    So was the Keystone cab car. But DTG made, we bought it. That's a win in their book, not mine though.

    Who is we? 'Cause I certainly didn't. I own pretty much every DLC there is for TSW, but this one, after reading what people said about it... nope. Skippped that one. And judging from how often it appears in screnshot contests etc, quite a few other people seems to have done the same. ;)

    Looking at the various additional customisation options that will be implemented in TS2020 I wonder if there's a vague smidgeon of possibility that additional customisation options might be added to TSW2020? I suspect not as DTG is probably concentrating on the word that must not be mentioned and if any such had been planned they would have appeared at the TSW2020 launch.

    We as in the people that did make the unfortunate mistake of buying. Should've clarified on that.

    Could it be that the next route DLC will arrive in November, because of an comparison with the last year's TSW releases. The release cycle was very similar in both years so far. Last year NEC March, this year MSB February, last year WSR May, this year TVL May, last year RSN August, this year SFJ August.

    Of course you don't Anthony, but what about the other unfortunate souls that bought it and didn't pass it off as perfect as you tend to do with DTG products. Sure not all are bad, some are great, while others are downright miserable.

    The cabcar itself isn’t that bad. The route however.... I think people are saying saying that the cabcar is bad just because of the route it is on.

    I bought the DLC and find the cab car to be well implemented. The biggest failure is the improper implementation of ATC on the route which affects ALL the dlc that run on the route. It is pretty disappointing that if you utilize safety systems, you “fail” at meeting time schedules.

    To be fair since they patched the Cab Car its mostly alright. The route issues overshadow a lot of it such as the wrong ATC / ATCES signaling and the fact that all the Services are really short.
    However its unacceptable that one service of the Cab Car runs cant be completed up to this day because 3 trains get stuck at a red which you cant solve.
    The shunter out of the same DLC is great though, you just need to be into long shunting sessions at a low speed.

    That was the point I was making, though the horn on it is miserable. The cab car itself looked pretty decent, other than it's initial release problems.

    The cab car is not bad. Its modeled very nicely in and out. What stinks is the lack of use it offers. As such with the switcher as well. But thats 'IRL' given what little of the map we have.

    Yes the modeling is gorgeous according to what I've seen. All TSW trains are, in fact. Frankly if there is one thing DTG is real masters at, it's creating those vehicle models.

    Lets hope the period of silence means an editor is underway, I’ve been enjoying OMSI more until TSW is at a level of excellence in simulation we’ve come to expect.

    I think it's realistic because there is already a freight achievement for LIRR.

    Never heard of this before - I've been away for a while - It would be nice to see freight though

    You could be on to something there. There's not one in the specific LIRR sub-group, but now that the base bundle has been reorganised, the Car Collector trophy says, "Couple to 380 freight cars on New York Foundation or Long Island Rail Road" - for new purchasers without the NEC route, there will need to be a way to get that trophy only using LIRR.

    Maybe DTG could employ someone who is paid to leak information?

    As a matter of fact, they already do. His name is Dmitri and he sometimes even writes a number of articles detailing things that are coming up for release soon! Weird, huh.

    That's the dumbest thing I've heard. Besides, they do a good enough job doing it themselves by adding achievements and etc early. Don't bother me though. And if freight is coming to LIRR, then why don't we think about the possibility of Amtrak on Sand Patch Grade. It's the only US route that wouldn't have passenger and freight. And a P42DC is LONG overdue in my opinion. Just a speculation though, a not so baseless one but still a speculation.

    Something's got to be coming soon. On the TSW news update page, there were 6 updates in April, 6 updates in May, 5 in June, 3 in July and 4 in August. So far in September, we've had NOTHING! A whole month without any TSW news.

    Either something big is coming, or they've forgotten about us completely! :|

    I hope DTG isn't folding. Seems out of the ordinary to just have a month of no news. Very concerned considering Flight Sim World was cancelled outright.

    I think they've just been focused on getting TS2020 out the door. They've said that they're committed to both products so I don't think it's anything bad. I just want new TSW routes!

    I kind of try to avoid thinking about that possibility but after what happend to FSW this is sadly a pretty valid concern. And with the piece of software with the initial letter E somewhere in the ether, we really don’t know anything behind the scenes. And if this is some sort of hype tactic than they really need to stop as this is not interesting at all. Sorry if i sound a bit negative but i really share the same concerns recently :/. Have a great rest of the day guys

    Shhh... we should avoid suggesting what DTG need or should to do (like for example talk to their customers about the future of the game). They are tolerating that in this topic, but this will probably not last forever. Source: https://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/will-tsw-ever-replace-tsxx.18454/#post-96266

    And also, remember to "refrain from making any demands". Cit.

    Going back to this. If they were to add a freight option to LIRR, what would it be? Wikipedia suggests that the New York & Atlantic Railway runs freight on the LIRR lines, but their equipment list is pretty short. Would we just get more of the GP38-2s in the funky green and black NYAR livery?

    800px-NYAR-GP38-2.jpg

    It would be hard to justify this as additional paid DLC since the base model is already there, but if they added it alongside something else it could work.

    Do you even think this would happen? Or would any DLC for this route just bring more passenger trains? The new M9 looks pretty similar to the M7 - would there be much difference in the driving experience? Could we get an M9 and freight combo?

    Is the 146 just a 145 with a different livery?

    There are differences such as the 146 has a passenger information display and can travel up to 160 km/h whereas the 145 only goes to 140 km/h.

    That’s definitely Hagen. I think this route will start in Hagen, but we will be going the other way.

    As some users have already pointed out, it seems to be a DB BR 422 based on the tiny bit of headlight visible. A 294 would be a nice bonus as we need them german diesel fumes ;). Cheers

    I don’t automatically buy all German content, but I would be interested in this if it is actually connected to RSN. The NEC/LIRR situation is frustrating and I don’t want to use my dollars to support another one of those.

    Those are just game genre description tags. Doesn't mean anything for development.
