    BEA86EA4-1567-42C3-A8FD-F45F87A6B79C.png Hello all,
    To begin with, I am thrilled that East Coastway is getting PIS soon.

    Here is a list of improvements and suggestions I have for East Coastway:
    - TSW2 skies
    - Climb up the whole length of the platform
    - Change the AWS ramps to green (I know Adam says that a route is stuck from when it was made hence why the signals won’t get changed. But the AWS ramps were always green and now southeastern has them, it’s slightly bothering me.
    - Adding Level Crossing
    - Add SDO
    - New timetable (like Rapid Transit is getting) maybe in line with when the 313 comes out. This is the biggest issue I have and now DTG are focusing on rush hour.
    The Timetable:
    - Keep the seaford and lewes services.
    - Add services from Victoria (Lewes platform 1 and 2) to Eastbourne (where they terminate). These should be formed of 8 coaches and call at Lewes, Polegate, Hampden Park and Eastbourne.
    - The services to/from Brighton to Ore and Hastings should stay the same but be 4 coaches.
    - Add London Victoria services to Ore (again at Platform 1 and 2 of Lewes). However these are interesting services as they come down as an 8 carriage from London Victoria but uncouple to form 4 coaches to Ore. The service from Ore would then couple up to that 4 coaches and take it back as an London Victoria service as a 8.
    I’ve added pictures (ore to Brighton aren’t running to my knowledge due to Covid at the moment.

    I Know Adam likes 3rd rail routes so hopefully these improvements come to light.

    I hope that we can get some Brighton to Seaford services that don't call at Southease, as in reality, only half stop there.

    There is already full platform climb up on ECW , and the aws ramps are green on SEHS , but not ECW so the aws ramps will stay the same

    I wasn’t aware that ECW already has platform climb up and I know that the AWS ramps in SEHS are green (which is right) but they should also be green in ECW because green is used for most third rail route. I have attached a picture of the green aws ramp at Lewes.

    Updated list for TrainSim-Adam:
    - Add Level crossing technology
    - Change the AWS ramps to green
    - Change the ECW 377 with the BML 377
    - Add Victoria to Ore/Eastbourne service.
    - TSW2 skies (if not already implemented)
    - Change the Hastings services as they do not stop at Hampden Park on the way up from Eastbourne towards Hastings.
    - Fix TPWS issue at Lewes platform 5
    - if BML 377 can’t be used change headlight display to show headlights as white
    - if spawning on foot, trains stop in the buffer on train platform 2 at Eastbourne and then details when taking a service over

    I have wanted the full implementation of East Coastway since it came out. I regularly travelled on it every day for 3 years, and everything prior to Eastbourne from Ore being missing makes the route feel incomplete. The lack of AI trains on platforms 1 & 2 at Lewes makes it feel dead in that part of the station, and it would be nice to see something be there aside from the Class 66 in 1 scenario and driving from there to Seaford in another. The Class 171 (2 coach service but has been extended to 4 for special occasions as Lewes and Rye Bonfire on November 5th) is also missing from the line that goes along the East Coastway from Ashford International on the Marsh Link.

    Before they do all of this they need to fix a thing where you can't have the P40 and Gallery cab cars in the scinario planner despite owning the peninsula corridor.

    If they're giving this route a look over, might be worth checking the Scenarios. I'm sure the Rush Hour passenger system will help, but I did Enthusiast Excursion last night, and my 8-car special train attracted a total of five enthusiasts, all sitting in the very last carriage! :)
