    All good choices but one BNSF/ATSF will not not get done due to the license restrictions.

    If i had to take a wild guess....

    BR Class 37, 40 or 55 "Deltic" in BR Blue for the Northern Trans-Pennine route, as they were famous for working there in the 1980's. Class 55's were always being taken off the ECML to work services there.

    BUT...

    If DTG wanted to provide their first UK electric trains in TSW, i would guess BR Class 86 and 87 on a new WCML route, as they are about the most popular and longest serving AC electric locomotives in the last 40 years.

    Next DLC? US route. Not a loco DLC, but since the US is *way* behind in number of available locomotives, it could very well have MULTIPLE new locomotives.

    Next loco DLC? No idea, but these are what I see as most likely:

    UK: Class 08 and Class 40 together as a freight pack for NTP This might seem a bit unlikely, after all it has 2 locos, but both are mentioned together in the game files somewhere, do it's pretty likely actually.

    Also possible is an EWS class 08 for GWE, which is also mentioned in that same file... but I hope they hold that back until the next UK route so it has a better route to actually use on.

    US: LIRR M3. No game files for this, but it seems like there are other DLC that aren't mentioned in it either (the 155 didn't appear until closer to announcement). It would work pretty well on the route, sharing the same services as the M7 and providing a different driving experience. It would certainly be popular to all the LIRR fans here.

    They could also do a CSX genset for NEC and CSX:HH, but I don't think this is really all that likely since the GP40-2 is already a loco DLC for the same services. Also worth noting that, while they DID operate on these routes when they were released, CSX has since returned them. That being said, I could be surprised... I would have thought the Class 33 would be the last thing for the WSR for a while.

    DE: IDK if this would be the *next* DLC, but I'm certain there's a DB BR 294 in the works for both MSB and RSN. One does not simply model kilometers and kilometers of unusable track if they're not going to be used later, especially track with so many opportunities for switching. Not only that, but this one's also in the game file mentioned earlier.

    This is the loco DLC i'm looking forward to the most, as there's not a lot of switching that you can do in the game right now.

    LIRR Port Jefferson Branch (or any other, for that matter) or a northern route; we don't get many of those at all. Things like the Amtrak Cascades between Washington state and Vancouver to the Amtrak Downeaster between Boston North Station and Brunswick even to the quaint GO Transit routes in Ontario. VIA Rail would also be great, but I think that'd require the excluded (and much-needed) Poughkeepsie extension of the Metro-North to even initiate the development towards Albany and Canada. The Harlem Line of the Metro-North would also be a nice addition to the MNR network.

    Of course, these are just suggestions and to be honest, at this point, I wouldn't expect DTG to even do half of any one thing above, if they do take them into consideration.

    And obviously, not all of these will come to fruition at once. But who doesn't love to dream about trains anyways? lol

    The 3GS21B would be a great addition (as unlikely as it would be) to the Sand Patch, given that the route is severely lacking in switching.
