    Is there any way we could have something small like Adelaide Metro or even just an NR Class locomotive for us Australians to keep quiet? Haha.

    Would you like to give us more info on what line that you want those loco/ route you wanna propose? I'd like to know which line in the Adelaide metro you want to be put into train sim and what line is the NR Class going to run. :)

    I would want either the Adelaide Metro (which I used to have a portion of way back in Trainz 2006) or the Sydney system, set anytime from the 80s to the present day. And if you make the Sydney system, please please please make the V Sets! I love the V Sets! As far as lines are concerned, I would want either the Noarlunga or Belair lines for Adelaide and either the Western/Blue Mountains Line or the North Shore/Central Coast & Newcastle Line for Sydney. As far as rolling stock is concerned, I would include a V Set for Intercity services and either a Tangara T Set or a Waratah A Set for Sydney Trains suburban services. Adelaide would get either the 3000/3100 Class DMUs or the Jumbo 2000/2100 Class DMUs.

    Come on DTG, there are more countries in the world than just the US, UK, and Germany.

    I can't understand why the developers aren't actively trying to get licence for Sydney Trains content - Rolling stock wouldn't be that hard to adapt from existing UK/USA stock apart from the EMU/DMU and even then it's not that big a jump. You could have everything from the old red rattlers to the new waratah b sets and in doing so you would have a large amount of scenarios that could be created, and lets face it there would be some awesome scenery - can you imagine driving a train over the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

    Something in Melbourne would be nice too like Southen Cross to Seymour which is around 115km and it takes around an hour and 30 mins in a Velocity, N Class. The XPT to Sydney can be included as well. Plenty of freight goes on this line as well, such as Pacific National NR's, XR's and G's. SCT has also started Freight services to Queensland via New South Wales. I'm not sure if Qube Logistics runs on this line.

    Southen Cross Via Flinders Street to Pakenham which is over 60km and takes around 1 hour but the line can get very congested due metro services. The the new Skyrail Project could be included as well. Freight services used to run to the Maryvale Paper Mill near Morwell but due to the Skyrail project, I don't think they run anymore.

    Southen Cross to Geelong which is over 70km and takes around an hour in a Velocity or an N class is possible too but I don't think freight services run on this line.

    I would like to see the adelaide metro network across the board. With the Gawler, seaford, tonsley, belair and outer harbour lines. Im trying to do this using UK packages but it's not the same. Really want adelaide metro with train simulator. I would be a beta tester for it too if it's available.

    Let's get 1210 out. She would look fabulous on so many routes. In my opinion the streamlined SAR engines could be neat too, but the old NSWGR 4-4-0s are top of the list. Someone like Smokebox could do a fabulous job with 1210.

    DTG don't make items which are just a repaint of a train which would not be seen in the country.
    You would be better asking an Australian Train Sim group if they do anything for the game - easy for them to repaint a UK or USA train and it would not cost anything

    Pilbara Iron would be awesome. Interesting fact: the longest ever recorded train in the world was in the Pilbara Iron area. I'd like to see some Australian modern diesels and also be able to load and unload the iron ore cars.
