    Since the TSW2020 update I have noticed that the Greenford Branch services are now on Xbox- however, are there any new services besides them?

    Really? I looked for new services in GWE but didn't see any.

    Figured it out, I quit the 1W14 Paddington-Didcot Parkway service in journey mode, and suddenly got the extra services. I might post this in a bug section later

    Absolutely, there has been lots of optimisation in the 2020 update. In fact every patch has made performance better and better.

    Gonna see if I can recreate it. Hopefully this is fixed and the services are permanently added.

    Only downside is if u leave GWR it removes them ( for me anyway) so u have to repeat the process

    GWE has been given more services definitely. Earlier I was cruising by the side of another 166 for a good few minutes and one passed too. Rolled into Paddington with a HST and 166 right behind me and a 166 was already in Paddington when I arrived.

    Can confirm this works. services jumped from 274 to 337. If you leave GWE menu and go back you lose the additional services.

    Clearly not intended but they should make it an official option as it runs fairly okay on Xbox 1 x

    As stands I will use it when I want to run the shorter Greenford timetable. Thanks for the find.

    So this hack gives you the "missing" services and longer HSTs?

    Are there any other routes that have less services than on PC other than GWE?

    Also, gameplay is fine and doesn’t totally explode consoles, so addition of these full time could be possible

    Yes, Reading and paddington seem to have some life again, hsts has gone from 274- 337 and the 166 has gone from 166-229, i hàve the xbox 1s, and handles the extra services fine

    Im going to check this on PS4 later. If you dont need to save the game mid route very often. Maybe save service 1W14 in the journey. So you can skip straight to last played, Quit then start on the improved timetable again?

    DTG, are you working on expansions on GWE routes? Or placing other non-GWE lines that circulate between Paddington and Reading?
