    As i have mentioned a few times, there were once several branch lines leaving the GWE mainline up until the 1960's.
    Some still survive and could be used as they are today and they are...

    West Ealing to Greenford
    Southall to Brentford Waste Transfer
    West Drayton to Colnbrook
    Slough to Windsor Central
    Maidenhead to Bourne End/Marlow
    Twyford to Henley on Thames

    A further set could be created to reflect the lines as the were, pre Beeching cuts as follows...

    Southall to Brentford Dock
    West Drayton to Staines West
    West Drayton to Uxbridge Vine Street
    Slough to Windsor Central (large station)
    Maidenhead to High Wycombe/Marlow
    Twyford to Henley on Thames (large station)

    These two books are a invaluable resource for learning more about the lines and their evolution.

    As nice as this would be I feel as though DTG wont go back to a route this old especially control there are still tons of bugs on this route that were there on release and still have NOT been fixed. XD

    I have proposed these, and other suggestions to Rivet games. The response was somewhat positive and we shall see if they fancy creating some new DLC.

    Only with section left. Sort of. Heathrow Connect and Express. Won't come anytime soon since DTG don't have the licence. (Not forgetting the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines)
