    Route info:
    The Metropolitan line is a line running from the busy central London to Uxbridge & out of London into the chiltern hills to places such as: Watford, Chesham & Amersham. the line is 67 km (42 miles)
    Aldgate - Bakers street:
    Between these two stations trains share tracks with the Circle & Hammersmith & city line and its pretty much only tunnels with stops at:
    Liverpool street
    Moorgate
    Barbican
    Farringdon
    Kings cross St. Pancras
    Euston square
    Great Portland street
    Bakers street - Wembley park
    After here the line splits of going into a tunnel to Finchley road you might be able to see London Marylebone when peaking out because the line was built with cut & cover.
    From Finchley road the line goes overground with the Jubilee line tracks in the middle plus on the left you will see the Chiltern mainline tracks. here the metropolitan line goes nonstop to Wembley park while the Jubilee line runs as a stopping service. at Neasden is the Metropolitan line depot and its here where the Chiltern mainline branches of the metropolitan mainline but there will still be Chiltern railways tracks for the London - Aylesbury via Amersham service. At Wembley park the Met (short for metropolitan line) will get 4 platforms as here starts the tracks for semi fast/fast services although fast services won't stop at Wembley park.
    Wembley park - Harrow-on-the-hill
    after Wembley park the Jubilee line will branch of under the met to Stanmore although we are here for the met not the jubilee. now the met crosses the Bakerloo line & West coast mainline and into Preston road with an island platform. Note that there are non stopping tracks for both Chiltern railways & Semi/fast services. after Preston road the same thing happens with Northwick park. At Harrow-on-the-hill we will see many platforms:
    2 for fast services & Chiltern railways
    2 for All stations services to & from Amersham, Chesham & Watford
    2 for the Uxbridge branch
    Harrow-on-the-hill - Moor park
    After Harrow-on-the-hill the Uxbridge branch curves of. From here Fast trains to Amersham or Chesham share tracks with Chiltern services while the All stations & semi fast trains get there own track and at the same time semi fast trains start to run as All stations. then to Moor park where both All stations/semi fast & fast trains stop while Chiltern services don't stop and form here fast services run All stations. and yes there are stops between this section which are:
    North Harrow
    Pinner
    Northwood Hills
    Northwood
    Moor park - Amersham
    After moor park station the Watford branch branches off and services and now all services to Amersham & Chesham share tracks with Chiltern services and After the North curve (I Explained down below in the Services section) we arrive into Rickmansworth. This is the first stop after Harrow-on-the-hill where Chiltern trains stop and from here Chiltern trains run as a stopping service and now lets skip to Chalfont & Latimer this is where the Chesham branch branches off. Now we are at the final stop: Amersham not really much here but when trains reverse they use a turnaround siding.
    Uxbridge branch
    So after Harrow on the Hill the line goes under the mainline to West Harrow station. From West Harrow the next stop is Rayners lane. From here The met shares tracks with the Piccadilly line to Uxbridge with stops at:
    Eastcote
    Ruislip manor
    Ruislip
    Ickenham
    Hillingdon
    Uxbridge
    Watford branch
    Between Moor park & Rickmansworth is a triangular junction after the junction is where the Watford branch starts with only stopping at Croxley. After Croxley the line goes over bodies of water before arriving at Watford met.
    Chesham branch
    After Chalfont & Latimer is where the Chesham branch curves off please note that this is a single track line the lien curves a lot through the Chiltern hills to its last stop Chesham.


    Bonus facts:
    1. The Met is the only line with fast & semi fast services.
    2. The Met is the tube line that goes furthest out of London.
    3. Its the only line except the District that shares tracks with National rail.
    4. Its a subsurface line.

    Services!

    Metropolitan line:

    Morning peak:

    Back from London the service is same but only All stations
    Evening peak:
    To London services are same but all stations only.

    Chesham - Watford services:
    1 tpd both directions run from Chesham to Watford using a special track called the North curve which is not regularly used
    Chiltern railways:
    Services on Chiltern railways has a timetable and I dunno the non corona timetable.

    Piccidilly:

    Rolling stock:

    Metropolitan line:

    This train will have two liveries:

    London underground & former grey livery.

    the grey one will have its own new timetable & same with the London underground one which will include the former Chesham shuttle.

    Chiltern railways:

    Class 165
    [​IMG]

    This is a DMU running for chiltern on the service from London Marylebone to Aylesbury or Aylesbury vale parkway.

    Piccadilly line:
    London Underground 1973 Stock
    [​IMG]
    This train is perfect for Piccadilly line services between Rayner's lane & Uxbridge.

    Time to end!
    So after a painful hour of writing we came to the end of the suggestion please give your thought in the pole but you can like it if you like.

    Excellent suggestion here and this is actually a route on sister game train simulator 21 that needs to be in train simulator world 2. In Train simulator 21 the sister game of train simulator world 2 it's made by just trains which needs to come back for train simulator world version of Metropolitan line. Cannot be made by Rivet Games because it's going to end up like Isle of Wight and Arosa Line due to Scenery and glitch issues. If made this marks the entry of just trains into train simulator world 2 something that the community and myself wants more third party developers working for the game

    You mean the creators of this route for Train Sim 21. If DTG allows Just Trains to make this both S7+1 & S8 trains are standard while A Stock becomes DLC Trains. Since the route has ATO/CBTC Metropolitan Line plays like HMA S-Bahn due to the LZB ATO system enabling another train right behind you

    I think the line as a whole has such potential, and it could even be a larger route if the 1960s line out to Aylesbury were included. Also the fact it is sub-surface it gives a different feel to the repetitive nature of the deep level lines.

    I also suggested the Met Line a few days ago due to the variety of services you get and the scenery you get on a Sub-Service line, so a nice idea.
