    Today I'm going to list a few routes for TSW2. I dont expect all or even any of these to be made its purely my suggestions.

    • The route from London Liverpool Street to Stansted Airport including the branch to Hertford East, this route would be perfect for TSW2 as it features diverse stopping patterns and scenery. The total length of the route would be 40 miles and would feature the new Bombardier Flurt trains. The stations along the route are Hackney Downs, Tottenham Hale, Northumberland Park, Angel Road (the least used station in London), Ponders End, Brimsdon, Enfield Lock, Waltham Cross, Chestnut, Broxbourne (where the line splits), Rye House, St Margaret's, Ware, Hertford East, Roydon, Harlow Town, Harlow Mill, Bishops Stortford, Stansted Mountfitchet, Stansted Airport.
    • The C2C network from London Fenchurch Street to Shoeburyness. The stops along the way are Barking, Rainham, Grays, Tilbury Town, East Tilbury, Stamford, Pitsea, Benfleet, Chalkwell, Westcliff, Southend Central, Southend East, Thorpe Bay.

    Will probably be better to use the Bombardier Aventra as those will be working most services, the Stadler FLIRT units will only be on Stansteds. Also Angel Road closed last year, replaced by Meridian Water which is better located for the redevelopment of the area (and is picking up traffic nicely)

    I'd love to see the London Waterloo to Portsmouth Harbour line with the class 444 and the class 442 added. It would be good as well to see the East Coastway route extended to Hastings. I hope there's going to be more British routes added in the future as this would be brilliant. I would like some more routes instead of more locos

    Sherman Hill. And with the longer trains in TSW 2 it will look more realistic with the UP trains. Building America!

    LIRR's Babylon & Long Beach, Ronkonkoma or Port Washington branch; NYC Subway's Pelham, Cararsie, Flushing or Jamaica line; and Metro-North (east side of the Hudson River).

    Maybe Edit the title to make it clear that it's your suggestions "West Anglia or C2C" - as it is the title looks like a call for suggestions

    Sherman Hill is needed in TSW2. I think we need it in the 1950s or 60s. A 1970s-90s version could be good, too. If we get steam locos later in the game, we need UP Big Boys, Challengers, FEFs, and 4-12-2s.

    I like the idea of the Liverpool Street to Stansted route. It might also be able to feature some Overground services in the area, from Liverpool Street to Enfield Town, Cheshunt and Chingford.

    I'm not sure the Yamanote would work as an initial Tokyo route, while it's single stock (assuming it's set from 2020 onwards) it's going to feel very empty without all the outer suburban stuff, Keihin-Tohoku, Saikyo etc running alongside. Also a line that carries more people per day then the London Underground* would need more people on the platforms and trains.

    *The entire London Underground combined

    Given that this thread opened as a long list of route suggestions it's acted as a long list of route suggestions. If you want conversation focused on only the route or routes you are personally suggesting, please title your topic accordingly.

    Bit of an arrogant comment. I thought the thread said TSW2 route suggestions. Bit of a rude comment and you need to learn some manners

    It would be good to have some routes over Scotland and some down in Cornwall. I would like to see a London Victoria to Brighton route or a Brighton to Bedford route in the future. I hope they add some more London Underground lines as well

    Manchester - Sheffield-Wath... the "Woodhead" line. Yes, I know it' sin Train Sim... but it would look glorious in TSW or TSW2. Either 50s/60s heyday... or 70s run down freight and Hadfield units only. Come on.... you know it makes sense!

    A modern GEML from London Liverpool Street to Ipswich would be great.

    DTG will never add that as Euston to Glasgow is weigh too long for a route. I think that a more sensible suggestion would be London Euston to Milton Keynes, as that will tie in nicely with the Bakerloo Line.

    I think that might have been planned as in a DTG dev blog thing a while back someone had mentioned that they'd been laying track between Euston and Milton Keynes. Of course that was before the Virgin licencing kablooie so I'm wondering if a WCML route had been in build and had to be abandoned because of licencing. As the Bakerloo runs alongside the southern WCML I wonder if that was chosen because it could use assets from that project?

    They could do it without Virgin as Avanti West Coast has replaced them now.

    I would like to see only new routes for TSW2 and not remakes of TS2020 routes. Some of my suggestions.
    UK London Piccadilly to Uxbridge and Heathrow.
    UK Reading to Gatwick and Brighton.
    UK Brighton West Coast route.
    UK K&ESR. Heritage Line
    Aus Hornsby to Katoomba via Sydney.
    USA around Chicago and New Orleans.
    Can Canadian Rockies Vancouver to Banff.
    Eur Glacier Express Zermatt to Chur.

    These are only suggestions for the team, I have no inside knowledge but only asked to post suggestions on the forum.

    I'd like a British main line that hasn't been done before;

    - Highland Mainline
    - Hope Valley Line (Sheffield-Manchester).

    Both offer stunning scenery and a variety of classic traction depending on the period used. Neither has been done before either to my knowledge. Now would be a good time to do the Highland Mainline now that having AI traffic on lines with stretches of single track has been mastered.

    Hmmm... Keystone Corridor, Empire Corridor with Amtrak stock? A French route would be nice and an Asian route would be nice for a change.

    mintycal, keep hoping, a route that long (over 500 miles). I'm sorry but it's a kinda silly request.

    I agree the routes is lovely (I've rode the route a few times). Is there a section of the route ( around 100 miles) that stands out to you???

    Manchester Piccadilly to Stafford via Crewe and via Macclesfield. This would be a great route imo.
