    Hey guys,

    Posting this because i'm a huge train fan. I live in Belgium and for Train Simulator I always used mods, but is their a chance to get a belgian or some belgian routes in Train Sim World. Belgium has a beatiful heritage of railway transportation and was one of the first countries in Europe to use train as transportation.
    In this thread I'm showing and giving a couple examples of routes that may be aweome to get in Train Sim World :) ; They contain the most important cities of or Belgian railway system like Ostend, Brussels (N-S-C), Antwerp, Ghent, Liege-Guillemins, Bruges, .....

    NMBS SNCB HLE 18 + i10 Coaches

    I really hope that we may welcome official routes in Belgium. A lot of people in Belgium are loving trains and Train Sim World so it would be wonderful if Dovetail would bring us one of these route. Little side note, these routes are some of the most bussiest routes in Belgian Railways.

    Thx in Advance

    Yeah indeed, many fans of the train sims in belgium so it's sad that belgian routes aren't coming to life here. I hoped with my post to get more attention from players, from dovetial, etc. That's also the reason why I did all the research and why i made this post so detailed.

    Ja, ik wil zeker en uitgestrekte Belgische routes van België (NMBS) op TSW hebben en zeker met al die treinen die jij erin hebt gezet (am80, AM08, am96, ..... En de HLE 27) en ook vele stations zoals (Hasselt erbij en Luik Guillemins, Brussels-Airport-Zaventem, ....) ik zou dat zeker leuk vinden om al die treinen en stations in TSW te zien op PS4 en PC en ook met de correcte Belgische seinen van de NMBS want ik zou graag met al die belgische treinen rijden
    Pls DTG voeg het eraan toe.

    I'd love Liége to Charleroi via Namur. Awesome scenery along the Meuse

    Would absolutely love to see some Belgian routes and rolling stock. Would be fun driving the Desiro.
    And the wonderful stations of Antwerp and Lieges...
    Would also like to see some older trainsets like the am62 (de klassiekskes) with their typical whine when they set off

    yes, Belgian route assets are the first steps. after all those years I don't think it will ever happen, maybe the Thalys or TGV Paris Brussels Amsterdam, I don't know. seems only UK and Germany are the train simmers. you can create a train simulator for the benelux only and it would sell as much as the dovetail ts, because dovetail will NEVER come with a route in the Benelux.

    Never say never. In live streams Matt repeatedly said he's very fond of Dutch rail....

    Zullen we allemaal vragen voor Gent-Sint-Pieters naar Brugge, als we zo veel vragen gaat er meer en meer kans komen dat ze het maken.

    DTG have repeatedly stated that their main markets are US, UK and Germany. It took Train Simulator years before routes from other countries were made, and over half of them are made by third parties.

    So far, TSW already has a Canadian route, and the roadmap shows both a French and Swiss route are heading our way. So, TSW gets non-US/US/DE countries considerably faster than Train Simulator ever did. Lets hope that's a trend.

    I'd love to see a Belian route. Preferebly not high speed. Although I guess DTG could reuse some stuff from that TGV and turn it into a Thalys, if they can obtain the license.

    I agree. I have really like Belgian Railways since I had a coffee at the station in Beernem. Beautiful trains, beautiful railways.
    It would be cool to have a route that covers both Holland and Belgium.
