    Note: This is 100% Unofficial.

    Hello everyone, I'm here with another poll/survey this time about route types.
    I'm holding this poll just to help me (and anyone else who sees this) have a rough idea of what type of routes people want to see more of!
    (Who knows, maybe DTG will see this!)
    So I'll leave you with the options:

    Category 1
    A - B

    A to B routes (example; Köln - Aachen) involve direct operation between 2 termini on a (generally) linear route.
    Great Western Express, Rapid Transit, SKA, Bakerloo Line, HMA, HBL, SEHS, etc.
    Networks
    Networks (example; Cathcart Circle) involve non-linear operation between 3 or more terminal points.
    Riesa - Dresden, Cathcart Circle, East Coastway, etc.

    Category 2
    Freight

    Freight focus (example: Tees Valley Line) involving (mostly) non-stop cargo transports. (This does not mean passenger locos can't be on the route)
    Passenger
    Passenger Focus (example: basically everything) ok I think you know what this is.

    Category 3
    I'm not even going to explain this to you.
    Long or Short.

    Category 4
    Would you rather run through a city or through the countryside?

    Category 5
    Choose between the types of traction you'd like to see (Steam is obviously not out yet but in the future it will be)

    Anyway, I hope this helps other people who are making suggestions as much as it does me, and I hope this is quite conclusive.

    Oh and, if you ever feel like it, you can change your vote.

    By long or short, is that in reference to distance or service time?
    As you can have a route that's short but takes a long time to drive, and vice-versa.

    Also does 'network' include an A to B route with branches?
    As this does give a 'C' destination but may not be as network-like as Cathcart, like say East Coastway.

    The Long/Short is kind of in both, mostly length but it can apply as service length.

    As for A - B & Networks, I'd class East Coastway as the former, On other routes with similar layouts it might fall into the the latter, depending on how it's set up.

    Also you can have an A to B route but with different stopping patterns and service types, like Great Western Express, which gives a good variety of gameplay. Whereas some A to B routes like Bakerloo, every service is essentially the same.
