    Well since DTG’s focus is on high speed then I’d assume we still do have a chance to see them get added to TSW.

    They could remake it for TSW2

    If it’s not been added then what is the point in tsw2 deluxe coming with east coastway?

    Just saw the new update on TSW2 roadmap with GWE added. Before we get any class 387 or class 800, we can repaint the class 377 and class 395 into GWR and run it on GWE!

    A few years later, we have the class 387 coming with the brighton mainline, hopefully this means it gets added to the GWR, all it would need is a new livery, and some wiring above the tracks.

    No reason to annoy people with any replacements. At this point i want to use the opportunity to suggest the cl57 like in the picture. Screenshot_20210920-111644_Chrome.jpg

    For GWE in its current form, the best options for dlc are...

    Class 57 with Mk3 sleeper stock
    Class 165 dmu
    Class 180 dmu

    These were all in service around 2015 before the wires were completed.
    The Class 387 and 800 series would better suit a more recent version of any part of the GWML as we will almost certainly never get the current rendition of London Paddington to Reading. As far as a current rendition of GWR routes, it might be worth including the Class 769 (former 319) tri modes in areas surrounding Reading as they are pretty much in the fleet now.

    I would love this, just something a little extra to give the route something a little special :)

    In my opinion this is the most neglected route so far. Never had a proper dlc.

    That can fit this route and BML Reigate Branch to Gatwick Airport with class 166 also from GWML London Paddington to reading.

    With the relatively minor work required, I am surprised that the Class 165 hasn't been done already.

    Those are a must since they have more formations

    New Wiring isn't happening.

    GWE is set as the wires are going up, and will stay that way. Unless you're talking about a Heathrow Express 387 to Hayes & Harlington, it's practically off the cards.
