    C4399ACA-D728-4515-813B-4224ABB7091B.jpeg I know this is a lot of miles but I suggested it because of the Scenic Beauty and also being able to Run Canadian Pacific Freight and also Passenger service possibly the Rocky Mountaineer passenger train which takes visitors on an exclusive train ride through the Scenic Canadian Rockies! This picture is Banff Curve and is same place as other picture only no train and winter scene!

    I would also like to see a Canadian route. The scenery is second to none up there and I feel like the TSW engine would be able to capture it nearly perfectly.

    The Rocky Mountaineer is very good way to see the Canadian Rockies there are a lot of videos on Utube on this if you never seen it.

    This was my favorite routing in the old MSTS and I wrote a number of activities for it.

    Single main line action and train meets + Via Rail old stainless steel rolling stock... wooow that would be so great, especially for that multiplayer option that's on the way, isn't?

    This would be a great suggestion for TSW running from Vancouver all the way to Calgary. It would very scenic the run through the Fraser Canyon would be nice.

    I agree this would be great addition to TSW,
    and potential for a lot of challenging train driveing

    Canadian nationals route from edmonton to prince rupert is another great route with a grade of no more 1% but steep enough to hinder heavy trains
