    I just get a 500 server error when I try to load the roadmap. I guess the hype was too much!

    Steam is pretty big news, I guess we will see what did you chose as the first steam loco when the next batch of add-ons will be releaved, I can't wait! :D

    Pretty big roadmap, I am really happy about the direction this game is taking, yesterday's update for LGV was great as well.

    Also the G6 will be for RRO, shunting at Hagen or the container siding? And can it be substituted for a 363 and/or 204?

    Now the only unanswered question is Skyhooks' IT

    Well at least they moved the bug checklist to here so it doesn't make reading the roadmap a big task

    Got myself too excited for this Roadmap. Pretty underwhelming and still no date for Southeastern High Speed.

    Hopefully the Class 313 means we could see a West Coastway route in the future. I'm also hoping for more Southeastern routes as it won't take long to get bored of driving the 375 and 465 between Faversham and Rochester.

    Some of the entries on the roadmap seem like they’ll never get here. Hopefully now that Christmas is out of the way there can be a real push to fix as many issues as quickly as reasonably possible.

    I see there is still no mention of:
    • The messed up jobs on RSN & LIRR
    • Persisting trophy issues that have been reported in the tech forums.

    At first I was like...what does dovetail have to do with the valve/STEAM website. Then it dawned on me, I’m very excited.

    RailFan97 We don't announce release dates for content on the Roadmap. You will find that out when we create specific announcements.

    Does Steam mean that it’s Steam Locomotives or a fix for Steam the PC Game Distributor?

    Another unexciting roadmap for me, maybe the next one or two I'll see something I like.

    Very intriguing. I assume it is something in the core of the game to allow steam engines, but maybe it is not that exciting.

    There is a lack of content "in planning". I cannot believe there are no routes or stock in planning for the coming few months! I wonder what stage DLC goes from in planning to "in planning"!

    Yeah, I was expecting to see the new batch of routes and trains, but I guess they never said it was going to be on this roadmap...

    sadly its unknown for me too since it would better if they added a steam train to production if they are producing something with steam k nvm found this in discord = For those of you getting confused; the Steam referred to in the roadmap means that DTG are adding support to TSW 2 for the operation of steam locomotives.

    Still unsure about this. Running 1970's period services on the 2000's GWE! Will they get the correct DMU is the burning question I have!

    I was too excited to see what was in the content, I skipped the preamble. I will do so now and probably will feel extremely embarrassed ;)!

    EDIT: Yes, apologies, I should have read that bit first. I feel suitably humble!

    Good effort on the new roadmap format, but I don't like that you have to switch to forums to see the details, especially for items like "[Improvement] Platform departure boards added to Preserved Collection"... maybe a 2nd level bullet list would have been good?
    • [Improvement] Platform departure boards added to Preserved Collection
      • Long Island Railroad DLC
      • East Coastway DLC
      • Rapid Transit DLC
    Or a dropdown collapsible menu, if only the DTL was able to do that (I know it isn't).

    It's frustrating that you submit tickets and then either no one responds or if someone responds and also confirms the bugs and responds that they put it on the roadmap, but then only does it partially.It does make you ask yourself why you should bother at all.

    Having the bug list on here does make things an awful lot more readable.

    Please can you continue to show when new things are added, and when things move up and down? It's really helpful when having a quick look.

    Are people really getting confused as to what “Steam” refers to in the roadmap? In a train simulator? After all the build up to a big surprise over the last two months. lol

    Thanks, I did read it, as I said, you never told us you will announce them on this roadmap, so it's fine, no disappointment.

    Still can't wait to see what will be the first steam loco :)

    Similar confusion happened when they announced Diesel. Lots of people thought it was baldy film star Vin Diesel.

    2 points:

    1) SEHS is listed under "upcoming", which in effect means it's in beta testing. Which means that it's going to be pretty soon, although they aren't so confident in "within two weeks" as to put it under Next Release. Y'know, I'd much rather DTG takes the position "when it's ready, we release it" rather than "it releases on a fixed ship date, whether it's really finished or not" (coughEAcough). Although it's worth pointing out that they announced it, officially, with a teaser vid and everything, and historically that isn't done until fairly close to the rollout.

    2) The announcement that they have developers actively working on steam traction isn't whelming?

    Third-party DLC is probably not within DTG's fixing remit.

    That's why I'll use the 395 more then the 375 and won't even buy the 465 since there won't be a lot of play time with that train sadily

    I always assumed the first steam engine would be on the WSR but not so sure now. Very excited to see it appear on the roadmap.

    Well you have "Steam" which is a store in which you would buy tsw2 on PC so it's easy to get the steam store and steam trains mixed up. They've should've put steam trains to not get people confused. Personally I'm not intrested into steam trains so I won't be buying anything steam train related

    What happened to the "released" section?

    "it won't be long"... still vague... I guess that means we'll get our hopes up for next roadmap and may get dissapointed again. A more concrete ETA would be appreciated :P

    Doesn't matter, known issues for Isle of Wight previously still had a mention, such as the lack of a working timetable, and dodgy button textures in the cab on console.

    Why would they list Steam (PC platform) on the roadmap as it hasn’t got anything to do with TSW.

    Seriously guys, it’s not hard to work out that it means Steam trains...
