    I personally think that DTG should extend the Riviera in the 50's route from Newton Abbot through to Moretonhampstead, with the Teign Valley line available between Heathfield and Exeter St Thomas.

    These extensions would add so much to the original route, as I see the Teign Valley line as a good way to travel from Newton Abbot to Exeter via a branch line train.

    As a matter of fact, I’m working on The Moretonhampstead Branch currently! I’m making it to use only Riviera In The 50’s route assets so as many people can use it as possible. I’ve got the trackwork laid as accurately as I’m bothered to get it, as well as station platforms placed. I may upload what I have done as a WIP. ;)

    I've thought exactly the same as the OP - I totally agree.

    and they are great pics.

    perpetualhobo please do release the WIP. I'd love to see it and could certainly use it for one of my own projects.

    YES!! Also, I'd love it if DTG added the Dartmouth Steam Railway line from Paignton to Kingswear (that's included in the '50s route) to the moden Riviera Line as an extension (maybe if they'd add the Kuju Black 5 to it + scenarios). :)
