    I don't understand :
    Why we can run the 37 on east Coastway but not on WSR
    Why we can run the 20 on WSR but not on East Coastway
    Why we can run the 101 on Tees and Tpe but not on any of the other routes

    Why does TS offer this and not TSW? 37s are proper heritage locos why can't they be used on a heritage line like the 47, and the tees 08?
    I've had a ride behind a 20 on the east Coastway on a pathfinder buffer puffer tour, so its not like it's out of guage?

    100% agree. I bought the class 52 thinking one day it might be allowed to visit it's original route out of Paddington. Now it's going nowhere. Why no class 31 on the Trans Pennine? Class 47 on Tees Valley? Both were active on those routes and are in plausible liveries so why not? You'd think they'd do something to make us feel better about our dlcs being "preserved". This might help.

    The class 20 isn't on east coastway because the line speed of the 20 is too low to make the service viable. This is a guess

    Choppers are capable of decent line speed, albeit not the maximum, but still good. Therefore no reason why not.

    For DTG to allow us to use our locomotives more widely, is the least they can do for us before moving over completely to the new (and as present, somewhat disappointing) TSW2.

    They are not suitable for hauling the train used for the special in East Coastway, which is where all the other locos from other routes appear. It doesn’t have the horsepower. It also can’t be used as a double unit because of the way the substitution system works in the game.

    The class 52 is not able to be used on GWE because GWE is not set at the time that class 52s ran.

    That is true, but they were heavily used on the line historically until 1977.

    I know this. I was suggesting it could run an excursion similar to the ones on East Coastway.

    There’s no point suggesting ways of doing it because it’s too late, all these routes and locos have just been retired. Besides, if the 52 was going to be used in GWE it would have been done ages ago. It’s just not going to happen.

    Yeah think we need a route editor and I don't see why we cant use other locomotives on other lines like a rail tour sort of thing or visiting locomotives to branch lines
