    This route has similarities in it's set up to Glasgow Cathcart Circle, and has many branches for unique Services.

    Services
    West & North London Lines
    • 4tph Richmond - Stratford (LO)
    • 4tph Clapham Jcn. - Stratford (LO)
    • 1tph Clapham Jcn - Milton Keynes (Starts/Ends at Shepherds Bush) (Southern, 377)
    East & South London Lines (All services LO)
    • 4tph Dalston Jcn - Clapham Jcn
    • 4tph Dalston Jcn - New Cross
    • 4tph Highbury & Isl - Crystal Palace
    • 4tph Highbury & Isl - West Croydon
    Electrification
    Similarly to Southeastern High-speed, this route has both 3rd Rail & OHLE Electrification.
    The Class 378/1 is DC (3rd Rail) Only, and the 378/2 is Dual-Voltage.
    The 710/1 doesn't feature in this route, but the /2 and /3 are both Dual-Voltage.

    The North London Line is DC from Richmond - Acton Central, with OHLE from Acton Central - Stratford.

    The South and East London Lines are both DC only, and, as shown above, only operated by 378s.

    The West London Line is also DC, but switches to AC (OHLE) when meeting the NLL.

    Thanks for reading.

    Because it doesn't connect up with the North, South, West and East Lines of the London Overground

    Very good suggestion, I love London railways. And this route could bring a lot to the game, in addition to the future possibility of joining with other routes.
    I am sure it would be a very welcome and acclaimed route by TSW2 players.
    Hopefully in the future he comes for the game.

    You have parts from the classic train simulator 21 version North London line and furthermore this plays like SEHS 25kv 50hz to 750v DC Third rail Top Contact. Class 710 interior

    Love the idea, but it would only work with two separate trains i think, as the capital star is already similar to the 377/375/378

    I don't quite get what you mean here?
    Apologies if I've missed the point but I'm slightly confused.

    This route suggestion is so good, I would even be happy if they made this instead of the South London Network. Although I suspect that SLN and NLL are going to be easier to port across, and that would be two DLCs... or possibly three......... ;-O

    One caveat - if they do make this LOL network as a TSW DLC, then I would be expecting to see working headlights on all of the rains. ;-)

    Good idea but I don’t think they’d do the whole thing because of the size and complexity.

    If there were a part of it to be developed, I would like to see the North London Line.... but pre-2006 (Silverlink Era) to include the line down to North Woolwich. And, if Rivet do it, you never know, they might include the Woolwich foot tunnel to walk through and/or the Railway Museum.

    I hardly think Size would be an issue, it's shorter than the longer routes we have seen before. As for complexity, the things I can see as complex - Stations, Electrification etc. Stations would take more time however overall it would probably be worth it, as for Electrification it isn't the first time they have done Dual-Voltage, SEHS, for example. And at Acton Central it switches, leaving only 1 power change across the line.

    Sorry i'll try make it clearer, the capital star is a train which is relativly simelar to the 377/378/375, which are trains we already have, so the amount of time to make it, and it will take some time, but i believe there are a few assets which could be reused

    Ah, got it. Yes I have to say I agree, that's why I threw the 710 in to... Shall we say, add a little to the mix :P
