    How about Electrifying from Hayes and Harlington all the way to Reading.
    Station announcements.
    More traffic.
    And the ability use different locos on different routes.
    And maybe Kings Cross to Peterbro updated for TSW......just a thought

    The use of other locomotives is one of my biggest issues with tsw

    Note this is what I would love to happen in an ideal world
    It would be great to see the whole route re released and extended to Didcot / Oxford (as per the original Train Sim version) So more type of trains could be utilised. Also freight trains would use the Reading Triangle ( for example one scenario could see you waiting at a signal in the triangle area (where you would be heading west say to either Hinksey or Didcot Yard. You haul the train to Hinksey then run light back to Didcot for example or for more realism run light to Acton :)

    The line could be fully electrified from Paddington through to Oxford (is it?) and Didcot and beyond.
    The IET's and HST's could still be running together as well as the 166's and the 387's(?) also the Heathrow express could be running due to the Heathrow express line being added all the way through to Heathrow..
    How much would I pay for that add on if they were asking £50 for it I would buy it.

    Anyhow Back to the real world....lol

    I agree that they should add the line (Cause I live near it) but I will make some pointers.

    They can’t add Heathrow express cause HEX refuse to work with DTG
    They haven’t electrified the line to Oxford yet

    Apart from that I would really want this route in TSW.

    I've been playing this route quite a bit recently, and I have to ask; is the area around London this dark in real life? It's as though there's a blackout at night-time, very few city lights.
