    2 Questions for the stream:

    • [Improvement] [DB BR 182] Expanded available train formations in the Scenario Planner: Can you drive the 182 with IC-Coaches?
    • Why is "[Improvement] [RT] Added LZB to BR182 locomotive" removed from Roadmapa? Does that mean it won't have LZB? Or is it just "We removed it because the work for it is done."?

    I think LZB was removed because the work was already done.

    Damn Cathcart came up very quickly, I know a few people will be disappointed with the time period for the Cornwall line, but I’m now very excited for it.

    Glad that there's light at the end of the tunnel for the 313. And Cathcart really has been coming along well by the sounds of it.

    Interesting that the time period is now different for the West Cornwall route. Personally I'm much more excited now but it may disappoint some.

    Cathcart nearing release is a nice surprise. Looking forward to this route.
    DTG is going to bankrupt me at this rate.

    "When the West Cornwall Local was added to the Roadmap last time around the code was listed incorrectly. It was listed as an era 5 route (1951-1990) which was incorrect - the route is actually era 6 (1991-2010). We're still finalising the loco selection for the route and will list them on the Roadmap once the locos are chosen."

    oops! Mistakes happen and that's understandable but I imagine some people are going to be upset about that one.

    So they era corrected West Cornwall, does that mean it’s more link that we will get the Class 150/2?

    Question for the stream: no cab cars are listed in the route description for the rush hour routes, on NEC or Dresden. Can we still expect dosto cab cars and MBTA cab cars with these routes?

    I hope the stream tonight has some pictures. Some were shown of MSB updates last time, so seeing progress on some of the other routes would be nice to see.

    I hope so also, as there's not really much route length if it doesn't include those two branches.

    The 314 will be the only train on the route as the route says in the roadmap( plus he route is in testing, so production is over) dissapointing in my opinion but oh well. But the route has the potencial of a loco dlc

    Still not sure about the IC Cab Car for Bahnstrecke Riesa - Dresden with the DB BR 101 as a layer. Also, including the DB BR 406 ICE.

    I hope Rivet will include more than 1 loco to there route. But if not add more locos to it in future extra dlc.

    Yeah they did say they couldn’t confirm the rolling stock other than the 314 for now.

    Glasgow Central is going to look pitiful with only 2 platforms occupied.

    Oh cool, the Glasgow route was the one I am looking forward to most (aside from the just-announced NEC) so very good to know it is coming soon-ish. Hamburg-Lubeck hasn't sparked my fire so I will prob give it a miss.

    I've gotta be honest this is the most excited I've been about a roadmap for some time. Between the 313 and Cathcart in upcoming, the Brighton Mainline, and West Cornwall local being set in a time period I'm more interested in, this is the most excited I've been for this game in some time.

    Dang, the Cornwall route is going to be more modern. Some people are going to think their protests and petitions worked when it was just an admin error.

    No historic British route will definitely hurt some. That's good for people like me who like a bit of modern content

    Question for the stream:
    Sam, you did mention a few streams before that we will see the new routes for 2021 in the upcoming roadmaps.
    So here we are!
    Now my question is: Are the nice ones from rush our the ones we will get this year (so only one german route) or can we look forward to some more new routes?
    And apart from that; what about new loco dlc’s?
    Can we expect more of these?

    Will the Dostos for Riesa-Dresden get the white stripe that the talent also has got?
    And will we see the quite unique “VVO” logo on the side?

    I feel like they added the 314 since the 313 is somewhat similar but the 314 has a pantograph so it would be easier to reuse assets instead of making a whole new train. A shame really that only one train on the route. Hopefully it will be good nonetheless

    The DB BR 406 ICE3M does not run on the Bahnstrecke Riesa Dresden route nor does the DB BR 403 ICE3. The DB BR 406 ICE3M is used for international services so adding it to that would be unrealistic. SKA is part of an international railway. The ICE train that runs on that route is the DB BR 411 ICE T so there will be no ice services for that route unless they make the DB BR 411 ICE T

    Another two questions for the stream:

    What happened to the guy who was responsible for the leak? ;)

    And - more serious - of course I know you don't talk about timelines in streams. But since not only the LIRR but also the other Pres- Col updates RT, ECW and MSB are in QA for a long time, can we expect a release at least before the core update? I'd be satisfied with a 'yes' or 'no'. Although I admit one of these two would cause a higher level of satisfaction ;)

    This is eppic news. A few questions. I currently play TSW 2020 on the ps5 , because it loads fairly quicker. I want to do TSW 2 soon, but this upgrade has me thinking - Would a TSW 2 save file transfer to TSW 2 ps5 version? I'd hate to lose my progression. Furthermore, being a trophy addict, will the ps5 version be getting new trophy lists? I'd hate to start it on the 4 version, upgrade to 5, then have a new list and incomplete list on a version i won't play anymore.

    I can answer that for you. The IC dosto train that runs on the route is the DB BR 146.5 IC2 and it uses 5th generation dostos. The one we have is the db br 146.2 with 4th gen dostos so DTG would have to make the 146.5 and gen 5 IC coachs. Yes the DB BR 146.2 and 146.5 are slightly different as well. Will dtg make the IC2 and DB BR 146.5, I personally don't think so but I would love to see the IC2 in the game

    Is there any way to prove that it actually was an admin error though? Think of this way. The addon was and still is in the planning phase. For the last 2 weeks when there were several forum posts about the route, DTG nor River said anything. You’d think if it was an admin error that Rivet would release a statement quickly or tell DTG to edit the roadmap. That didn’t happen. So it could be an admin error or it could be that Rivet saw the feedback and over the last two weeks made the decision to change course with route plans.

    We're getting a treat!
    GCC & 313 in Upcoming
    HBL Next Arrivals
    A modernised West Cornwall
    and London - Brighton!

    Now onto my question. As much as I understand you may not be ready or willing to awnser this, considering its now ready to go into testing and therefore closer to release, I ask this; Will Glasgow Cathcart Circle feature the branches? The route is around 5 miles without it, and around 17 with it. So my question is:
    Will it have the branches?

    Thanks

    If you read the article it's near the beginning.

    "Meanwhile, the Long Island Railroad and Rapid Transit route upgrades are in the final stages of testing and will be released as soon as the testing process is completed. We've removed the individual upgrades for Rapid Transit from the list for now ahead of the release notes which will cover the changes in full detail."

    Please can Xbox users have an update on the sound compression issue, where we experience spontaneous, loud and repetitive clicking and wooshing noises throughout all routes? Since the release of TSW2, I cannot play any of my content without this happening. Please provide some form of acknowledgement or update so we have an idea that this awful bug, which destroys immersion and game play, is being worked on. I've logged a ticket but just get referred to the road map. Thanks in advance!

    Steam description for the route says otherwise, it explicitly states the BR 406 ICE 3M will have its own layer.

    Here is an exert from the store description:
    • Bahnstrecke Riesa - Dresden – This 65-mile route features a variety of branches including Meißen with the S1, Dresden Flughafen with the S2 and Großenhain. Also included is the high-speed line for IC (DB BR 101 required) and ICE services (DB BR 406 ICE 3M required).
