    This is, of course, brilliantly useful, and took some effort to put together.

    But I don't see why it was not possible for DTG to publish their own set of manuals. ???!!!???

    Surely this is a very very basic thing that could be done, quickly and easily, by DTG. And kept current. In TSW2020, the introductory scenarios now even refer to a manual that is available. They don't say that you will have to search some Forums for them, and download them from a third-party Google drive belonging to another player....!

    And surely, given that DTG has all of the relevant data, how hard would it be for them to produce the timetables, if that's what the community wants? Their developers have programmed the simulation to use a specific timetable, so they have the data at their fingertips. It's part of the design specification. It's a two minute job to release them.

    Don't let this detract from anything that you've done to help people - it's just a shame that you and others feel the need to do stuff like this, which would be so very easy for DTG to do, and arguably, with respect to the manuals, they might, strictly speaking, be legally required to do.

    They do provide the manuals on the relevant Steam pages of each DLC.
    The first manuals for the Founders Edition were even shared in a Dovetail Live Article.

    They seem to think that releasing them on the Steam page is enough.
    This List was compiled because it seemed to be the case that a lot of Console players of course didnt know that because why would you look on steam.
    So yeah they could have done it better, including them on the Store pages or something like that. But since they havent, we are updating the list regularly for those searching :P

    Unfortunately the OP isnt that active at the moment, so i cant update the 1st post of this Thread.
    I will use this post to summarize all available Manuals.
    I will update this Post in the future with new releases.

    All of the manual links supplied by forum members are certainly useful and appreciated, but they beg the question of why on earth DTG cannot or will not simply make each DLC's user manual part of its download in the first place. This has always been done with TS (formerly TR) DLC, so why deliberately keep the TSW manuals hidden? I would really like to have a dev -- any dev from the deck -- to reply to this question.

    See they might have got Feedback in the past that the majority of people didnt want them on their Machine or they made the decision because its super easy to get them on the Steam Page of the DLC for most of the people.

    Might not be the easiest way for you (and a not so great way for console users) but thats how they supply them.
    So you can either check out the DLC Page on Steam after it launched to grab the manual or bookmark this Post:

    This is a problem. I expect there are many console users out there completely unaware of any manuals existing, which is often why repeat questions keep getting asked. Why they can't be included on the main page of each route or loco is a mystery. The introductory tutorials usually end with "A full manual is available" but don't give any indication of where they are or that you need another device to access them!

    Appreciate you keeping the links up to date xD 2Bad4You. Bookmarked. Keep up the good work. :)

    Thanks for keeping this list up to date -- too bad DTG doesn't care enough to do this or, much better, just include the manual in each downloaded DLC. Shame on them!
