    I'd like to see the route from London Waterloo to Shepperton with the South West Trains.
    As on Portsmouth Direct Line on TS, I would suggest the class 455, the class 450 and the class 444.
    The route itsself is served by the class 455, other lines on parts of the route are served by the other two trains.
    I'd love to see this route because when I visit my friends in Shepperton we often take that line to travel to London and I am absolutely impressed of that train. It really looks beautiful!

    The 707s also operate this line as well normally

    A route from Waterloo would be amazing, I think they should do Waterloo - chessington south, i has not been on tsw or ts before and it would be a great branch line, and the timing for the route is 40- 45 minutes, and Wimbledon depot can be in it

    Very much like this branch. Perhaps also the spur to Epsom via Worcester Park too. Freight (stone) also operates from Tolworth yard.

    I would go for Shepperton above Chessington South as it covers more of a different section of the line (via Richmond) than has been done before in TS with the PDL PC. I used to live on the Shepperton line (St. Margaret's was my nearest station), so I'm a bit biased.

    I'd like to see more than just one straight route though. It would be cool to see a "South West London Network" like we had the South London Network in TS. This would incorporate a few of the loop lines (Hounslow, Kingston) and some of the shorter branches, like Shepperton, Hampton Court, Chessington. Maybe even Windsor or Epsom/Cobham (but that might get a bit too big to produce).

    I like this idea, I do think it's better to have some branch lines included in a route to keep it interesting. You could have a mini network with the Kingston loop to Waterloo via both routes, the Chessington South branch and Shepperton branch. This would still have a good variety of services but is just under 40 miles so is around the length of some routes we've had already. I could see this seriously testing the capabilities of the game though with the likes of Waterloo and Clapham Junction and intensive timetables.
