    It's always great to get the rare opportunity to spend some time in the cab of operational trains and even better to talk to drivers and staff and get real insight into what goes in to driving them. These opportunities don't come up too often so it's exciting when they do!

    The thing to learn from this is that the closer you get to simulate what happens on the real railway such as random incidents and delays, the more entertaining and wider appeal TSW will have.

    Very great. It's that possible that u can make the project of the Southeastern Railway route between St. Pancras or London Victoria to Faversham with Class 377 & 395?

    Apparently, Matt confirmed somewhere that it isn't. Sorry.

    I don't know whether that implies that it's for TS2019 instead, but it kinda annoys me that they're still developing that instead of allocating those resources to fixing TSW.

    On discord, according to NorthRail1. I'm kind of curious as to how this was worded, as it would be strange to tag this article in "Train Sim World" and not "Train Simulator 2019" otherwise.

    It can't be "for TS2019"- the article isn't tagged as TS2019, the thread in that forum is locked, and they already have Virgin branded 390's, I think.

    I don't think it is for TS2019 because that already has the class 390 and the West Coast Main Line.

    If this did come to tsw, maybe the class 390, 350 and reuse the class 66 with a DRS livery from rugby to stafford.

    As I find driving modern trains too easy, it might be fun to recreate a full on driver test.

    I wonder if any train cos use DTG for their simulators - it's an obvious revenue stream.

    Anyways, if this is for TSW it's irrelevant to me as my hardware can't handle it.
