    In order to complete the feel of the upcoming Rivet Games Island Line, I would like to suggest the following as add ons. Screenshot_2020-09-18-23-34-09-1.png
    Class 03 BR Blue
    Screenshot_2020-09-18-23-34-28-1.png
    Class 03 NSE

    Class 05 BR Blue

    Class 285/286 Vec/Tis units in BR Blue and NSE liveries.

    Also a few suitable wagons and brake vans for the shunters.
    This would round off the electrified era of stock choices to use on the line.

    The class 485/486 trains would be good to see. The only problem I see is that if Smallbrook Junction station is modelled, I'm not sure the 485s and 486s were still in passenger service by the time the station was built.

    Hopefully they could model the Class 484 when they are released.
    Class 03 would be great. Not sure what they did though.

    Like various other routes and the scenario planner function, the choice is there to suspend reality a bit. But you are not forced to.

    This would be a bit tricky as the line is being altered (lowered?) before the 484's are launched.

    Just been looking at Wikipedia and had no idea how extensive the network once was on IoW. Lines to Bembridge, Newport, Cowes and Freshwater. Lots of scope for vintage lines to be added if desired.

    Yes. There is practically a fifth of what was originally there. It’s a real shame.

    Yeah, it wouldn't bother me personally and, as you say, it's giving people a choice whether they want it or not. I suppose the biggest hurdle would be having something to model it off, the London Transport Museum does have some standard stock coaches but I don't think they are running so sounds might be a bit difficult.
    As elarthur says, the line is being altered quite a bit before the introduction of the 484s with the passing loop at Brading being reinstated and the track being lowered in stations and under a couple of bridges. But that wouldn't completely rule out having them as a DLC.

    I am glad that my suggestions are of interest to our community. This is a great addition from a third party developer with lots of opportunity for expansion. Exciting times for TSW.
