Discussion in 'Route Suggestions & Proposals' started by NJT Railfan, Sep 10, 2018.
Amtrak Cascades (Vancouver BC - Eugene OR 682km)
The IC8 in Switzeland (Brig to Bern(almost through the whole Swiss))
I mean take days to play it.
The Stourbridge Town branch line can be perfect in full length, it’s 0,8 mile :P
Die Rübelandbahn von Blankenburg nach Elbingerode
Can you speak in English, please?
That'll be The Rubeland Railway from Blankenburg to Elbingerode
Three routes for me:
1. Rhine valley lines from Mainz to Koblenz (both east and west bank lines).
2. Salt Lake City to Helper, Utah
3. Gotthard pass line (before opening of the base tunnel)
Why not the Gotthard Base Tunnel route? 57km of the same haha
Kansas City to Wellington. Part of BNSF's Southern Transcon. Runs about 223 miles.
London Paddington to Penzance via B&H and Bristol
Carmarthen to Manchester Piccadilly
West Midlands network Hereford,Worcester,Birmingham New Street and Snow Hill Lines
Norfolk Southern Washington District
WCML Preston to Glasgow in a Pendalino
The Rome Milan high speed route
100% agree with ya
Any line as long as it is several hundreds of miles long not 20 or even 40.after 20 miles im just warming into the game then its the end of session followed closely by annoying loading times just to chose another route.I really need a challege from this sim
Full-length electrified LIRR - Port Washington branch & Ronkonkoma + Budd M3 and EMD DM30AC with C3 cab cars
How about the "Officials' Express"? Namely, the ICE from Bonn to Berlin, plus the old line via Magdeburg in case the Hannover-Berlin Highspeed Line is closed for maintenence :p
Connecticut shoreline east New haven to New London.
The Caledonian Sleeper from London to Aberdeen, Inverness & Fort William / Glasgow and Edinburgh.
It`d have to be the East Coast Mainline from London to Edinburgh. Spectacullar route with countless possibilities.
NewYork city elevated j subway line
Although it's not large, I'd like to see the full East Coasway route, all the way to Ashford International, with the Class 313 and 171 added. At Eastbourne, this would be a great use of the walking function as you have to reverse the train there.
Via Berks and Hants line?
The entire Northeast Corridor from Boston - Washington D.C, and maybe even Newport News or Norfolk. This is to become a reality once Brandon and his crew set to work.
Manchester Victoria to Manchester Victoria via Rochdale and Oldham Mumps. The Oldham Loop. Length about 25 miles? Rail welding depot at Castleton so long trains of finished rails. A single track branch from Middleton Junction sidings to Chadderton coal yard. A large parcels depot at Clegg Street in Oldham which I remember long trains of 12 ton vans climbing the 1 in 50 to. If we had steam we could have the branches to Middleton and Royton and even the famous Werneth Incline which at 1 in 27 was one of the steepest gradients on a BR main line. Cotton mills, industry, Chadderton Power Station, rural sections through Shaw and Newhey, and of course in the V of the loop, Newton Heath depot. Won't happen of course.
The Routes of the Oberrheinische Eisenbahngesellschaft. Its basically a Ring with Start and Finish in Mannheim via Weinheim, Heidelberg and Edingen. Its Basically a mixture between Rapid Transit and a Narrow gauge Railway. Plus there are some sections where the Train runs as a Tramway, which would make for a challenging traffic.
I'd love the London Waterloo to Weymouth route. Mainly because that's the route my home station is on, so it would be great to drive the route.
Would be nice with the Bergen Line from Oslo to Bergen in Norway. Length: 482.2 km.
I'd give you guys a really amazing trip through country town, bush-land, tunnels and and lots of small stations. Romanian Railways (CFR) have main lines as well as smaller routes but due to the topic at hand a MAIN LINE would be suggested in this case. I would suggest:
Line 300 Bucharest–Ploiești–Brașov–Sighișoara–Câmpia Turzii–Cluj-Napoca–Oradea–Episcopia Bihor
Which covers a bit of everything, country side, small stations, lots of freight yards, lots of bush-land and mountainous towns with extensive aesthetics of a wide range of old houses similar to Russian houses in the country along side of the railway.
The speed limit for trains in Romania is 160 km/h. All other trains have a general speed limit of 120 km/h. Average operating speeds (including all stops in stations) according to CFR, are in 2018:
39 km/h for Regio trains
55 km/h for InterRegio trains
However the Main lines are as follow
Line 200 Brașov–Sibiu–Vințu de Jos–Deva–Arad–Curtici
Line 300 Bucharest–Ploiești–Brașov–Sighișoara–Câmpia Turzii–Cluj-Napoca–Oradea–Episcopia Bihor
Line 400 Brașov–Sfântu Gheorghe–Toplița–Deda–Saratel–Dej–Jibou–Baia Mare–Satu Mare–Halmeu
Line 500 Bucharest–Ploiești–Buzău–Focșani–Bacău–Roman–Suceava–Vicşani
Line 600 Făurei–Tecuci–Bârlad–Vaslui–Iași–Ungheni
Line 700 Bucharest–Urziceni–Făurei–Brăila–Galați
Line 800 Bucharest–Fetești–Cernavodă–Constanța–Mangalia
Line 900 Bucharest–Craiova–Drobeta-Turnu Severin–Caransebeș–Lugoj–Timișoara–Stamora Moravița
And the small/general services are listed bellow with most services running out of Bucharest:
Route Rolling stock
Bucharest – Iași (Now InterRegio) Yes
Bucharest – Bacău – Suceava (Now InterRegio) Yes
Bucharest – Brăila – Galați (Now InterRegio) Yes
Bucharest – Brașov – Alba Iulia – Arad(EuroCity with InterRegio fares to Budapest-346 Dacia train or 472 Ister train) Yes
Bucharest – Brașov – Cluj-Napoca (Branch of the Trains which run to Budapest) Yes
Bucharest – Brașov – Miercurea Ciuc – Târgu Mureș (Now InterRegio) Yes
Timișoara - Cluj Napoca (Now InterRegio) Yes
Oakville Subdivision is 6,3 gb and is 24 miles
Chicago-Los Angeles is 2100 miles 560 Gb info on hard drive. Wonder if consoles have so much space
But i know this is much desert and a little settlement much of this this stretch, but still.
If a route that interested me, of that length or HD space became available. Id make sure that my console could run it. Can expand Console hard drives or add SSD’s nowadays.
Cost and time is another thing. Oakville Subdivision is 24 miles. Cost 30 dollar
Chicago-Los Angeles is 2100 miles and should then cost 2000 dollar or more to buy
And should take several years to produce.
So much space in hard drive and a a fortune to buy.
We must hope Microsoft doing trainsim in future so it easier to do routes than now
Crewe to Swansea with the 175 153 158 and the class 150/2. It's roughly 250 miles so why not?
Route length to me isn’t necessarily what’s important. I don’t care about length, as long as the route has a lot of variety and. You could enjoy a small route with a lot to do over a long route that could be boring.
I’d like to see the Altoona to Johnstown section of the Norfolk Southern Pittsburgh line.
I'd love to see DTG take a stab at Covent Garden to Leicester Square. They should be able to manage that, as most of it is in a tunnel, which they could represent as a featureless tube. It is about 300 (three hundred...!) yards long, so they might not be able to do all of it for just £24.99.
What Patchouge to Jamaica station there’s one train that takes 1 hour and 34 minutes it’s train 8460 I’m not sure where it stops but it would definitely be awesome to see part of the south shore of Long Island sometime in the future.
Paddington to Penzance either set around 1960 with WR steam and some early diesel hydaulics and DMU's. Failing that a version set a bit later in the BR Blue period.
However that would be extremely unrealistic so a recreation of Riviera in the 50's would suit me fine, possibly with the full Mortenhampstead branch line, maybe going to Plymouth too with the Brent to Kingsbridge branch. A service mode representing a summer Saturday in the 50's would provide a very busy and interesting experience. One can hope we might see something like it in the future.
I would give this proposal my full support. It's a marvellous idea. I have always loved the Riviera.
What's the use in that? It's got everything I hate about these DTG routes, and everything I imagine the OP hates, for having created this thread in the first place. I don't want to take over the train from some other smelly driver at Leicester Square and sit in his pool of sweat. No! I want to have driven the train all the way from Heathrow, Rayner's Lane or Northfields. Nor do I want to get booted out at Covent Garden (and having to climb all those stairs too!). No! I want the whole route. I want to drive to Cockfosters!
The Picadilly Line's fine, but you've picked the wrong bit of it. Holborn to Aldwych is the route we want. Admittedly it's over a hundred yards longer than Covent Garden to Leicester Square, which might place it beyond DTG's means, but it is a complete route.
You'd get the tracks going in both directions. So Covent Garden - Leicester Square is not as short as you think - because the other tunnel is a "route unto itself".
Also - there must be at least 600 trains going in each direction, every day. So a full 24 hr timetable could have over 1000 individual service scenarios.
Can you imagine the trophies? "Covent Garden Market Mille Mille" - Complete 1000 services in each direction.
What about the Stourbridge branch line? The Class 139 alone is worth £30.
Yamanote Line, infinitely long - though scenery does start repeating every hour
Buffalo & Pitsburgh Railroad, or CSX between Selkirk, NY and Niagara Falls, NY.
New York Central (NYC) Putnam Division: Brewster - Sedgwick Ave.
How about the full length Eurostar Line - Amsterdam to London
Running through 4 different contries (NL-BE-FR-UK) would be interesting, wouldn't it?
As long as released for consoles then yes
I would definitely like to see Wassaic to grand central station Metro north.
The south wales valley lines with classes 150/2,143,142,153 and ews & freightliner class 66 on coal.
