    I’d like to propose for the Birmingham Snow Hill lines to be built for TSW 2. This route is a busy commuter route and offers plenty of variety in traction opportunities. Some of the bigger stations retain their ‘vintage’ look, as seen in the photos below.

    In detail:

    Route: Worcester Shrub Hill & Worcester Foregate Street to Leamington Spa and Stratford-upon-Avon via Birmingham Snow Hill including Tyseley TMD.

    Era: Modern - post 2015

    Traction: WMT: Class 172/0, Class 172/2, 172/3. Chiltern Railways: Class 68, Class 168/0, Class 168/1, Class 168/2, Class 172/1.

    Total route Mileage: 67 miles*

    after all the fuss about AI traffic for BKL, DTG should add gwr class 166 traffic for worcester because DTG does actually have the assets for it so they cant repeat the excuses from BKL, provided that this route enters consideration and planning
