    We have a few Train Simulator Routes that feature routes that are, in real life, and in present day, nowadays closed. It is the Great Central Main Line, which ran between London Marylebone Station and Manchester London Road Station. I want this route to be set in the years before its closure in the Late 1960's/Early 1970's. Now, I don't wanna go on for too long, so if you wanna know more about it, I would rather let Wikipedia do that for me, so here it is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Central_Main_Line. Anyway, here are some various photos I found of both the route map, and the photos of the line and its stations.

    And as always, to avoid plagiarism, I will link the websites I found these photos on.

    I do hope that Dovetail Games sees my proposal, and decides to make this route available for Train Simulator. As always, please tell me your thoughts and opinions on my proposal. Your voice really matters to me.

    DTG don't normally build routes that run over a about 100 miles or an hours driving
    They have already made two versions of the Manchester to Sheffield main line - The Woodhead route.
    And Nottingham features in the Netherfield Nottingham Route
    Most routes by DTG are relatively modern as that is where the market is - so I'm told
