    Hi everyone, I was hoping the community could share fun or unique services to run. I personally enjoy the banking service on MSB and I also find the empty to depot from Leeds on NTP to be fun! When the new Valley route releases hopefully we can add more!

    I like the early morning services on both GWE and NTP around 6-8 am with Autumn mist weather/season setting, very atmospheric.

    I think I like the NTP "Saturday Special" services, they play more like a scenario. But IDK if they're my absolute favorite, RSN has some contenders for that title, as well as NEC possibly.

    Yes the Saturday Special services are fun! I also like the Traveling Post Office as that is the closest thing we have to freight on NTP. I do wish they had a service where you have to move multiple locomotives across NTP.

    Early morning services are my go to times especially for GWE and NTP. I love how the seasons change up the scenery and a little bit of rain can make you have to think about braking a little differently.

    Maybe the forth coming scenario pack for NTP will have this type of loco movement.

    That would be amazing if they did! I think anything for NTP would get me excited! I have noticed in one of the yards in service mode on NTP there are six class 47s connected. I should hop in and see what it says.

    I really wish a dynamic weather system could be implemented...I think that could make a world of difference to the immersion levels in TSW. I know TSxx had this (maybe not for all routes??) and I remember asking Matt about that in a stream way back when HH first came out and if I recall he said 'not yet' which gave me hope it will one day....

    I feel bad for the people living at Hanwell station. There's only one service in the entire Great Western that actually stops there. I like driving that one to help them out.

    Dynamic weather in TS2019 is still possible using weather pattern, but it requires a custom asset package and these are not allowed on steam workshop because of DTG's "piracy protection".

    Dynamic weather is possible in the UE4 Engine I have seen youtube tutorials on how to achieve this. If DTG don't do it someone from the community will once the Editor tools are out.

    After looking into more I was wrong. There are 4 class 101s connected. This is at Leeds station at 9:55am. After getting in the train there is a redlight and no sign of it changing. ☹️

    Is that the set of 101s which are all facing the same way (which I doubt would ever have happened)? I always wondered if that was a mistake or intentional!

    The 22-00 HST from Paddington to Bristol on GWE is a good one with a mix of yellows and reds.
    You have to stop near Reading to let a freight pass for some reason even though it's behind you!
