    So the above image was taken from the PS4 (via my phone) on the Bakerloo route. So we all know that Dovetail now removes in accessible track as certain wet wipes were moaning as they couldnt get to areas of the large industrial area on Oakville Sub.

    So they have done the same here propped a barrier and then removed the track on the map...... But they missed a spot. Now this has got me thinking. What if its actually a part of a larger area of a route that they are Planning including the West Coast mainline and the London Underground. This kinda co incides with alot of the lagginging issues and drops in framerates around that area.
    They kinda did it with LIRR and the NEC. Yes I know people will say but its not on the road map, Yeah all fine and dandy thats correct. But supposing Dovetail hasnt released every thing in development to the Road Map (they are not legally obliged not to). Anyhow its this time of night my brain gets thinking a bit too hard. I mean c'mon we'll be more likely to get a GWE Route fully updated and expanded to Didcot or Oxford and the appropriate traction for that.

    Oh, that's an interesting and cool thought. Almost like an easter egg for us players of possible things to come. Hopefully your theory comes to fruition.

    The people who were misled into thinking the represented track was all accessible in OSD were not moaning wet wipes. They all had a valid point. The huge area was on the map and was shown on the live stream, where it was inferred that you could “go anywhere” in that area while it was on screen. That wasn’t the case, the route released with only a third of that area accessible, and a lot of people were quite rightly peeved. It was a low point in customer relations and has led directly to the more open and honest approach DTG have taken since.

    Besides that, they shouldn’t be showing large areas you can’t access anyway as it confuses everybody.

    Hello team. In the same way that calling those who enjoy the game "fanboys" is frowned upon, so is referring to those more critical as "wet wipes". It's antagonistic and is only like to result in a thread turning into an argument and then being locked.

    Thank you.

    I can’t see them expanding it until London Underground expand the real one to be fair, but they are adding a bunch more timetabled services.

    So this is the actual part of the line that has been shown on the Bakerloo map. Strangely enough it comes up from Acton Yard on the Great Western express route.....

    Doesn’t confuse me, all I know now is we now have a Bakerloo line closed off everywhere cause people got their knickers in a knott, we will get to a strange when you are confined just to the train to stop the whingers.

    Interesting. IMO if they could somehow combine the two, it would be really cool.

    I still suspect that was the original plan with NEC and LIRR but they just couldn't make it work. Pure speculation obviously.
