    This route is a great combination of high speed travel and commuter trains. The Class 390 and 350 are also incredible in my opinion, they would be an awesome edition to the game.

    Keeping in mind that there's nada chance of seeing the entire WCML in the game, which section of the route would you want to see?

    WCML would be great! I would like to see Crewe to Warrington including Arpley yard :)

    Exactly the problem. Euston to Milton Keynes at the southern end might be doable, or Coventry to Wolverhampton. However the extent seen in the various TS sections, Glasgow to Carlisle, Carlisle to Preston etc seems unlikely to become a reality.

    would definitely love to see Euston, maybe it could be possible to stretch as far as Milton Keynes?

    My preference would be London Euston to Milton Keynes with the Watford DC line. Would open up a lot more variety with intercity (390), regional (350) and Overground (378 or 710s. Unsure which run on this route but both could realistically end up in game once day) services (and the bakerloo line 72 stock could be used to layer in AI services between Harrow and Wealdstone and Queens Park).

    Edit: Q, Is there any freight for freight fans?

    So here is my suggestion in full.

    West Coast Main Line Preston to Carlisle Distance Aprrox 90miles/145km

    Leaving Preston you get the speed section up to Lancaster Photo is taken near Barton P1040563m.JPG
    After Lancaster you pass Hest Bank (Photo 2) and Carnforth. Hest Bank is the only part of the WCML which actually is on the coast.
    P1020007m.JPG

    After Carnforth you head up to Oxenholme and the run along the edge of the Lake District and climb up past Tebay (Photo 3) and to the summit of Shap (Photo 4). Before then heading down into Penrith. The last section is another section of sprinting upto Carlisle.

    P1040408m.JPG

    For moden day you could use

    Avanti WC
    Class 221 Super Voyager
    Class 390 Pendolino

    Trans Pennine Express
    Class 185
    Class 397 Nova 2
    Class 350/4 (Which was replaced by the Nova 2s).
