    Had a new suggestion probably a bit of a stupid one how about a eurostar route probably can't do it beacuse of licensing but it would be cool

    Would be nice. I would suggest Ashford International to Lille. This would then mean you can have a decent run for the Eurostar but also include some freight services to Dollands Moor through the tunnel using Class 92s.
    If it went all the way to London St Pancras to start with, it would be too long to go through the tunnel which, in my opinion, is the part that would have to be included.
    Starting content could be Class 92 and a Class 373. Then DLC could include a Class 374.

    It would only need to get as far as Ebbsfleet if route merging were introduced.

    Maybe that could be an extension? And then an extension to Brussels from Lille. That would be great.

    Ah damn. That’s a right shame. What about Euro Tunnel? Or are they all under the same company?

    I would start at St Pancras as it’ll give a good 1hr+ as alot of the routes only last between 30-60min tsw

    They were - they are no longer publishing it. Not sure if someone else will pick it up but that route has been in development almost as long as Duke Nukem Forever

    Eurotunnel is a different company so the main problem will be with Eurostar, I wonder if it’s because of the SNCF again lol

    Well Eurostar have always been awkward, remember some dev's in MSTS days getting a nastygram from their lawyers.

    That said Eurostar and Thalys are merging (announced today for completion next year), so that might change things in the future
