    Hull to Doncaster and Hull to Leeds (to join up with NTP). Deltics, Class 123 / 124 DMUs; 31/4s on Passenger (Hull to Carlisle via Leeds), 03's at Hull Paragon, 20's, 31's, 37's, 40's, 45's, 46's, 47's on freight. Set around 1980 - 1985. BR Blue, although 40106 is always welcome (or 40122 in Green) And class 101 and 108 DMUs

    PS. Class 13s never worked anywhere but Tinsley.

    I'm not sure why you're talking about the 455; I said that if they got a full SWR license the PDL would likely include the Class 701, 458 and 444, not the 455, which will soon be withdrawn.

    I am also fully aware of the Mark 3 coach design...

    Any route on which the Class 91 operates. I love the black & white LNER Intercity style.

    I made at least only 1 route suggestion and that would be for the RBM&N.
    I also thought up suggestions for Packs to existing route one I called Light Passenger Pack I made for NTP Which included the Class 124/128 with MK1 GUVs
    More recently I made a pack called Electric Legends of the Southern Region which is a sorta Diesel Legends like pack which has the Class 73/421/422/489.
    yea not much in the way of routes for me.

    If you want me to tell you what the 455 is the same design as your Class 318 common to Cathcart Circle but 750v DC Third rail Top Contact instead of 25kv 50hz. Used in SWT era

    A section of the WCML, either in the Intercity swallow era or Virgin Trains loco-hauled

    Class 87
    Class 90 (or 86) in passenger and freight liveries
    Mk3+DVT
    A multiple unit (320, 321 or 323 depending on which part it was)
    Reused freight wagon from GWE

    Outside of the UK (and what I put in the survey)

    Zurich - Pfaffikon - Sargans - Landquart - Chur

    RE 460/420 with EW4/Eurofima
    511 multiple unit
    (or 450, Kolibri, IC 2000, etc etc).

    Very scenic, busy and varied route.

    Exeter to Plymouth and/or Paignton. That section of the GWR between Dawlish Warren and Newton Abbot is gorgeous.

    Ayrshire coast. To be honest it's not even fair. Johnbwells posted it in the suggestions thread. Nothing comes close

    East London line

    Nice for people who like the Underground or national rail since it gives a mix of that

    i'm just gonna suggest a loco i don't want to get bombarded with negative comments so here goes
    GE Genesis P42DC and P40DC
    the 2 engines u c in the front of the train cars in the back that's what i want added to tsw2
    these trains r about to be retired and the new Siemens ALC-42's will replace these engines so it should work out cause y'all do have a Amtrak license since y'all do NEC routes

    Love this idea. In fact, I'd be all for extension of any of the existing lines.

    Another fantasy one from a purely personal perspective, but whenever steam does eventually come I'd like to see the Severn Valley Railway in a similar guise to West Somerset. Might not be the best for everyone but from a personal nostalgia point of view I'd be all over it.

    I would love to see the GEML with classes:321,360 and 90. Also maybe as an additional add on for further improvement the branch to southend and southminster. Or even the C2C line from fenchurch street to southend Victoria using the 357 and 387. Another thing that would be far fetched is for the GEML and C2C to be merged to simulate going via Stratford on C2C as that seems to happen every weekend.

    Mersey Rail - Wirral Line.
    Operator: Merseyrail
    Electrification: 750 V DC third rail
    Number of tracks: Two (One through loop tunnel)
    Line length: 33 miles 46 chains (54.0 km)
    Owner: Network Rail
    Stations: 34
    4 separate routes (see map below)
    Plus Oil depot collections just past Ellesmere Port station and a now disused line down to Ellesmere Port dockside, also old facility between Ellesmere Port and Overpool Stations used to load cars from Vauxhalls.
    A mix of 4 destinations, underground and over ground stations, even an over ground station that is practically underground at Green Lane.
    I presume there was at some point a line into Capenhurst nuclear power station on the line out to Chester. They used to run Nuclear waste trains on the line. Overnight train storage facilities at Rock Ferry.

    It literally has everything and the mileage and stations is about the right size for a TSW2 release.

    Or Exeter to Plymouth (or Truro, so it takes in the Albert Bridge too, as well as the coastal run past Teignmouth, Dawlish etc) PLenty of options for new or older stock on both routes.
