    Just wondering which third party devs people like the most. mine is probably DTM because I own a lot of their stuff and nearly all of it has been exceeding my expectations of devs like RSC and even DTG.

    For me, it's a tie between Smokebox and G-trax.

    -DTM: Decent locos usually bundled with new rolling stock.
    -Smokebox: Excellent Steam Locomotives
    -Reppo: Exellent Pro Range Locos
    -G-Trax/VNHRR/Great Northerner: Great Routes from this group. Unfortunately G-Trax's steam locos haven't aged well...
    -Milepost Simulations: Currently the only developer of retail Canadian Routes for TS20XX
    -Union Workshop: Only developer of Japanese routes for TS 20XX

    I love Armstrong powerhouse the trains look great but the sounds, wow brilliant. Cannot drive default stock now.

    I also like what Alan Thompson is doing with his site too

    Armstrong Powerhouse - Superb modelling and texturing. Good physics, great sounds, though I think their rolling stock is too quite, especially wagons.
    Bossman Games - Similar to AP (above) who they collaborate with. Their Welsh Marches route is probably the best modelled UK route.
    Chris Trains - Excellent after sale service with continual updating and improvement of models. Accurate modelling, but textures seem a bit matt to me.
    3DZug - Best sounds I've ever heard on rolling stock. Good external modelling. Lovely internal carriage modelling, probably the best in TS.
    Virtual Railroads - Almost complete fidelity to real life, but texturing can be a bit matt.
    Just Trains - A bit variable, but when they are good they are very good. Recent routes impress.
    Victory Works - Recent steam locos are some of the best British locos available. Earlier products are good, but need updating to current standards.
