    Hello DTG and community, I want to suggest some routes I really want to see next in TSW 2, so here is a little overview of all the suggestions of routes that start in cologne.

    On first place I really want to have the Eifelstrecke from Cologne to Kall or if it wouldn't be a problem to Gerolstein or Trier, so that we could have the full route from Köln Messe/Deutz to Trier HBF

    On third place I would like to have the route Cologne-Frankfurt (Schnellfahrstrecke Rhein Main) I know the route is really long but for some people it could be really cool, because it is the first hight Speed route in Germany where you can go 300 km/h

    Other routes that could be really cool are listed down here

    What's your opinion on the routes, are there any other routes you would like to have around the cologne area or are you happy with my suggestion, let me know:)

    Are you planning to link SKA with HRR RRO? I already did the link at Hagen Hbf using the Hagen-Bochum/Dortmund railway to link RRO RSN & HRR freight trains Hagen Vorhalle. This needs Koln Kalk/Gremberg making it the Hagen Vorhalle Rbf of the route

    Although Köln is an interesting and major railway hub, I don't see the point in any more routes from that area for now, unless they have some novel route linking potential, or some new kind of gameplay (i.e. diesel routes).

    Of course I'd like to see more of that eventually, but think of the majore railway huns not yet represented. Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Berlin are all still waiting for their introduction into the game and would be higher on my wishlist. In addition to that places like Hamburg feel like they need a more representative and busy route than what they have now (like Hamburg - Hannover for example). All this leads to routes from Köln and the wider Rhein-Ruhr area not being high up my personal list at this moment.

    I have fond memories of the Köln-Koblenz route in Train Simulator. Perhaps I'm a bit biased, as it was also the very first route I had ever driven in Train Simulator and got me in the hobby, but it's still a pretty interesting route. :)

    I understand your opinion, everyone wishes the routes that are at the area, where they live and I live near cologne and that's why I suggest the route, I respect every opinion, in the end DTG is the creator that creates all the routes

    Oh I bet there's plenty of people who'd be happy with a route from their country, even it's not their local region. You Germans don't know how lucky you are.

    The picture isn't located on the Cologne - Dusseldorf line, it's on the Cologne - Wuppertal line.

    I know, that's why I put it in, because it is a mix connection from the Routes, that the person suggested, because he wanted an extension for the route and the picture fits to Solingen
