I'm wondering if we can hope for exciting announcements at railfest, such as which new routes are planned to come (I'm really hoping for a Dutch one like Enschede - Amersfoort CS or the German Köln - Wuppertal with an ICE 2). Maybe they'll even tease some of the features of this year's core update . Of course Railfest is aimed at all railfans, and the info given there will probably be mainly aimed at drawing new players in, which will probably mean they won't get too technical. Maybe the fact that railway companies like Amtrak and ÖBB are present would give them a chance to announce routes from these operators, though that would probably be mostly a coincidence. Anyways, let me know what you're thinking or hoping will be announced .
