    this route takes you through Milton Keynes, rugby and Birmingham international the route uses two train operators:
    Virgin trains and London Northwestern
    Virgin trains uses:
    Class 221’s

    And class 390’s

    London northwestern would use for this route
    Class 350’s

    And maybe there could be an option for multiple unit trains like:
    A 12 car class 350 or a 10 car class 221
    What do you think about this idea

    Too recent. Licensing would be a major issue here. It's doable if they don't want the liveries and get the license for the trains themselves

    Too long as well, could be a while before we see any routes hitting the 100 miles mark

    In an ideal world, this would be brilliant. Perhaps one day...

    Well, they at least have a Virgin license, so maybe we'll see something from that one day... but not LNWR.

    The problem with Virgin Trains is that whilst they do have a license, until the editor is released they won't be able to afford to make a WCML route as all reasonable sections are too long by the current standards. It would be great to see the West Coast Main Line in Train Sim World in the future though.
