Remember only one
158, one of the very first trains I ever boarded and one of the main trains I look for when train spotting
Since my absolute favorite among the trains is already in development (DB BR 232), I choose the DMU DB BR 642 Siemens Desiro Classic
S stock London Underground
I'd like to see the German crocodile BR193 or E93, because for me it's a real beauty
I'd like the majesty that is the Deltic....because well it's a friggin' Deltic
I’d like to see the Swiss Crocodile. There is one parked at the end of my road on the site of the Maschinenfabrik Oerlikon where they used to be built.
This is a hard question to answer... I have a lot of trains I want to see in TSW, lots and lots!
I decided to pick something that hasn't been done, tilting trains! And there's no better place to start than with the BR Class 370, otherwise known as the APT-P
To accommodate this unit, TSW would need an 80s version of the WCML ideally near 100 miles long because of the 155mph speeds it would achieve using the C-APT system. There's also a lack of Intercity liveries in TSW and as nice as BR blue is, I personally think it needs to take a back seat for a bit.
Class 423 Slammer on a Kent route preferably.
DB BR 103
ABDe 4/4 481–486 (built 1957/58 by SWS and BBC) on RhB Arosa line before re-electrification 1997
A Deltic and literally anything else but a Pa*er.
Would have to be a Class 91, I think it’s quite probable one will come to TSW at some point
BR101 Cab Car (IC steuerwagen)
The thameslink class 700
Very tough choice but I’m going with the class 58
(Not my picture)
Has to be a class 360! I have many fond memories of them along the Sunshine Coast Line
This thing is just a beast. I live next to Schiphol international airport. The sound and the looks of this locomotive is stunning and never get's old.
SŽ 664 - "Regan" based on EMD G26. The sound is a beast.
I would love to see the OBB Railjet, hauled by the Taurus (DB BR 182) WITH a cab car. Top speed: 230 kmh
For something that will never make it to TSW2, The Maharaja express would be a pleasure to haul.
There's something so special about being able to haul a 7 star hotel on wheels
(oops, that's more than one)
I wouldn't be surprised if the license costs more than what DTG earns in money per month
I would love to see a class 58
Class 142 Pacer (specifically Northern Spirit refurbs). Unfortunately, there's no appropriate routes for it yet.
I'm going to go for Night Riviera pulled by Class 57 on GWE.
Norfolk And Western J-Class #611 That’s me at the throttle! I think she is one of the finest locomotives ever built in the USA.
A bit hard to say, but I love this one. It is quite old and in real life no longer operational. Normally you can see it in the Dutch National Railway Museum in Utrecht. For some time it was parked here in Boekelo at the site of an awesome Dutch railway museum line.

Class 365 because it's a lovely 'happy' train!
This german behemoth, the V 320
UK CL86 or 87 (don't mind which) + a route to drive them on

Yup, I had to check it up. Under EU law it is copyrighted by the museum and sharing/using etc for commercial use without consent is not permitted. Thou I doubt that the museum minds it being used in forums and shared around. I might be wrong thou.

It's not commercial use. Rudolf isn't using it to advertise something, nor are they a company. I think their use of the image comes under Editorial use.
I am a bit confused. Is this a photo from the museum's site, or is it a photo which Rudolf took at the museum?
I would love to see the Br class 124s
they would fit right in on Northern Trans Pennine
Curious, I am quite convinced I made this photgraph in 2006 during a holiday, Might be I am mistaken ....
The old electric loco SŽ 363, it's powerful sound is just impressive
Yes! Yes! Yes!
LIRR DM30AC that means we can actually use both Penn Station end Long Island City as its endpoints complete with C3 coaches
Nice, hopefully DTG can make another Canadian route but this time with heavy freight locos like this one instead of switchers.
Which version is it Tier 4 EGR 3000s Union Pacific or EPA Tier 3 version?
My favorite locomotive I would like to see
the GP9 in this livery
That is the standard SD70ACe, the one that they show has actually been scrapped after being wrecked in the Chatsworth Train Crash.
The Tier 4 SD70ACe's look a lot different from the earlier SD70ACe's.
Thank you for telling me about it since most American Railway magazines focus more on the Tier 4 Version which is the 3000 series Union Pacific.
Its twin, a little more battered:
The default version is the one shown, the Tier 4 version looks like this:
