    Is this all one route or are we switching at Dover?

    too much cross over with the Faversham route IMO, although this is the route they *should* have done out of the 2 IMO

    90 Miles for TSW may seem a bit long, and also the lack of Eurostar wouldn't make much sense as this goes along HS1. Apart from that I don't see a problem with this suggestion

    I made a similar suggestion that goes to Dover Priory but from Ashford International. I also provided more of an out of the box idea of setting it in the past as the late 1930s with a scenario(s) that uses the Golden Arrow service from London Victoria to the now-closed Dover Marine... once DTG as perfected steam locomotives first.

    Whether there is an appetite for such a route and scenario in the TSW community is hard to say. To a lot of people, the past is seemingly a taboo area and there is often a desire to focus on modern themes. But a route to Dover in the past or the present will be nice to see.

    I think this is what SEHS should have been. It is branded as a High Speed Focused Route yet most of the route has a Limit of 75MPH and most of the Services are on the 375(465) rather than the 'High Speed' 395. A better Name would be Southeastern Commuter Network

    Best option for this is actually continuing from the lower level of Ebbsfleet International to Dover Priory. The return trip to London St Pancras screen will say Do you wish to Continue to London St Pancras Yes or No?

    St Pancras to Ramsgate would be easier.
    And frankly prettier.
