    Hello, I would like to propose the Preston to Blackpool Route for Train Sim World 2.

    Running from Preston Station to Blackpool North Station via Salwick, Kirkham & Wesham, Poulton-le-Fylde and Layton. Plus running to Blackpool South Station via Salwick, Kirkham & Wesham, Moss Side, Lytham, Andsell & Fairhaven, St. Annes-on-the-Sea, Squires Gate and Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

    I've included a poll on which era's might be interesting they're both modern-ish. But also it might be interesting to add the Burn Naze Freight Only Branch from Poulton-le-Fylde on for the Pre Resignalling Era.

    I think it would be an interesting route.

    I also suggested this some time back. This would be a great route. Era wise I’m personally not too fussed.
    On a personal note when I worked on the railway in the early 90’s I worked at Layton stn for a time as well as Preston. Find memories

    Would be nice if it could go into East Lancashire, such as Blackburn/Accrington and upto Burnley Manchester Road for the Leeds service and Colne for stoppers. Upto date could have 142, 150/56/58 for the locals and 195s for Express.

    1980s era would have Class 104s, 105s, 108s, 120s for DMUs and locos with Mk2 air con stock for Blackpool to Londons etc.
