    This is a slightly updated version of my Chiltern Mainline NSE suggestion (https://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/chiltern-mainline-nse-london-princes-risborough.56143/)

    Climb the iconic Chilterns in a the early days of privatisation in Train Sim World 2: Chiltern Mainline South. Experience a variety of diesel tractions with both Turbostars and Networkers for you to take to the controls of.

    History

    The Chiltern Mainline was constructed primarily by the original Great Western Railway in phases between 1852 and 1910. During it’s heyday, many prestigious trains ran from both London Paddington (via Oxford) and from London Marylebone (via Neasden) operated by the GWR and GCR respectively. After nationalisation in 1948, BR began modernising the line and by 1963 all local service were operated by Class 115 DMUs. Until the 115s’ withdrawal in 1992, the line was in a steady decline into a state of disrepair. In 1986, the line fell under the control of Network SouthEast who rejuvenated the line with total resignalling and brand new 75/90mph Class 165 DMUs. Nowadays, services are operated by Chiltern Railways with a motley fleet of DMUs and a few Class 68-hauled diagrams.

    Stations and route length

    The 36mi 22ch long route features 14 stations at, from south to north, London Marylebone, Wembley Stadium, Sudbury & Harrow Road, Sudbury Hill Harrow, Northolt Park, South Ruislip, West Ruislip, Denham, Denham Golf Club, Gerrads Cross, Seer Green and Jordans, Beaconsfield, High Wycombe, Saunderton and Princes Risborough

    Rolling stock and service patterns

    The route would be set in the early 2000s, with the operator as Chiltern Railways (M40 Trains). The company at the time operated services out of Marylebone using solely Class 165/0 75mph DMUs and 100mph Class 168/1 DMUs (with revised front end)

    Class 165/0 (CR M40)

    1Yxx London Marylebone - Banbury (1tph)
    2Axx London Marylebone - Aylesbury via Princes Risborough (1tph)
    2Gxx London Marylebone - High Wycombe (1tph)
    2Gxx London Paddington - Gerrads Cross (1tpd either way)

    Class 168/1 (CR M40)

    1Gxx London Marylebone - Birmingham Snow Hill (1tph)

    Why are you spamming the same idea twice? Reported.

    To be fair it is in a different era and also includes a 168 as part of the suggestion unlike the other one.

    He could have done it as an addendum to his own existing post, an either/ or option.

    Yeah I was going more for this. Reporting seems a little bit of an extreme action, but that’s the DTG forums for you

    Thinking about it I think this may be the better of the eras to have as it gives us the 165 and 168 which adds another two classes of modern dmu to the game.
