    i agree that it's one of the routes that would welcome an update. Maybe this time to include Moorgate and the loop branch line, even Cambridge.

    The 387, when released, will help freshen it up but a Desiro City 700/717 and an updated 800 in Azuma colours would be awesome and like the 387, the Desiro City and Pro 800 series would be of use elsewhere on the TS network.

    Is there any reason why? If DTG do it they will charge money and pretty much all reskins are freeware and not too hard to install.

    It has a few payware requirements but it's very detailed.

    Yes, well aware of the excellent Backdated Sim version. Wouldn't hurt to include it in a full Great Northern Release though.

    It would not be economically viable for DTG to release a new route or reskins. People can already get this for free. if anything they will only do the class 717

    So DTG wouldn't do an updated, expanded version of an existing route? *Cough* Portsmouth *cough* SNCF Riviera *splutter* North & South Wales Coast.

    Most of this stuff is in game anyway. The ECMLS doesn’t really need updating anyway. Compared to the OG Portsmouth Direct Line it’s much better. The stock suggested is either in game or being developed (with the exception of a 717) and there’s an extension to Royston too. There are many other routes in TS that need some more updating than ECMLS.

    Why? Why would it be "good" if DTG specifically did it? It's commonly acknowledged that other companies produce very good add ons for the game, in some cases improving greatly on DTG produced units

    Ah, the old "I don't agree with you but rather than explaining and having a constructive discussion I'm just going to click on the cross" technique
    If you want to make a point, make it.

    It seems that some people have concerns about using 3rd party sites. Could be they're worried about on-line security or don't know how to install freeware. Or maybe they just cannot be bothered to look beyond the DTG/Steam catalogue.

    Whatever the reason, they are missing out on a lot of good quality content and it's their loss. I'd say that 50% of my content is 3rd party and I'm very happy with it.
