    Now we have many British routes set in the steam era, like the Riviera Line, and the Western Lines of Scotland. But I think we need a well-known mainline set during the steam era, and that's why I'm proposing this route. I want this route to be set before any electrification on this route even started, so you can run both LMS and Early British Railways (1948-1956) Steam Trains. Now to get an idea on the time period, I'll show you some stations along this section of the line. Some of them may not match the time period, but it will be close enough.

    Now, as always, I will link the websites where I got the photos from to avoid plagiarism.

    Now I do hope Dovetail Games or whoever is in charge of making routes for Train Simulator sees this proposal, and decides to make this route for Train Simulator. Now as always, please tell me your thoughts/opinions on my proposal. Your voice really matters to me.

    I think you need to do some research before a proposal of a 1950's route to Milton Keynes Central which did not open before 17 May 1982 !

    Any UK steam era route is good for me.

    I see a downvote there already. These downvoters are really childish.

    Even a steam route to somewhere that did not exist?

    How about Euston to Rugby, with the Northampton Loop?

    I think we can excuse a little historical and geographical mistake.
