    I would love some more class 66 timetables or even a dedicated UK freight route would be best. Not sure how feasible it is as a lot of UK freight changes from branch line to branch line to main line to branch line again.
    Would be mint to have a few combined lines and lots of different destinations such as euro terminals, aggregate and cement yards etc. Just not sure how possible this is within the constraints of the game.
    The 66 is my favourite loco on the game especially since the new update but its just a shame the services are all quite short.

    Yup I agree. it would be great to see more activities. Routing doesn't have to be hard - they share a lot of lines with commuter trains, so they can use existing lines. Just creating a 'yard' at either end of a route would get it going.

    Although I like the 66 and would like to see more services and routes with it, I wish there was a new uk freight locomotive. We've already seen the 66 in gwe, ecw, now sehs, bml even though it's only 2 services (layer).

    An alternative loco could be the class 59 becuase it has many operations with different operators and is kinda different.

    Definitely would love to see a 68, not so much a 70 though haha!

    Oh I agree with you there, I'm sure every time I do a service in a 66 I choose the same loco as last time which i thought was the right one. And I still always end up with the non updated version! There needs to either be a clear out of old versions or label them better to differentiate.

    Class 68s would get my vote. They are also in TSC on a ScotRail route.

    Agree a lot. A 67 or as previously mentioned 59 would make a change.
