Introduction The Great Western Mainline is a scenic and Historic route connecting London to Wales and the West Country. Operated primarily by GWR (Great Western Railway) in the stylish Green Livery, with Classic stock such as the HST (Class 43). The route in this suggestion is Reading - Oxford and Chippenham. Across 68 miles and serving 12 stations. Set in 2015 like the original GWE. "Welcome to the Great Western Mainline, this historic mainline connecting London to Wales and the West Country. Serve the line between Reading and Chippenham, and to wonderful Oxford, with the classic Class 43, and the Class 166." Rolling Stock Included Class 43 HST (Ideally both liveries) Class 166 'Networker Turbo' (Upgraded) (Ideally both liveries) Upgrades: Train Destination Boards, In-train PIS, others to make train up to better standards. Regarding FGW Images; The images were taken with the FGW Enable mod. The images however are not mine. I suggest both liveries to be enabled, not necessarily made. Potential DLC: N/A Layers (In) I'd imagine the 66 layers here. Layers (Out) N/A Re-use of Rolling Stock: (From other routes) The Class 43 would be re-using the Class 43 from Great Western Express. As would the Class 166, however the latter I think should be upgraded. (From this route): Class 166 The Class 166 Upgrades would have the possibility of being able to be applied to GWE.

This looks after the 166s. GWE As most people will know, this route connects with Great Western Express (GWE) at Reading. These routes could be connected in a system of: "so you have both? Cool, here, have a merger." Or, to actually explain it, if you have both GWE and This route, you receive a free merger of GWE & This. Forming London Paddington - Oxford & Chippenham. Final Words So why this route? Well, I feel like this would add to the GWE 'Experience'. I've set the route in 2015, like the previous route, and if, and only if, GWR would allow for it, perhaps have the FGW Liveries added as well? I realise this may not be possible, but it would really add to the route. And then, if possible, they could be added to GWE as well. Now we have the ability to use alternate liveries easily I doubt this would be too much of a practical problem. As for Rolling Stock; I've chosen to use the exact same trains. Why? I hear someone typing, well, it's simple. The route is quite lengthy, and reducing the time required to make Locos, helps make this more Practical. Thanks for reading.
