lines they make? If I was to ask for a extension, I would like the Long Island Railroad Ronkonkoma Branch extended to Ronkonkoma. It's only an additional 23.5 miles with 7 extra stations

    I would like to see the current LIRR route get extended. Right now, the route only goes as far east as Hicksville. I would really like to see the developers extend the Port Washington Branch past Woodside, up to Port Washington. The trackage for the Oyster Bay Branch exists in TSW but from what I have heard, the camera only will go right before reaching the East Williston area. If the trackage can be extended to Oyster Bay, I could see there being the addidion of the DE/DM30 locomotive and C3's. Since TSW is a 64 bit program, I would ultimately like to see all LIRR branches be featured.

    The NEC should also get an extension. Newark-Liberty International Airport --> New Rochelle is nowhere near the route length of the real life NEC route. The entire NEC corridor should be featured.

    I think if they were to make a full nec route, it would have to come out in phases due to how long it is but it is possible to make a full line route

    Hmm, I know cAcTuSjUiCe (I think that’s how u spell it maybe the capital letters are a little off) is planning on making the entire route after the editor comes out (if it even comes out), rn DTG making the route is a little unlikely since they’re gonna have to make an additional 400 miles.:|

    That is awesome, I really hope the editor is as simple like the tools in Trainz Surveyor. I wonder if there will be a way to import DEM data to generate topographical maps for the areas that we want to create. I am the creator of the Major Tri State Area Project for Trainz. The project is not finished but I have worked on creating parts of New York City, Westchester, Dutchess and Orange County in New York. It would be interesting to see if routes like the LIRR and NEC and be merged somehow as well as added on to.

    Matt stated that there is an option to input google earth data in a map overlay in the editor, so yes u can input data to generate maps, a kinda cool feature since I won’t be able to travel everywhere to get an accurate representation of the route I wanna create. :)

    maybe they could do that to the long island railroad since it doesn't look the way it does in real life, so unrealistic

    Yep,

    I’d like to see an East Coastway expansion to Hastings (or even Ore). I’d also like to see the LIRR extended and the GWE extended to Bristol Temple Meads.

    You will be happy to find out that the Bakerloo line is the full line route, goes all the way, to actual destinations, no half measures, the full unadulterated 14 miles.

    That's just the Northbound route. If you add the Southbound route then it is 28.5 miles in total, call it 29 miles.... or 30 miles..... which is par for the course these days....;-D

    I am obviously joking. Length doesn't really matter... as I constantly assure myself....

    More seriously - if they have done the piano keyboard flooring at Westminster.... then that's worth ten miles of route just by itself.

    I'd like an extension for the Peninsula Corridor. Plus, the extension should include a UP GP60, a Genset switcher, and/or a big EMD or GE diesel for heavy freight. I'd suggest a CW44AC, ES44AC, ET44AH, SD70ACe, SD70M, SD70AH-T4, or SD60M. We should get a better selection of freight cars, too.

    Another one? The last one was on 24th May this year. Polls don’t give answers they just end up with a handful of people saying yes and a handful of people saying no. It’s a topic that has been done to death anyway. If I see the word Ronkonkoma now it gives me the shivers.

    An official poll would be a different matter. I’m sure DTG are well aware that a significant number of players want extensions and for the most part, what those extensions are. If they have already done a poll in the past, they could compare the results with a new poll to see if there is still the desire for extensions. Up to this point they have been concentrating on more routes but as the number of routes increases things change. I wouldn’t have high hopes for any extensions to TSW routes now that TSW2 has been announced though.

    By route:

    GWE: Oxford being a good candidate and I'd like to see the branches to Greenford, Heathrow, Windsor, Marlow, Henley and Baskingstoke too. Although I'd be happy for one or the other.

    RT: Maybe introduce the rest of the S6 route to Geithain or the S2 branches to Lutherstadt Wittenberg and Leipzig-Stotteritz.

    NEC: Southwards to Trenton and/or Northwards to Stamford.

    WSR: It's obviously already complete, but I know sometimes trains run into Taunton so it'd be cool if you could get an add-on to say Weston-Super-Mare for example.

    RSN: Aside from merging it with the RRO, I think an extension to Siegen is the most popular choice.

    LIRR: Oyster Bay, Long Beach, and West Hempstead branches.

    NTP: Onwards to York as well as the alternate route to Manchester Piccadilly from Stalybridge.

    MSB: To Wuzburg and Großkrotzenburg.

    TVL: To Bishop's Auckland and maybe Nunthorpe too.

    PC: Gilroy as that's the only other route I can think of tbh

    RRO: Again, merge with the RSN,but also extensions to at least Dusseldorf and Dortmund.

    EC: Hastings and Ore are a must, Hove would make sense and even Worthing would be a good choice.

    OSD: Into Toronto pretty much.

    HRR: To Dortmund and Dusseldorf, possibly even merging with the RSN and RRO

    I obviously don't expect all of these to happen but I'd love to see some extensions :)

    Isn’t RRO, RSN and HRR close together? Distance wise? I love to see extensions connecting all three German routes.

    Well now that that LIRR has been or will be branded as Preserved content there will be no extensions to this route or any of the others very sad.

    No. Not only are they not going to extend LIRR, but if it turns out the new M3 has a bug, but it is only found after 6th August... then according to the common understanding on the Forum.... they won't even be fixing the bug... let alone adding a few miles of extra route content.

    It's a real shame because a lot of us were hoping for extension, but sadly not going to happen.

    Calling something an extension probably limits the number of people who purchase it to some percentage of the original owners.

    But if they happen to release routes that overlap any geography, they should automatically combine in the game. Call it an original route and give bonus content to people who buy both.

    In reply to your post GWR there is so much not even been done with this such as working destination blinds or opening windows on the class 166 networker turbo also the route has no end of tracks that vere off in one direction or another which in itself leaves so many possibilities
