    Description: Catenary wires are floating in the air, not connected to anything.

    Steps: Exact steps to reproduce the issue.

    1. Boot TSW
    2. Select Scenario "Down The Line" in the Great Western Express pack.
    3. Get into the class 166 at platform 10 and begin the scenario.
    4. Notice the section of broken catenary between 3.0 - 3.1 miles outside Ealing Broadway.


    Actual result: Catenary wires are floating in the air, not connected to anything.

    Expected result: Catenary wires should be connected to each other.

    DTG stated that the wires on GWE are just for ‘scenery/decoration’ which may explain the lack of quality control.

    Though on electrified routes currently in TSW, there is a lot of catenary and other things missing so I’d say their knowledge of overhead wire and catenary systems is ‘basic’.

    Though it may be done on a basic level due to time constraints.
