    3rd Rail & Catenary Sparks For Electric Trains
    I Would love to see this added in future update,adds more realism to the simulation.Sounds cool,looks cool especially in tunnels,at night and gets even crazier in winter.If
    You can make an "option" to turn "off/on" it Would cater to everyone .

    Totally behind this - easy, relatively small addon, would add a lot of depth to the TSW catalog of electric routes.

    That's What i was thinking if it would possible be to add to an update.Relatively small realistic feature with a noticeable change

    DTG should improve the lighting effects during night. Lighting effects are better for early morning and sunset but when we drive at night it becomes dead dark even when the train is at some station..They need to fix it urgently...

    Catenary sparks have been visible in TS for several years; their absence does seem odd in TSW.

    Definitly adding this feature will add realism to the LIRR railroad and this can be added to if dovetails ever does a dlc based on the PATH Train or MTA New York Subway System.

    While we’re at it, can we make the HST do a cold start up in the winter? :cool:



    (didn’t mean to undermine this thread but thought some of you might find this interesting- not my video so credit goes to the video owner)

    DGT shut up and take my money! I am all for this 100%. The demo videos got me really excited. If you want donations just say we'll gladly give you some money if its not an easy task. Youve come far with TSW. It's gonna be great

    The sparks can get very bad LOL
