    I rather we didn't get extensions in the sense of you requiring ownership of the base route it's being extended from. In the case of Cross-City, if we got the Cross-Country line down to Bristol the value of such route would be reduced for those who already own the section to Bromsgrove.

    Similarly, the reason I haven't yet purchased TSW3 is because the price of the SEHS extension doesn't justify the additional content in my view, I would be paying £30 for a route I already own part of (and neither the US or DE routes interest me).

    Luckily because Cross-City will be featured in a starter pack, I can buy Cross-City and essentially get SEHS extended for free :)

    SEHS is a lot better now, just needs Eurostar and Thamslink to Rainham really and it's the full deck.

    A lot of this thread is wishful thinking about extensions, networking, additional locos etc..

    Show me any evidence that DTG is contemplating, let alone planning, any of these things for existing or future routes.

    Apart from a very few isolated locos tied to a particular route, one make-up branch and one or two packs here and there, oh and one so-called extension which was actually a rebuild, there's no reason to expect that to change anytime soon.

    So, dream on fellow players, whistle Dixie if you must. If wishes were horses, as they say.

    Perhaps the depot was included after all? If you look at the auto testing screenshot on the roadmap Soho Depot is listed as a spawn point that was tested within the route.

    Unfortunately JD has already confirmed again when I asked today about that exact screenshot that the depot is not coming with the route.

    It’s just been confirmed on stream soho depot is not in route. It is on an autotune document posted only as a spawn point but it has been confirmed no time to develop

    I can imagine they can pull anything dev time and commercial viability allows in future yes, doesn’t unfortunately mean they will. There’s a huge depot on London brighton with short services in it. I don’t personally think they add much. If trains needed maintenance and you had maintenance services, that’d be interesting. Bit like car mechanic simulator

    They'll need people for it available to do it since it might take a while to do. Adding services in, extending services would also require work on the timetable. Meiben only occured cuz dtg had outside contractors/employees/whoever they were who were willing/able to do it. So unless they have additonal staff and time available, this won't happen since a lot of other dlcs are getting created

    They did the same with SEHS. Slade Green depot is less than 2 miles from Dartford but yet never made it into the game. It does make a difference to game play. When you have a service that says, "Slade Green depot to XXX" and you start at Dartford, it's annoying.
    Also, the way I play the game by starting the timetable from the earliest and doing each service in chronological order until I have completed the day means you miss out on all the stabling moves.

    There won't be a depot sadly.

    Unfortunately as much I enjoy a lot of what DTG do and I am almost certainly going to purchase Cross City, you get the feeling they tend to do just enough to get away with which leaves what might be small but interesting bits of game play missing.

    Soho depot would have been a nice touch and a relatively small extension, a lot of it in tunnel. The Boulby branch is missing from TVL which would have given some interesting freight movements, not having the Greenford branch on GWE even though so services from Paddington go there in the game.

    Is the English Cross City route just having one train then? Seems a little sparse no? I hope it has more. Would DTG bundle this route with TSW3 I wonder? As then I would look at it, I don't want the other routes. Is there any news on the Rivet UK route and when it would release?

    It is Birmingham Cross City route not the cross country route. A small part of the route also sees cross country services.

    Yes cross country will be bundled with core so if you haven't picked up tsw3 yer, you can get it with cross country and nothing else.

    Only 1 train. But it's getting layers from other content which they will reveal in the article coming out next week. So we'll probably see the class 66 for freight and the rhtt for its services but it's a layer, not part of the base route.

    It has been mentioned by other forum members that Rivet will not announce their route this year. Rivet might drop a teaser or something but until they happens, we know nothing

    TSW is still in a phase of having just not the available stock developed yet. DTG cant just delay all releases until 4 trains are ready to make the route more alive. So im ok to get additional loco dlcs or compromises with 1 new train.
    Gameplay dlcs like köln achen are the perfect example that dtg is also going back and add static stock and additional services.

    The 323 is a good joice. For people cant wait, there is a manual from "northern" attached.

    Cross Country? Do shoot me down if I'm wrong but I thought it was cross city line or have I just been really ignorant and not listened/read correctly.

    So it is cross city then? I thought I had lost the plot for a minute!

    You may well be onto something there then. I wonder if they have a wheel with all their names on it in the office to decide who will let something slip next! ;)

    It’s called the Cross City Line. No idea where Cross Country has come from, unless that a subtle hint that Cross Country trains are coming to TSW ;)

    I meant the Birmingham Cross City, my bad.

    That is tempting Matt, Thank you. I assume you meant Brum Cross City.

    I have a similar thing I use on the ETS2/ATS Steam forums, any time someone asks "when is the next state going to be released?" I say that SCS are waiting until two weeks after the last person asks the question. Hence, whenever the topic gets raised I just make a post saying that the 2 week timer has been reset. Given that the question gets asked multiple times a week, needless to say some DLC is never going to be released at that rate ;)

    Why set your sights so low? The Orient Express (no, not the cut-down Semplon, the original Paris-Istanbul run. With steam, and detailed coach interiors.)

    No dice. I pay for a CrossCountry route, I get a CrossCountry route. I expect my train to fly to France in the middle of the track, or my wallet’s going to cross countries to China to see what Union Workshop have going on.

    For a UK route in scotland ?
    Doesn't a new railway line to and from GLASGOW sound crazy at all.
    I hope for a Scottish railway line with preferably class 380 train.
