    My wife has been very upset with me over the weekend as I spent too much time on TSW. I hope we reach the target, otherwise seeing my marriage collapse was all in vain.

    Initially, I thought that goal is set too high, but it seems that it's really reachable!
    Good work TSW COMMUNITY!!!

    It would perhaps be healthier to get away from expecting a Germany/US/UK cycle of DLC and be happy with whatever comes along? I for one would love a Swiss route, Indian metre gauge or something interesting operational wise.
    But I am excited about what TSW is, and the heights it will be able to achieve, so all new content is welcome, regardless of country.

    Agreed. Let’s just be happy that so many things have been released for this game in the past couple of months. I’d also like to see a standard gauge Swiss route but i find it unlikely as DTG focuses primarely on the US/UK/DE routes.

    Well yes, reckon DTG shouldn't feel any pressure to release the next US/UK stuff though, and we shouldn't be asking that of them.
    As an aside, I played Rapid Transit for the 1st time on Monday, as they fixed the issues, and have to say it's fantastic fun to drive.

    Probably a silly question to ask but is the community challenge just for pc players only?

    I effectively have ignored my wife and daughter for a whole week to nail this challenge. I call on all fellow family men to do the same.

    Yeah... as cool as it could be, i don't think that's gonna happen... Exclusive skins could be more likely though.

    Back in the first few days, I was doubting we’d hit 4 million miles at all. But there you go, got it done a week early! Definitely didn’t expect that one.

    Hope we haven't set ourselves a high bar...
    BTW Ive stripped down to the plaster, unfolded the paste board and bought the solvite in preparation and I reckon will need about 3 standard rolls of your exclusive wallpaper, thanks.

    Exclusive free dlc would be amazing to give to the fans who play as much as these numbers show.

    Did 33's ever venture on that stretch of line?
    I thought the furthest they reached up North was Chester & North Wales on the Cardiff service?

    There are images out there of blue 33s at Piccadilly in the 80s. Ntp wouldnt be such a stretch.
    GWE and NTP would get better just by adding a charter train layer. Green or blue 47,45,33 or 101 and now a 52 with 3 different styles of mk1/2 coaches. Id have it parked at main line side for scenic interest. Then in use at an appropriate time where a gap in the timetable can be found.

    Yup. I drove some, but I never actually signed in to make the driving count (woops). Just checked and I can download the wallpapers anyway.

    I reckon they'll have to sort something a little more vigorous if the challenges continue.
