    Please, can you look at the Ramsgate to Victoria route? Add the connection at Faversham with the service from Dover. Base it in the '70s, BR blue, with 4-CEP/Class 411 units, maybe the odd EPB/HAP unit as well.

    I have the HAL and EPB DLCs. Also the CIG and VEP. Faversham to Dover would be a good start, especially if Dover Marine or Western Docks is included. With the whole route, the Sheerness Branch can also be included, as well as the route from Chatham via Rochester and Strood on to Charing Cross, or from Chatham on to Cannon Street. Lots of potential.

    Rats. It requires Kent High Speed which I haven't got. Ok, onto the back burner for now...

    The Kent High Speed route already has the line from Ebbsfleet to Faversham without any extras required
    It is normally £24.99 but you could wait for a Sale

    This route would have to be in the modern day and the route would do great on the AP class 375 electrostar

    AP Don't make a Class 375 - they make an Enhancement pack but you still need to buy the 375

    Also why would it have to be in the Modern Day? It would be good to have a good Br Southern Region Route as we don’t have one yet, despite the amount of suitable rolling stock.

    If it should get done, it would be better in '70s BR style - old-style stations and architecture, Blue-and-Grey stock....we have EPBs, VEPs, Class 33 and Class 73 as stock to start with. Develop the CEP and BEP as well to go with it.

    Oh wow, I saw Cat say something yesterday in another thread (regarding South Eastern Main Line) about the Workshop extension Danny's working on. Didn't know this thread existed. I am curious about this too, and wonder if the area from Canterbury to Broadstairs will ever get explored with it since there is not really any better time to poke over to there. Looks like a separate track from Dover to Broadstairs, bypassing Canterbury, and the path to Dover diverts at Canterbury. Nice way to finish the corner. That said, Leonard to Canterbury and around the Broadstairs loop, which would bypass Dover likely, could be a project itself.

    Seeing as DTG are based in Chatham I think they should be out there in their locale creating the North, mid and East Kent networks.
    Nothing more character building than photographing Plumstead station on a cold wet February day. ;)

    Wait, they are based in Chatham, but didn't finish the South Eastern between New Cross and Tonbridge while making Medway Lines?

    What? No mistake, check the post... *whistles*

    Slips happen, not a big deal. I know what I meant to say, just the wrong words came out. LOL
