Main-Spessart Ost: Würzburg Extensions As I have previously mentioned in the thread 'Thoughts on Main-Spessart Bahn route for TSW', an extension to Würzburg would help improve Main-Spessart Bahn. As this would not be added as a free addition, here is an idea of how it could be implemented in a paid dlc in the future, like the route extensions created for TS1. Whilst this probably won't happen any time soon, it would be good to see happen eventually. The Route On the above map, the Main-Spessart Bahn dlc is shown in red between Aschaffenburg and Gemünden. The two routes shown in blue are the potential extension to Würzburg. The line on the left is the high speed route opened in 1994, which diverges from the Main-Spessart Bahn after Lohr. Adding this 36 kilometre route would provide a high speed route with speeds of up to 280 km/h. The route on the right is the lower speed (160 km/h) Main-Spessart Bahn from Gemünden to Würzburg. Regional Express and Regional Bahn services could be extended along this route. The combined route extension length would be 73 km, long by TSW route standards, but still feasible in the future. Locomotives The DB BR 146, 185 and Doppelstockwagen featured in the Main-Spessart Bahn dlc could be used on this extension along with new locomotives. The ICE 3 operates the ICE 41 service along this route, stopping at Aschaffenburg HBF and Würzburg HBF, travelling via the high speed route. This would be the first high speed train added to Train Sim World, expanding the variety on the route significantly. The DB BR 111 could also be added to operate Regional Express and Regional Bahn services alongside the DB BR 146 and Doppelstockwagen, adding further variety to the rolling stock on the route. This will also expand the range of older German locomotives available, the only other older German locomotive available for TSW being the DB BR 143. Conclusion At a similar length to the Rapid Transit route, this would be a sizable extension to the Main-Spessart route but would make the route feel much more varied with a new high speed section and a new older locomotive. Whilst this probably won't happen soon it would be a good long term idea for Train Sim World.
