    Mine would be any line out of Gloucester uk, namely because it's my home city, but also because in the 60's and early 70's it was a major railway centre of action with 2 main line train stations next to each other and loads of different workings both freight and passenger so plenty loco types to drive and enjoy, so wondering what other folks are dreaming of??

    Anything in the south east I would like to see. Even if it meant a Class 377 route again. I would like to see some more of the slam door trains too. A timetable from the early 2000s with the new and old trains I wouldn't mind seeing.

    Paddington to Bristol and with the line to Oxford circa. 1976 with Westerns, class 47' and class 117, 121 and 123 dmu's. Maybe a class 119 as well. That would cover it although a class 31 would be useful too.

    Really don't know why they never let you use the Western on the Paddy to Reading route in the current game, would've loved to nail it a long at full speed in the 52.

    Yes I agree, there was a railtour on the ECW so they could have developed one for Paddington to Reading.

    Would be better if there was a period setting for it though. There is something evocative about a tatty Western with a rake of mark 1's in the mid 70's, although it is quite a sad sight too!

    I can't keep up with these new units! A 390 seems modern to me but they are approaching 20 years old. Class 91's and mark 4's still seem modern even, I can't believe that they will scrap them, seems mad to me!

    I love all trains but have to agree with you about the 52's, actually going so far to say all of the WR diesel-hydraulic's just had more personality to them we definitely need Warships and Hymecks in TSW.

    Yes, I agree we shouldn't forget the class 22 either.

    The Western Region always had a unique identity and I think the hydraulics were part of that, especially when British Railways was trying to be very corporate, the Western Region was having none of it, naming their express diesels and painting them maroon when green was the prescribed colour. They did it again when they named the class 50's at a time when BR had really moved away from naming engines.

    Totally forgot about the class 22 they worked on the forest of dean branches before they slowly all closed, same also the mighty class 14, one of the shortest living classes in BR history

    I think mine would be Amtrak Cascades or maybe just regular Amtrak services in the Seattle area, with BNSF freight and some Boeing cars mixed in, kind of like the west end of Stevens Pass for TS. The waterfront views would be gorgeous, along with the beautiful green, white and brown on the Cascades SC-44s, F59PHIs, and F40PH Cabbages with the Talgo trainsets.

    I know they have it in TS but I would love to have London to Brighton and then maybe a portal which then links up to Brighton to Eastbourne and Seaford.

    West Coast Mainline from Rugby to Stafford via Birmingham surely wouldn't be too much to ask - Stoppers, semi-fasts and express services all included

    I would like to see that too, certainly preferably to the route through Lichfield and Rugeley.

    Maybe with the Northampton loop as well. In fact with Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury included you could have some more choice and all those lovely semaphores at Shrewsbury.

    ECML is a safe bet, but I would love something with a big container port where you could load flatbeds with shunters, and use bigger locomotives to haul them to and fro.

    Not sure if such a place exists, but it was my favourite environment to make on Trainz back in the day.

    Manchester Metrolink. The original lines. Bury to Altrincham with the Piccadilly spur on. If they could have more of the lines on even better.

    1. Rocky Mountain Railroad. Driving through the valleys of the Rocky Mountains, over impressive steel bridges and long tunnels.

    2. Alaska Railroad.

    3. Transsibirian Railway. Beginning at Moscow. Driving thousands of miles through Siberia. Passing the Baikal lake. Arriving the Pacific at Wladiwostok. Impressive double electric locos with more than 10000 hp pull very long freight trains. Even they are not so long like northamerican or Australien freight trains. :)

    Eurocity Paris-Moscow, Eurostar London-Paris (the shortest), Maple Leaf Toronto-New York...or some "old" Trans Europ Express (TEE) in a cross-countries service like for example Rome-Munchen with max speed up to 200km/h across "Direttissima" route.

    I second that idea, the scenery would be epic, set in the 80's with 26 and 27's I'd be pretty happy with that.

    I'd love an extension of the GWE, to cover the Thames Branches. Greenford, Windsor, Marlow and Henley. They'd make for something different to the A-B routes

    Personally would love to see London Liverpool Street to Ipswich (as they have most of the assets in TS) with both old Class 90 and Mk3's and also the Stadler 745's and 755's with the 321's and 360's running the stoppers.

    It would also include the Braintree branch line, the Sudbury line, the Felixstowe branch, Lowesoft branch and the Harwich branch. Plenty of stations for stopping at, and a fair bit of high speed running. This line would probably be a lot busier than the Great Western route.

    Then there is the huge amount of intermodal freight running towards Felixstowe port (Terminate journeys at Trimley for the North rail terminal or Felixstowe Beach for the South Rail terminal) and Stratford for routing over the North London Line to the WCML.

    North London Line would be a great idea as they have the route on Train Simulator already, so could convert the assets.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you see a South Western route at some point in the future as they have the rights to Portsmouth to London Waterloo and also to Bournemouth.
