    Are there any EasterEgg or unannounced features that will still appear?

    What has been the biggest challenge this year?

    Is the team looking forward to the time afterwards, when the routine returns until the new announcement in May 2022?

    Is there anything you'd like to share with the community?

    Are there any answers or statistics to the survey?

    Boston - Providence will have the Amtrak ACS-64, MBTA F40PH-3, and MBTA Cab Car.

    The Acela & HSP46 won't be in the route.

    1. Have the issues with the MBTA Cab Car lights (only ditch lights lit up after fix and not main headlights) been fixed since this feedback was provided following the second stream?
    2. Has the broken rail near Boston South Station been fixed?
    3. Is there a reason for the traffic jam at Readville Station? On the 2nd stream, two MBTA trains were parked nose to tail as if waiting for something to happen.
    4. Will Gatwick Express services run from Victoria and Brighton?
    5. Will Gatwick Express services be layered on to East Coastway?

    1. Will there be new sounds (perhaps provided by Ryan) for the 377 and 387?
    2. How many scenarios are included for each of the new routes?

    The Patch notes for the update include the fact that the UP GP38-2 will be appear on other routes than Peninsula Corridor. Does that mean it will appear on other routes that include other GP38-2 versions (CSX or CN) already. Or will it appear on all the other amercan routes? I would prefer the last variant. Because it would give us more variations.

    And it would be nice if all american freight locos would be available on all american routes.

    Four questions regarding BML:

    1. - Are Southern's Metro services included to drive using the 377/4?

    2. - Will the 377 destination boards correctly display two names simultaneously? In this example I mean services which split later down the line: Portsmouth Harbour & Bognor Regis etc.

    3. - Will Hove be included, if so, can we drive the Brighton-Hove shuttle? If yes to the previous, will the 313 be eventually layered onto BML for this service along with AI moves on the ECW and WCW out of Brighton?

    4. - This question relates to if we have Metro services (see Q1). If London Bridge to Tattenham Corner services are included (driveable to/from East Croydon), will Reedham and Coulsdon Town stations be included? For instance, these stations are adjacent to the BML - between Purley and Coulsdon South - before the line turns off to Tattenham Corner.

    1. If the platform opens the doors in a different state based on high and low platforms, could you now implement a working SDO for British Trains, and for shorter platforms on LIRR to replace the guard who would normally ensure only suitable doors are opened??
    2. Is the 200 passenger number 200 TOTAL or 200 different models at once that can appear more than once
    3. Is next gen download any bigger than normal
    4. Series S layers?? Do we know yet?

    PS4 and PS5 DLC questions…
    1. After the update, I will have both PS4 and PS5 versions on their respective machines, how will purchasing DLC work for allowing DLC on both machines? Will there be two sets of DLC? Is it the same as with purchasing TSW2020 DLC, with the TSW2 version becoming free to download, with both PS4 and PS5 DLC unlocking each other? Or is there just one version available and the consoles work it out? Or will it be two separate purchases for each DLC?

    2. Will the season pass allow all three routes on both consoles? So, If I buy the season pass for the PS4 will I get it for PS5?

    Will we be able to swap the new blue DB BR 363 for the red one and vice versa?

    Edit: From the latest Roadmap

    UPCOMING
    ▲ ® [Route Add-On] DBB-R7 06 Bahnstrecke Riesa - Dresden with DB BR 442, DB BR 143, DB BR 146.2, DB BR 363 in DB livery and BR 185.5 in MRCE black livery"

    What does Upgraded passenger system on Bakerloo Line and Schnellfahrstrecke Köln-Aachen mean? It was written in the "RUSH HOUR NOW ALL SUMMER LONG!" Post on DTG Live.

    When we will see the First Screenshots/ Stream from Dresden Riesa?

    I don't think you are right, 200 would fit on one train, wait for the answer before making nonsense up

    It has already been said it will be 200 passengers in total, with 100 on Gen8 Consoles, as opposed to 20 (All Consoles) and 100 (PC).

    A northamerican freight route would be more appropriated. Because Northamerica is freight first in real. And far behind freight passengers are following.

    From the Main Spessart Bahn Patch Notes

    "Added Passenger Information System functionality to the BR 146.2."

    Does that mean that the old Main Spessart Bahn DB BR 146 now has the same improved PIS as for example the DB BR 112 from Hamburg-Lübeck and if so, is the same Upgrade planned for other locomotives such as Rapid Transits DB BR 182?

    Edit: Have the MSB Dostos received the same upgrade, if not it is planned to do it?

    - Will all routes get the “unload all” instruction, or is it just the Rush Hour routes that will get the empty depot trains?
    - Is the improved winter scenery exclusive to Boston Sprinter?
    - After the release of the Boston Sprinter and the big update, will the team still be fully focused on Rush Hour?
    - What’s next after Rush Hour? Will we get the reveal of the next cycle of routes and locos?

    1. Do passengers still teleport to and from their seats on their train?
    2. Is there any audio added for passengers?
    3. Why is there still no passenger carriage camera while driving?

    On the latest roadmap the 363 for BDR is still described as "DB livery" while the roadmaps before stated it is the Bundesbahn Blue-Beige livery. Which one will we get? And if it is just the DB-red again, why has this changed?

    1. If I own the DB BR 101, but NOT Hauptstrecke Rhein-Ruhr, will the loco still be layered onto the Dresden - Riesa route?

    2. To get a full clarification: Is the DB BR 146.2 getting ANY improved sounds with the Rush Hour update? You literally cannot drive it at the moment because it just hurts your ears extremely...

    - I saw on streams that in the new version of the game, one can now choose the month in which you want to drive in stead of only the season in the current game. Will this be possible for all routes at once when the update goes live? Or is this only for the 3 new routes for the time being?
    - Can you confirm that all 3 routes will be released before sept 21 as that is the first day of autumn. We were promised all 3 routes in summer...

    1. Will all the trains we are getting in Rush Hour get the new dynamic destination display boards on the trains, and how will they effect the routes that have these trains. For example if the 377 gets dynamic destination boards for BML what will happen to the 377 in East Coastway?

    2. Are there S-Bahn services in the Dresden route, if so how far in the map are you able to play them to?

    3. Will future routes from now on get the ‘rush hour’ theme? (Busy timetable with a lot of AI trains)

    4. I am aware that previous routes won’t get the new passenger clothes and animations yet, but on next gen consoles will all previous routes get a larger amount of passengers? As I assume that higher passenger count is a core thing that will apply to all previous routes.

    5. Will there be AI southeastern trains going in and out of London Victoria in the BML, this would really add to the idea of a busy and diverse timetable.

    1. Has there been any work made towards making destinations choose-able with the new PIS system (eg. being able to change it to another destination ect.)
    2. How quickly do you expect the other routes to release after Boston Sprinter, especially since the last Thursday in summer is Sept. 16th, so that'd mean at minimum, the next routes would have to release 2 weeks after the last route to release (Bos. Sprinter > 2 weeks > Riesa Dresden > 2 weeks > BML)
    3. Why was the choice made not to do the more up-to-date interior in the Amfleets? Was due to a lack of reference images, or for another reason?
    4. Has the team had a favourite route out of the 3 routes, and if so, which one was it?
    5. Has the idea of releasing 3 routes at the same time / in quick succession been a mistake, and would you do it again?
    6. While unlikely to be answered due to reasons, what DLC could be expected for these 3 routes, especially since it the last paragraph on the roadmap alludes to the fact we'll see more projects soon?

    I can't find anyone who asked my question, so I'll ask it here. There was a mention of a dynamic dispatcher back in May when Rush Hour was first announced. Since then I haven't heard a thing more about it. Is that still a thing? If so, how will that work in the new routes and update?

    What makes you think that? The original NEC route in TSW 2020 had planes overhead when coming into Newark Airport on PS4.

    This is a great question. There are quite a few things that are mentioned in streams that we then never hear about again. If the Rush Hour routes don't have a dynamic dispatcher and all 'delays' are built into the timetable then that is quite disappointing.


    My question is: After the miscommunication over the Riesa-Dresden branches and the associated backlash, why was another miscommunication made in announcing Rush Hour passengers for Bakerloo and Koln-Aachen on 23rd July when it must have been known by then that this wouldn't be possible in time for release?
