    It's also possible they could implement the manned pushers up part of the route, that would be interesting to drive.

    Personally, I don't think the ICE will even be included- they usually have no more than 3 driving cabs per route, we've already seen two, and they need something to pull freight (My guess is the BR 151 because it's used in pusher service). I would guess that the ICE will be a separate DLC, at least at some point.

    Of course, I could be very wrong, I mean just two days ago we thought this was in Rostock.

    Could you point me to the teaser threads for the Class 33 and the Long Island Railroad? I must have missed them. The last teaser thread I remember was for RSN, seven months ago, back in June 2018.

    I know it may be hard to believe that DTG actually listened to the community and took action, but I think in this instance it's just too much of a coincidence to have a thread asking for a return of the teasers, then just over a week later a teaser appears. I'm glad they listened and took action.

    LIRR was teased at least with a picture of a signal. The two loco DLC where not teased. But thats a good thing because you could expect a route and then it would only 1 loco

    The LIRR hint was not posted on the forum. Here it is on Twitter.

    They have begun to listen some (not enough, but some), but this isn't really an example of that.

    Yup, and they didn't do a teaser for the GP40-2 either. Locos have always just come out of nowhere.

    If the ICE was to be included, I think we would have seen the same images, but with an ICE instead, it would really hype up the new route.

    Also, usually we guess enough by the third teaser, these don't go on forever. Hopefully we will find out a lot more today with a full announcement.

    While I hope for ICE train in this route, I don't think we're getting it. What we are getting is different Dosto control cab, BR 146 for passenger trains and BR Something™ for freight. If you look at previous German route, you had 2 locomotives + the control cab. With the last release (NTP) we got different Class 47 along with two new trains, the Class 45 and 101.

    So I think BR 146 + control cab and BR FreightPuller™ are most probable.
    Or less possible variant - BR 146 + control cab, BR 143 or BR 185 imported from RSN for freight AND ICE for express trains. I would prefer this variant, but ICE would probably have been teased already.
    But as Raildan said above, "just two days ago we thought this was in Rostock". Until we get the official announcement, nothing is set in stone.

    Big thanks to TrainSim-Dmitri for the teasers, much appreciated! :)

    Maybe they are just saving the best for the last. Speculations are what keeps the hype going.

    I agree with you on this it is nice to see the teasers are back allowing everyone to take their best shot at what the new route will be. Since the hiring of Dmitri it appears there is a lot more listening to us. Although there is still room for improvement on that front but at least it looks as if they're trying to listen now..

    The hopes are now as you said that with that with the new open communication now maybe they will go back over the existing routes and fix what needs to fixed. As you put it we would speak less with our voices, and would more willing to speak with our wallets is prefectly put.

    DTG please keep up the effort in listening to us, it would go a long way in building TSW into a great Sim.

    There were no teasers for these that is something I would have remembered seeing for the LIRR and the Class 33. You are right the last teaser they did was for the RSN route. It is nice to see that they brought it back again, I enjoy the excitement of trying to guess would it would be from the images they show us.

    No, there WAS a teaser for LIRR, and there were never any teasers for loco DLC, including the GP40-2.

    Again, here is the LIRR hint: https://twitter.com/railsimulator/status/1055475037489299456?s=20

    (I should add that I already pointed this out...)

    We will always find something new to speculate on.
    For example, the date of 21.2.2019 in the first teaser - release date or announcement date?

    edit: Or we could speculate why it says Mi 21.2.2019 when it's not Mittwoch/Wednesday.

    Yeah, they didn't officially post it on this forum, but there was plenty of community discussion on it in here on other threads.

    Either way, there is no point in arguing that DTG "brought back hints" when they only skipped one route during a busy time of year (NTP). They have listened on... one or two other things, yes... but not this because they never really stopped.

    Also, I said all of this on this same thread in response to digital draftsman.

    Sorry if I'm coming across a bit harsh, and I really didn't mean to, I just don't like this kind of misinformation. There was a hint for LIRR, missing a route during a busy holiday season is understandable, they didn't stop doing hints to begin with. End of story.

    Teasing an IC or ICE would immediately give away the entire route. IC and ICE trains use the high speed line to Würzburg.

    We know that the teased screenshots are taken in a station east of Aschaffenburg (Lohr or Heigenbrücken), and that the train's destination is Aschaffenburg Hbf. So, if they'd tease an IC/ICE, we'd know that we're gonna get Aschaffenburg - Würzburg.

    By only focusing on the dosto, it's still in the open if we're going to Gemünden (Main), Würzburg, or Würzburg via HSL. :)

    I not finding what you said as harsh in anyway, what needs to be understood by DTG is not everyone has a Twitter or Facebook account and that they should be posting across all of their platforms.

    Personally, I wish there was an Ice.
    Otherwise, this line will look like RSN, which I like a lot.

    If we don't get an announcement today, I would assume that the announcement will be on the date on the screen. If we do get an announcement today, that might be a release date or preorder date.
    He's talking about this thread. You're already here.

    Looks like quite an scenic route but I have to say I am disappointed they choose to reuse the 185.2 as freightloco, this makes the 146.2 the only actual new train if you own ruhr sieg north.

    And yes you can say the 185.2 has an different livery and the Doppelstockwagen is an slightly different variant but it's still an 4th generation which makes the trainset too similar to Ruhr Sieg North.

    Have to say, I was expecting more :(
    52 km route RE trains take 40 minutes to get across.
    1 new loco 2 freight wagons.
    1 reused loco, 1 control cab and 2 freight wagons

    This makes it the shortest DE route for TSW and 2nd/3rd shortest route overall (not sure if NEC is longer or shorter).

    edit: Looking at cab ride video, the route looks quite scenic, so that's a plus. And we get working display signs. But for my money, I would still prefer either the route being longer or having a new freight loco.

    Yeah, 2 new freight wagons is nice... still a disappointment to me also, though. Not sure whether I'll buy it.

    ICE is probably not coming as a DLC because there isn't anything that it could replace.

    I know the last two loco DLC have followed this restriction, but not all loco DLC will be like that. Remember, we're getting an NTP loco DLC that adds freight,something not on the route at all.
