    Hi,

    I am proposing the West Midlands Network Route Which will cover:
    • The Cotswold Line (Only Gt. Malvern to Pershore),
    • West Midlands Railway from Birmingham Snow Hill to Worcester Shrub Hill/Foregate Street line
    • Stourbridge Shuttle
    • Birmingham New Street to Worcester Shrub Hill line (Includes track where XC Class 170s bypass Worcester to Worcestershire Parkway as far as Gloucester)
    • Birmingham New Street to Redditch Line
    Trains Included:
    • Class 172 in 3 liveries (London Midland, WMR ex-London Midland & WMR)
    • Class 139 Parry People Mover in 3 liveries (London Midland, WMR ex-London Midland & WMR)
    • Class 323 in 3 liveries (London Midland, WMR ex-London Midland & WMR)
    • Class 170 (AP Enhancement Included) in 4 liveries (London Midland, WMR ex-London Midland, WMR and CrossCountry)
    • Class 166 (GWR)
    An Addon or separate route to this would be The Cross Country line from Tamworth (Upper Level) to Bristol Temple Meads. This would cover the Birmingham Bypass which bypasses University and XC Class 170s join on at Bromsgrove.
    Trains included are:
    • Class 170 (CrossCountry)
    • Class 220&221 (CrossCountry)
    • Class 800 (AI only in GWR)
    • Class 43 HST (AI only in GWR)
    • Class 158 (With AP Enhancement - Driveable in GWR livery to be able to drive from Gt. Malvern to Bristol)

    A lot of this is already in the third party XC route, even if that does have it's issues...
