    I've been gathering information for RD support for all the Routes and Locos inside TSW2. I want to have a complete list and update it regularly. Based on the information from all the DLC I have completed the list below. I have a few locos and routes missing and i'm not sure about RD support for them - I marked those with question mark (?). Please, if you know the answer, reply and I will update the list. Thank you! With DTG listening i hope someday in the near future every loco on the list will have a YES. :)

    thanks for the list. will help me decide which dlc to wishlist/purchase.
    really hope DTG gets to the others as Class 101 is a blast to drive now with RD.

    Thank you for positive feedback, added YES for TGV on the list. Fun fact - I am waiting for my RailDriver too, should arrive any moment :)

    Does anybody have southeasteren high speed and raildriver so I can update the list? I am very curious for that route. Thanks!

    Thanks for feedback, added YES for whole route (yippie!).

    Does anybody have Rapid Transit Route ? I suspect DB BR 442 ‘Talent 2’ is supported, but what about DB BR 182?

    I do, but haven't tested it yet. Afaik, since the talent 2 is a different model from the SKA one, it won't be supported

    That's exactly what I was afraid for, so i didn't automatically put a YES. If you would be so kind, can you please check the settings, if you see maybe 2x talent 2? Direct test would be even better!

    Oh that's a shame. But there are improvements for Rapid Transit Route being prepared right now, so I am staying positive! Maybe we will be surprised and find a RD support in there :)

    Thank you for your feedback and your effort. List updatded.

    Great! Thank you for info. We only have two left for 100% completion of the list:

    DB BR 363 + Caltrain MP15DC. Anybody? :) Thanks!

    Would also be great as a download, either PDF or spreadsheet, to print out and keep handy.

    Did they fix the GP38 YN2 not working with the Raildriver? I know for a while it was only the YN3 that did which makes no sense why one would and the other wouldn't considering they are the same locomotive.

    Update to my question. No, the Raildriver still doesn't work with the CSX GP38-2 Yn2 while it does work in the Yn3.

    That's very strange. The only difference is color? This should be fixed, it's the same loco.. I also cannot understand why GP38-2 from Canadian and Penninsula corridor are not supported either - it's a same loco :|

    Anybody has Caltrain MP15DC? The last one missing.

    I think this is because the support gets implemented by the preserved collection crew for the old routes and I think they haven't looked into both routes yet.

    I have the MP15DC but my RailDriver is still on the way ...

    I don't own it, however I'm doubtful it'll work, since Peninsula Corridor hasn't received much love yet from the preservation crew

    I bought SEHS yesterday. It's not my usual genre, but I just wanted some more locos to drive with RD. There aren't enough and I really don't enjoy playing with keyboard/mouse. Let's keep reminding DTG so they add the Preserved Collection trains asap.

    Thank you friend. :) Thank you all for feedback to make this list complete.

    The list is now complete! So far we have almost 50% locos with raildriver support. Soon I hope we will get to 100% :) I know we will get there - eventually.

    I will maintain this list regulary with new Routes, Locos and RD support updates as they come along.

    Admins and moderators - maybe its not such a bad idea for this topic to be pinned? Your call ofcourse.

    I agree. Without RD the Class 101 could be a bit of a handful but as you say with the RD the 101 is so satisfying to drive.

    That's very nice! Thank you for your effort!

    Now it's testing time. I've already noticed, some locos are better supported than others. Will make a list of all the quirks for each loco.

    Is anyone getting worried by the lack of information on the RailDriver coming from DTG? I watched the stream for Rush Hour and RailDriver wasn't mentioned once but TrackIR was. Are they trying to drop it?

    Not really, they said that everything coming out since the first version of Raildriver implementation will be Raildriver compatible, and it has been (apart from arosa) so it's pretty much certain that rush hour routes will work with it

    If that proves to be true, great but I'm also a little concerned about the lack of info on the preserved routes.

    I think Adam did also briefly mention Raildriver on last nights stream (quite near the beginning) when saying one of the German loco updates was delayed so we would have to wait for Raildriver support for it (the reason it was delayed was LZB in case that helps someone find the reference). This implies they are adding it to preserved collection, we just haven't seen much evidence yet.

    For me it is simple now. For new DLC, No Raildriver = No purchase. I doubt DTG will lose any sleep over that, but it makes such a difference, that is the rule for me now. Even then I will wait for other reports. Arosa now has Raildriver support, but it's an example of how not to do it - It's better than nothing, but only just.

    dhekelian Matt has said on multiple streams that all new release locos will support Raildriver. The fact Arosa didn't at first came down to communication break down. Rivet thought DTG did it and did not realise they had to build it into their loco.

    For the preserved collection, we'll see soon when Rapid Transit and then LIRR update.

    Didn't Rivet do it for the IOW?

    Who knows which of the organisations did it for IoW. That was about the time that RD was released.

    I assume DTG added it for IOW as it works well enough.

    They claim they didn’t know how to add it for Arosa and now they have, in my opinion, they didn’t do a great job.

    I really wish there was a way DTG could just provide RailDriver and generic controller support in a customisable and extensible way, it doesn't have to be an easy to use UI, I know how to write code. If there were XML files I could add/edit or an API to interface with I think collectively we'd be a lot further along with Rail Driver support and probably some people building their own custom controllers as well.

    Maybe the update hasn’t worked properly for me but I’m not getting any response from Raildriver on the Talent 2 or the 767.2. The M3, M7 and BR182 all seem to work. The Talent 2 doesn’t show up in the Raildriver screen. The 767.2 does, it just doesn’t work. I’ll try again later.

    Yes, I have the same issues :( Guess i was too fast with excitement. Talent 2 doesn't show up in supported (expect for the Koln version) and it doesnt work. The 767.2 indeed does show up - but it's doesnt react to RD. I hope they fix this soon.

    Just one of the cab cars works! You have 3 to choose, select the right one and RD works!

    Ok now this is strange. On controller page it says 767.2 DABpbzfa DB, but with this livery it doesn't work. It works with 767.2 DABpbzfa livery only. Ok.... Thanks for info!
