    As an Aussie myself, I would love to see some Australian DLC in train simulator, because there is absolutely none! There are so many beautiful Australian railways and locomotives, especially the steam locomotives. I would definitely buy an Australian DLC if one was released on the store!

    Trainz seems to be the only company that does Australian trains because they an Australian company.
    It might be down to License requirements which would be required before any work would be done.

    I may be wrong since I am unfimiliar with legal requirements and things like that but surely that may not be a case after all, multiple locomotives in the game have the branding of multiple railway companies, even ones from New Zealand, Africa etc. And there are multiple Australian companies like it would be unbelievable if they cant use any companies in a train simulation game. And when there has been legal disputes, for example the issue with Arriva Trains Wales, they re-released the route but this time the Class 175 still had the livery of Arriva but without their actual company logo, same has been done for BNSF. Couldn't this be done for Australian companies too if there are legal disputes?

    If DTG were to release DLC for an Australian route that did not have any logos I don't think it would be received very well.
    There are people on this forum who won't buy the no logo BNSF items for one reason or another.

    I guess you're right, personally I would think it's better than nothing but it would certainly be displeasing to a lot of people

    I would also like to see Australian DLC and while it could be possible, that purely depends on who would develop it. Until recently there was no NZ DLC, so it can happen. Australia has many diverse railways and some rather interesting liveries along with a variety of gauges. While in the current TS202x series, I do have a love for North American railways (which evolved from this game), I still have an affection for South African content (which is closest in gauge & railway stock to my home state, Queensland).
    Something that may come along in the future...

    I am also an Australian and am disappointed with Dovetail games for not releasing any Australian DLC, I have always wanted the Puffing Billy Railway in Train Simulator and/or Train Sim. I think it’s a great idea to have Australian DLC with the British, American and German that dominate Train Simulator and Train Sim.

    Out of all the Australian routes, maybe bring a heritage railway or a metropolitan railway to the game. All the states have unique trains that could be brought into the virtual world.
