    Xbox Series S

    Installed routes:
    GWE, RSN, LIRR, NTP, MSB, SFJ, ECW, HRR, BKL, SKA, SPG, IOW, HMA, LGV, SEHS, ARL, CRR, CC, HHL, CCL, NBP, BRD, BML

    Looking into 387 services out of Victoria, where I have been experiencing frequent crash problems right at the beginning of the route.
    I decided to load every single one in the timetable up and test it as far as getting past Battersea where performance consistently improves.
    All testing done in 1080p mode. All results tested multiple times and replicated.
    Several services went without a hitch where the station was absolutely packed with 375s, 377s, 387s and sometimes the odd 465, so it seems unrelated to the number of consists present, but perhaps might be linked to certain specific ones which I wasn't aware of encountering.

    I hope these can provide some kind of insight to DTG which might reveal patterns. This took most of my day.

    Sadly I am not home, or my next step would be to load up the services that Series S has consistently crashing, on my XBox One, Series S and Series X side by side and see what consists come into view on the Series X version shortly after the Series S crashes, then check if they aren't visible on XBox One.

    Respect to you for taking so much of your own time. Doing better testing than dtg themselves :)

    And I think you have the right idea check where the crashes are happening on the Series X to see what consists are around at that time.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    I hope someone at DTG sees this and they follow through.
