    To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the current Sand Patch tunnel, could DTG finally fix the bugs on the Sand Patch Grade route. Let's do it as a "Developer Challenge"!

    1. Fix speed limits so track signs match the HUD indications and remove all the invisible speed limits on the route.

    2. Fix the bug when HUD gives passenger train speeds for freight trains.

    3. Fix dynamic brakes in GP38-2 and SD40-2 locomotives

    4. Check whether the trains in the timetable have enough tractive power to overcome the steep gradient on the route, and provide the missing locomotives.

    5. Check that each train has an EOTD, which in the case of long and heavy freight trains is an important aid for the engeneer.

    6. Fix the sound problem with bell and horn which suddenly ceases to be heard (route reloading is then required), or when the bell sounds erratic and with strange digital reverberation.

    DTG has known about all these errors for a long time! I find it very frustrating that DTG puts all the effort into producing new DLCs while their first route for TSW still has so many unrepaired bugs!

    For God's sake, this route is three years old! Was it really impossible to fix a dozen details during this time?! After all, if you provided us with a decent editor, everyone would fix most of these bugs by themselves in a few hours, just like we've been fixing your flaws in Train Simulator for years.

    I also believe that with each DLC in the Steam store there should be an up-to-date list of known bugs so that the customer can see how underdeveloped this product is. It would be fair of you.

    Checked. No information about any work on the Sand Patch route. They only fix bugs in newer DLCs.

    That's why I propose The Anniversary Challenge for DTG, to finally repair all the flaws in the Sand Patch route to celebrate this way the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the current Sand Patch tunnel.

    They don't make us wait 150 years, are they?

    Excelent tactic ;)
    Make us wait just a little longer until SimRail 2021 is released and we won't need anything from DTG anymore.
    Because it looks like the impossible will soon become reality and we will get the railway equivalent of MS Flight Simulator :)
