    A coal route through the Appalachian mountains would be a welcomed addition to TSW. Such routes as the old C&O or Clinchfield that include enhanced grades and tunnels. The coolest route would be the old Clinchfield route through the Natural Tunnel in Virginia as well as over the Clinchfield Viaduct.

    I'd love to see some older North American routes.

    Agreed. I hope the next US route is set somewhere between 1960-1980

    I would really like to see some older EMD (besides the SD40-2, GP40-2, and GP38-2), GE and maybe even Alco units in TSW

    I'm a big fan of interesting diesel locos that were either unreliable or were rare for one reason or another, such as Fairbanks-Morse, Alco, and Baldwin. If we get a 1950s-60s route, we need UP Sherman Hill, SP, WP, GN, PRR, B&O, C&O, N&W, ATSF, Virginian, Milwaukee Road, Clinchfield, etc. I really would love to see FM Trainmasters hauling coal on the PRR, SP, Virginian, or N&W. A UP 1950s Sherman Hill route could include a Gas Turbine loco. The Trainmasters would also be great on an SP 1950s-70s era route (Peninsula Corridor or Tehachapi Pass for example).
