    Adding to my comment above, I really hope this is not just another dreary 50 mile commuter or ICE run.
    Just did my first run from Dresden to Riesa and it’s got nothing to offer we haven’t already got with the existing German routes. A to B drive through flat scenery, choose fast, semi fast or stopping service. Obviously my Harz fantasy will probably remain that but there are plenty of locations and routes in Germany that could provide an operational and driving challenge along with less mundane scenery. They just need to delve into old Zusi 2 for some ideas - the Obereruhrtalbahn, Brilon, Altenbeken those sort of areas.

    Well guys, tonight's the night.

    After that there wont be any use for guesses and hopes :). As we already know it's German, I can only hope for either a Diesel route, a vintage (preferably '90s) route, or at least a route with new and interesting rolling stock such as thr BR 111, BR 120 and ICE 1 and 2.

    Give us a German diesel route, if we get one I hope it layers into Dresden as well on Meissen branch.

    Where's the fun driving a diesel on a flat route? If there'll be a German diesel, I want to run it through the hills on MSB or RSN.

    I found the Train Simulator version of the Mittenwaldbahn pretty boring. Despite being mountainous, it's mostly trees, and a low speed limit. Plus it came with... the Talent 2...

    It could have potential, perhaps a TSW version would offer something more interesting.

    Maybe it's the same case as january this year, when we were promised a set of new routes in a few roadmaps, and then we had to wait until Rush Hour was announced...

    Hopefully we'll know more soon :).

    Did they mention anything about the next German route in the transmission of the roadmap yesterday?
    I'm sorry but i couldn't see it.

    Greetings.

    Not as yet no, they said they are close to a reveal but holding it back a little longer before confirming. It would be nice if it links somehow to one we have but with a different feel to it.

    Yeah, Natalie said "soon" which could mean spring next year if the "soon" from the start of this year is anything to go by.

    True. I wouldn‘t hold my breath for an announcement anytime soon considering how that turned out the last time Sam was sure further routes would be revealed soon.

    Dresden - Riesa 2.0?
    Dusseldorf to Koln (this would be awfully long though)
    Delayed to improve quality of our Products?

    I’ve bought all german routes to date, but I’d dearly love a change to a new country and livery, as they are becoming somewhat repetitive.

    I find it a bit humorous that the “D??” had us speculating places such as Dusseldorf or Duisburg, and in reality it was just Dresden again :D
