    So completely in love with the new dlc

    But not having rail tours and only having 2 freight timetables seems to be a big let down and does spoil the game side of it it would of just been a lovely touch to add in for all the other dlcs to use a class 37 or a class 20 for a tour just seems a waste hopefully this can get support to be change in the future and more freight times and tours added

    With 1400 services and whatever many AI services I doubt there is any more space left in the timetable without breaking it

    It is a bit disappointing that there are only 2 freight services. A few more would have been nice.

    Yes and for TVL Owners you can use class 20 31 dlc locomotives on BML. WSR Class 33 as a stand-in for the correct 33/1. Because BML used the Class 33/1 variant for SR EMU MU system unlike Class 33 WSR Blue Star MU system which makes it compatible with NTP Class 45 & 47 Blue Tees Valley Line West Cornwall Class 37/5 Blue Star.

    Hopefully if we get more services with a hypothetical Thameslink pack, then Joe could sneak in some more freight and rail tours ;)

    2 freight services is pants. Especially when you consider ECW has more. Impressed the guy worked so hard on the timetables. Really disappointed he focused on passenger only

    I no what you mean Joe said he ran out of time and he done an amazing job but even if they held back another week I wouldn't complain just to get the timetable as full and as real as possible for freight an passenger as freight does use the line a fair bit

    ITs more complicated than just plopping down a class 66 and telling it to go to somewhere like the CEMEX railyard near Three Bridges, the whole timetable would have to be simulated to ensure it does not cause any game breaking problems, especially as the 66 will be travelling slower than the track speed for pax trains

    Would've loved at least a few railtour services, especially with the Class 33 which has been limited to WSR exclusively so far. A bit more freight would've been nice too I guess, although not sure it's a good route for freight. It's a shame to have a Class 66 but no proper route to enjoy it (GWE is basically full-throttle all the way, ECW is just a few miles, SEHS doesn't really offer an interesting drive either).

    A class 52 or 33 railtour would be superb

    I don't own the 52 for WSR, but I guess it shares a similar fate as the 33 and being WSR exclusive?

    That comes with Class 700 and for retro purposes pre 2017-2018 the class 387/1. Depot for class 700 is Three Bridges & Hornsey while Class 387/1 shares Hornsey TMD with GX Class 387/2. If Steam locomotives arrive then a matching SR Battle of Britain & 4 MT Steam are the steam rail tours in addition to Blue Star MU Units Huddersfield Line NTP

    But then wouldn't the time table already have that in place if it is built of a compelete timetable or have I got my wires crossed

    The timetable looks amazing, but some freight and a railtour or two would perfect it

    To those of you complaining that it's "disappointing" or "a waste" that there wasn't time to include railtours or more than 2 freight services, I urge you to go watch the stream and see the genuine passion and dedication displayed by Joe. This route has by far the most amazingly complex timetable of any route in the TSW series which Joe spent months working on, helped by James, and that included a great deal of his own personal evenings and weekends which he gave up to create this incredible timetable. This forum can be so demotivating sometimes when we have amazing amounts of work done by dedicated and passionate devs who have crafted a timetable with THOUSANDS of services, including almost 1500 that we get to drive, and a few people still complain that's not enough. I'm sorry but get a grip and be grateful that we got so lucky getting Joe to work on this route and create such an incredibly detailed timetable! Thank you so much Joe for the amazing dedication you've shown to this route, I can't wait to start driving your masterpiece service mode.

    Aye, it's truly an unprecedented effort and I truly appreciate it. Hopefully, the freight and railtour side of things can be expanded post-release. For now, though I can't complain, there will be plenty to play with once I get my hands on it.

    Working on TSW must seem like a thankless task. The more they give us the more we complain
